We support our clients with assumption validation and evidence gathering. We are able to offer custom-designed studies, analyses of the state of the art, and technology assessment through technical tests, heuristic evaluation or tests involving users.
In order to tailor technology to users’ needs and demands, we also offer user research services, whereby we gather insights on end-user groups which help our partners to gain in-depth knowledge of their target groups.
/ Custom-designed studies
From understanding user needs to assessing feasibility or impact of any given technology, we can help you design your study in order to gather the evidence you require to make better informed decisions or to validate assumptions about your technology.
/ State of Art
Within our scientific competences, we are able to help you through analyses of state of the art, including not only scientific literature review, but also on competitive analyses of existing technology.
/ Technology Assessment
We can perform technology assessment through different techniques, depending on your requirements and your purposes, which can be discussed with our researchers. Technology assessment may be made with experts in the subject domain, with end-users of the technology or even without resorting to human beings, in cases where only technical performance is to be evaluated. Assessment protocols with users may be made in situ or within a controlled environment. AICOS will help you design the study.
/ User Research
User research studies may inform different stages of technology development. AICOS may support you in eliciting requirements by conducting initial studies with future end-users of the technology, and we may conduct user research in the scope of technology assessment by validating prototypes at different readiness levels.
