A big thank you to Fair UI for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week.
How might UI design help counteract racial and gender-based discrimination in online platforms? Are there UI patterns that could make a difference in this area? If so, what are they and how should they be used?
We don’t have the answers to any of these questions yet, but we are trying to find out.
Fair UI is a new Samhæng research project to look into these topics. The objective of Fair UI is to create evidence-based resources for UI professionals aiming to deal with these issues. This survey is our first step in that direction. It aims to get an overview of some of the issues that designers are currently facing and an idea of how we can begin to build better support materials.
