Last year, a Spotify intern named Sander Dieleman applied a powerful machine learning technology called “deep learning” to their database, allowing the program to learn to analyze music. The neural network automatically — using nothing but raw audio data — came to recognize distinctive patterns in the music.

How empathy benefits your marriage

When you practice empathy in your marriage, you will transform your marriage into a stronger, more real and more enjoyable union. Spouses will actually know and love each other for who they truly are In sha Allah, when they are able to bond at an emotional level.


Most people agree that open communication is the cornerstone of a healthy marriage. However, marriage therapists believe that ordinary communication is not enough. What a marriage really needs to thrive is emotional understanding, or empathy.

 

How can we practice empathy in our marriages?...

1. Empathizing with others starts with self-empathy...

2. Recognize and validate your spouse’s feelings...

3. Help your spouse empathize by genuinely expressing your feelings...

4. Use empathy during disagreements...

Thinking of Design: Interviewing with Empathy

Thinking of Design: Interviewing with Empathy | Ideas4transform | Scoop.it
Interviewing with Empathy
Interviewing with Empathy can be one of the more challenging Design Thinking skills to learn. One method is to observe someone else who knows how to do it, but I recently came across the web page of an organization that appears to have been polishing their empathic listening skills since the 1960's.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication emerged from work done by Marshall Rosenberg with civil rights activists, mediating between rioting students and college administrators and working to peacefully desegregate public schools.

What is an empathy map, and why do we use it?

An empathy map allows you to synthesize all the different things you have observed, heard, and read about your customers. Once you begin to brainstorm the customer’s daily experience, new insights about their current obstacles and needs will emerge.


Empathy maps help you stay grounded and in the minds of your users.

How to Use Persona Empathy Mapping | UX Magazine

How to Use Persona Empathy Mapping | UX Magazine | Ideas4transform | Scoop.it

A workshop activity that forges alignment on user needs, goals, and pain-points, Persona Empathy Mapping bridges the gap between personas and design concepts.


Empathy: it’s a buzzword in the UX design world. Everybody’s doing it! But what exactly are they doing?


There isn’t a quick “Empathy Filter” that we can apply to our work or our team, no formula to pump out results, and no magic words to bring it forth. There is, however, a simple workshop activity that you can facilitate with stakeholders (or anyone responsible for product development, really) to build empathy for your end users. At Cooper, we call it Persona Empathy Mapping.

Seeing that Apple is always talking about the user experience with its devices, it only make sense that creating a (hopefully) reliable high-speed network with enhanced cloud services would be next. It'll be interesting to see how each of the big companies like Google, Comcast, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple all vie for that top networking/cloud spot.

Design Thinking Students: Students Co-Designing Their Own School for the Sake of Empathy

Design Thinking Students: Students Co-Designing Their Own School for the Sake of Empathy | Ideas4transform | Scoop.it

In order to inspire, motivate, and engage students in the learning experience, it is necessary to look at the world through their eyes.  When adults pause and consider the world through from the students’ perspective, we begin to examine their authentic needs, instead of the needs imposed upon them.  Educational models that value and incorporate student input are emerging as empathic to students’ needs. ...



This is how empathy as a skill is cultivated through design thinking in the K-12 arena. Planning one’s own educational framework is a wonderful empathy-building tool. It stimulates students’ engagement and intrinsic motivation while encouraging them to practice self-empathy in service of empathy for others.
