AIX – UX Heuristics for Deep Learning powered Mobile Applications with Image Classification

19/07/2023 06:14

Advances in mobile applications providing image classification enabled by Deep Learning require innovative User Experience solutions in order to assure their adequate use by users. To aid the design process, usability heuristics are typically customized for a specific kind of application. Therefore, based on a literature review and analyzing existing mobile applications with image classification, we propose an initial set of AIX heuristics for Deep Learning powered mobile applications with image classification decomposed into a checklist. These results of this research can be used to guide the design of the interfaces of such applications as well as support the conduction of heuristic evaluations supporting the development of image classification apps that people can understand, trust, and can engage with effectively.

Online Course
In order to facilitate the usage of the checklist we also developed an online course presenting the concepts and heuristics available online for free in Brazilian Portuguese.

Online tool
In to facilitate evaluations using the proposed heuristics and checklist, we also developed a web tool that guides the evaluation by presenting each item of the checklist by its name, brief explanation, image with example and its corresponding response alternatives. In the end, the tool summarizes the results by presenting a list of the checklist items and visually indicating the items that are not satisfied, as well as general percentage of the items that are satisfied. The report can also be downloaded in pdf format. The tool has been developed in javascript and is available online for free in English and Brazilian Portuguese.
