Jan Chipchase can guess what's inside your bag and the contents of your fridge. It isn't a second sight or a carnival trick; he knows about the ways we think and act because he's spent years studying behavioral patterns. As principal researcher for Nokia, Chipchase travels around the world in search of patterns that will inform the design of products we don't even know we want… yet. His discoveries and insights help inspire the development of the next generation of phones and services at Nokia. In this fascinating TEDTalk, Chipchase examines his investigation into the ways we interact with technology, how this has led him from the villages of Uganda to the insides of our pockets, and the many unexpected discoveries he has made along the way.
