Scott Davidoff is researching how smart a smart home should be. Scott\'s current work explores what happens when the home becomes an agent in helping families coordinate. To answer this question, Scott applies interaction and experience design thinking to ubiquitous and context-aware computing. Scott argues that smart home work is limited when teams marry themselves to a singlve vision. To resist this early commitment, Scott introduced Speed Dating. Speed Dating provides a structured way to flirt with design alternatives. Scott works at Carnegie Mellon\'s Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and is also Principal of Scott Davidoff Design, a boutique design consultancy. Scott holds a Masters in HCI from CMU and a BA in Political Theory and English from Duke.
