Designing With Artificial Intelligence
Proceedings of the First Conference
We are happy to announce that the Proceedings of the First Conference on Designing With Artificial Intelligence by Marc Engenhart and Sebastian Loewe is downloadable for free now!
The Proceedings cover theoretical papers on the impact of machine learning on design and its principles, practical research on how machines can be used to create design and art, and essays on the discourse of the creative nature of artificial intelligence. Machine-intelligent systems and processes are no longer simply science fiction. Users are now surrounded by an overwhelming amount of digitally intelligent applications. These applications, while running seamlessly in the background of customer-centered products and hence going unnoticed by users, become deeply influential in the design of digital products’ user experiences. This pervasive implementation contrasts starkly with the absence of digitally intelligent applications in the critical academic discussion of applied AI-based design practices.
The conference raises the following questions that result from designing both with and for machine learning algorithms and assist systems: How do designers’ traditional understandings of their practices change when the machine makes fundamental and far-reaching design decisions in the blink of an eye and ceases to be merely a passive design tool? How do design practices change when predictions become a major part of the user experience? What ramifications do these changes have on the notion of creativity? Also, how can designers (re-)design human-machine participation and what kinds or levels of agency do designers retain? Lastly, how does machine learning alter strategic design, corporate identity, and the idea of personal design aesthetics?
To address these questions selected experts from the fields of design, science, art and industry have been invited to present their visions in four separate keynotes. Additionally, the conference is scheduled to provide an inspiring program of discussions, paper talk sessions, case studies, workshops, as well as enough time to engage in dialog and network with participants.
Designing with Artificial Intelligence in 2020 aims to bring together a diverse audience of design practitioners, design managers, design theorists, design leaders, and interdisciplinary thinkers interested in the pressing questions raised.
