The workshop on Cognition and Artificial Intelligence for Human-Centred Design will bring together interdisciplinary scientific perspectives on human-centred design particularly focussing on the theme of Artificial Intelligence and Computational Cognitive Systems supported next-generation design technologies.
The workshop is organised as part of the 26th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI, http://ijcai-17.org) to be held in Melbourne, Australia during August 19 - 25 2017.
Human-Centred Cognitive Assistance Lab.
Department of Computer Science, University of Bremen, Germany.
The workshop brings together experts in Artificial Intelligence, Spatial Cognition, Cognitive Science, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design Studies with researchers and practitioners in design concerned with investigating the cognition of the designed artefacts as well as the cognition of the design process.
The workshop will feature invited and contributed research advancing the practice of human-centred design particularly from the viewpoints of theories and methods developed within the fields of:
Design domains being addressed include, but are not limited to:
Technical Focus. The core theme addressed by the workshop is cognitive technology assisted human-centred design conception, analysis, and synthesis; it approaches the design process, and the use of designed structures and artefacts from a cognitive and computational perspective. A particular focus is on the importance of the embodied visuo-spatial thinking involved in problem-solving for the design of objects, artefacts, and people-experiences. Broadly, the key issues being addressed are:
The workshop provides a platform to discuss the cognitive and AI-based computational foundations that would underlie the development of next-generation design systems, design practices, and human-centered assistive frameworks & technologies encompassing the multi-faceted nature of professional design conception, creativity, implementation, and maintenance. We welcome all contributions addressing the workshop themes from formal, cognitive, engineering, empirical, and philosophical perspectives. Select indicative topics include:
