More-Than-Human Design and AI – In Conversation with Agents

This workshop explores how to study and design (with) AI agents from a more-than-human design perspective. Submissions due: June 18th, 17:00 CET

We invite you to experiment with thing ethnography and material speculations, as a starting point to map and possibly integrate emergent frameworks and methodologies for more-than-human design. By using conversational agents as a case, we will discuss what a more-than-human approach can offer to the understanding and design of AI systems, and how this aligns with third-wave HCI concerns of networks, infrastructures, and ecologies.

The premier international conference on ethnography in business.

The EPIC2020 theme is SCALE. How can we engage, work across, and reframe scale in a world where bigger, faster, easier, broader are the desired and expected goals? In these times of critical, planet-wide challenges, we invite contributions that address how concepts of scale define the scopes, contexts, and impacts of ethnographic work in creating value in organizations, and in sustaining our global futures.
