As recent scholars have noted, there is little discourse amongst the HCI, interaction design, and UX communities on topics of AI and their relationship to design practice, a gap this workshop aims to address. Bringing together practitioners and researchers from a variety of backgrounds, this workshop sets out three goals:
- Identify case studies and projects at the intersection of HCI and AI, highlighting their ethical dimensions
- Identify the chief challenges to HCI and AI collaborations and strategies to address them
- Foster a community for continued discourse and development on the intersections between AI Ethics, social computing, and design.
Call for Position Papers
Submit by email (daria.a.loi [at] intel.com) a short (1-2 page) position paper that includes any of the following:
- A description of a current project on the topic of AI, highlighting its ethical dimensions and relationship to interaction design practice
- A response to any of the following open questions:
- What might processes for codesigning AI futures look like?
- How might we measure and evaluate the impact of such processes, especially given the variable temporalities at play (e.g. user interaction stories and touchpoints; product development and releases; news and PR cycles; economic forecasting/labor earnings; legal/regulatory processes; professional/career timelines; etc.)?
- What are design practitioners’ roles and responsibilities in this complex and challenging context of designing AI futures?
- How might sustainable business models inform technological development in the context of AI futures?
- What role should co-design play in the development of AI standards?
- How might we ensure that future AI designers and developers are grounded in human-centric values?
- A discussion of an emergent ethical issue around AI Ethics not covered above, and its relationship to interaction design practice.
