Abstract

In this talk, Giaccardi argues for fundamentally rethinking the ways in which we design. No longer a stabilising process, design must position the crafting of agency as foundational to our understanding of autonomous technologies as was once the notion of function to our understanding of tools. To illuminate this, Giaccardi introduces and discusses examples from healthcare, mobility and sustainability, unpacking how designers might consider what is uniquely human and uniquely artificial in the performance of agency, and how should they attend to the ethics of this co-performance as a decentralised act of design with probabilistic outcomes.
