DI Webinar – Elisa Giaccardi, Post-industrial Design @ TU Deflt

Autonomous technology and the paradox of human-centred design
Elisa Giaccardi, Post-industrial Design @ TU Deflt
14 January @ 4pm

Elisa Giaccardi is Professor in Post-industrial Design at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, where she leads the Connected Everyday Lab. From 2018 to 2020, she was also Visiting Professor at the Umeå Institute of Design, Sweden. After pioneering work in metadesign, collaborative and open design processes, her recent research engages with digital things in new ways, with the starting point that contemporary things now hold both perception and possible agency, and thus participate in design and use in ways that previous industrially produced objects could not.

Elisa is director of the MSc Design for Interaction at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. She is also founding member of AiTech, the Delft University of Technology campus-wide initiative for responsible design and engineering of AI systems, and coordinator of the European innovative training network DCODE on designing for/with AI.
