An Open Class is to be held at 06:00 PM on thursday 05-05-2022 on Masters in Artificial Intelligence for Architectural Design (Blended learning).

Architects and human–computer interaction (HCI) practitioners think about their design problems. Three types of interface are explored: classical HCI, network interactivity such as context-aware systems, and socio-ecological interfaces. An interface for an architect is a niche that includes the very people who interact with it. In these socio-ecological interfaces, people co-create bubbles of joint awareness where they share highly situated values, experience and knowledge.

This open class will be held in English.
