Abstract

Cognitive Systems: Designing Interactions that Think With Us

This talk explores emerging ideas about interaction design in the context of distributed technological, cultural and cognitive systems. Human thinking has always been influenced by technology, and technology is beginning to think for itself. Designed well, new systems will be increasingly able to sense and respond to human behavior in nuanced ways, profoundly influencing our actions and values. I will discuss several recent projects involving embodied and distributed cognition, and conclude with reflections on the role of interaction designers as cognitive agents.
