Workshop on Human-Centred AI Design Methods to Understand “Intelligent Systems Design empowered by Multisensory Experiences with Textiles” has been successfully held in collaboration between our MDes Intelligent Systems Design (ISD) programme and the Royal College of Art, UK (RCA).

Being part of the ISD’s unique “Lab Studies” subject, the workshop aimed to understand human sensory experiences of textile materials and to explore the potential role of human-centred AI in the relationships between physical properties and characteristics and the subjective assessment of materials.

Co-organising the workshop were Leader of the ISD programme and the Lab Studies subject (Intelligent Systems Construction), Prof. Stephen J. Wang, and RCA’s Textile MA tutor, Dr Elif Ozden Yenigun, and Research Associate Ms Lissy Hatfield.

The workshop guided ISD students to brainstorm and develop ideas in groups around human-robot collaboration contributing to textile assessment.

The workshop was planned collaboratively – thanks to RCA’s Textile Circularity Centre’s Postdoc Researcher, Dr Chipp Jansen, AiDLab Research Associate, Mr Zhengtao Ma, and our PhD students Ms Yaqi Z
