In the digital age, data are being constantly multiplied, and data processing creates a new reality. Will data and new technologies also change the way designers work? Designers focus on problem solving. They are already asking questions and making decisions based on data. What will happen when algorithms start to solve problems more effectively than designers? This situation raises extreme emotions—from fear to admiration.
As part of the lecture, we are going to present a spectrum of emotions and attitudes towards data. We are also going to encourage designers to go beyond the standard practice of working with data and to start treating data as a new design material and artificial intelligence as a new tool. According to Derrick de Kerckhove (1993), "design is the skin that covers technology." We will therefore consider how designers can approach the humanization of artificial intelligence and data. What will be the role and place of design in the era of artificial intelligence? We would like to open a discussion on these issues.
