DEA 6660 Intelligent Environments for Everyday Interactions

Instructor: Yixiao Wang

Graduate Level Lecture+Studio

The fast-developing AI and robotics technology have the potential to render our built environment more and more intelligent. What we used to see in sci-fi movies: emotive spaces, swarm architectures, partner-like offices, etc., could, at least partially, come to reality regarding today’s technology. As human-centered researchers and environment designers, we have this exciting opportunity to explore how to design such intelligent environment for everyday human life. This class responds to this opportunity and challenge by designing basic architectural elements such as robot surfaces, which is then used to generate the design of “A Room Alive” informed by human-centered study results.
