Workshop: How can design researchers drive AI innovation in product design?
Let’s explore what we mean by AI and how our research informs and drives its success. As professional researchers we rarely, if ever, can discuss and apply new research methods without risk of commercial impact. To address this, the workshop is about creating a safe space for researchers to reflect about the methods we are currently using. We will work in groups on case studies and experiment with applying a general framework of data gathering whether it is quantitative, qualitative and product-based methods to illustrate connections to AI.
