When Everyday Objects Appear to Have a Mind

    Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


    Cristina Zaga will present a joint project from herself and co-researchers Maria Luce Lupetti (TU Delft) and Nazli Cila (University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam) that shows a unique design perspective on creating interactions between humans and artificial agents (ie, everyday objects with robotic qualities, smart products) usually investigated from an engineering point of view. The session aims to discuss the delegation of control to agents in the care context, and tackle how artificial agents enable and empower human autonomy and wellbeing, what the potential pitfalls are, and which intelligence and behaviors are appropriate under which contexts. Through a debate with participants, we aim to generate critical insights about the socio-ethical and practical design implications of developing artificial agents.
