Title: Envision Possibilities: An exploratory workshop on speculative design with AI

Coordinator: Hande Ayanoglu, Filipa Alves y Eduardo Gonçalves

Day: 30 november

Duration: 15:00 to 18:00 h.

Participants: Maximum 25 participants


In this seminar, participants will be introduced to the basic principles of speculative design and the potential of AI as a creative catalyst. Using a combination of AI tools (ChatGPT, Dall-E, Midjourney, Dream, etc.) we will collaboratively develop speculative scenarios, exploring the challenges posed to human activities by the expected future conditions of external environments. We will begin by framing possible future problems and draw inspiration from existing solutions. In the conceptualisation phase, we will continue with an iterative process to develop and validate ideas for product concepts, which will be discussed and evaluated. We will adopt an exploratory and experimental approach, focusing on the use of AI tools during the design process. The seminar will end with short presentations of the proposed solutions and a general discussion.

Materials: ideally, participants should bring their own laptops.
