Cap­ab­il­ity and
Vis­ion Impairment
Study­ing the mutu­al sens­ing and com­bined achieve­ments of people with dif­fer­ent levels of vis­ion, work­ing togeth­er. As well as deep­en­ing our under­stand­ing of cap­ab­il­ity — as it is col­lect­ively accom­plished — this research is dir­ec­ted at inform­ing a role for machine learn­ing in assist­ive tech­no­logy and build­ing assist­ive sys­tems that sup­port rich­er forms of social inter­ac­tion. This work is in col­lab­or­a­tion with Cindy Ben­nett, Rebecca Fiebrink, Katja Hof­mann, Nate Kush­man, Ewa Luger, Cecily Mor­ris­on, Sebasti­an Nowoz­in, Anja Thieme, and Shi­mon Whiteson.

Data, Par­ti­cip­a­tion
and Digit­al Civics
A col­lec­tion of col­lab­or­at­ive pro­jects examin­ing the rela­tion­ships between data, civic life and place mak­ing. Bring­ing these pro­jects togeth­er is a broad focus on the pro­lif­er­a­tion of data and ana­lyt­ics, and how this might enable dif­fer­ent and pos­sibly wider forms of par­ti­cip­a­tion. Research has com­bined exten­ded par­ti­cip­at­ory research and design meth­ods with large-scale, deploy­ments in the wild’. Res­ults have been presen­ted at the 4S annu­al meet­ing and the CHI con­fer­ence, are in press for the Journ­al of Com­puter Sup­por­ted Col­lab­or­at­ive Work and Demon­stra­tions, and led to policy engage­ments (see data​-policy​.info).

Com­pu­ta­tion and Biology
Stud­ies of the bur­geon­ing research in com­pu­ta­tion­al and syn­thet­ic bio­logy, and build­ing tools to sup­port this new hybrid of applied sci­ence. This has been com­pli­men­ted with research into a grass­roots DIY­Bio, as a counter point to main­stream know­ledge mak­ing prac­tices and pro­duc­tion pro­cesses. Res­ults have been presen­ted widely at the CHI con­fer­ence and CAV, pub­lished in Com­pu­ta­tion­al Cul­ture and Nature (online), and led to a pub­licly avail­able mod­el­ling tool used by bio­lo­gists (see BMA).

Intel­li­gence
and Autonomy
Invest­ig­a­tions into intel­li­gence and autonomy. This work has com­bined field stud­ies and design inter­ven­tions to ques­tion the lim­its placed on machine intel­li­gence and autonomy. Through design it aims to invite the pos­sib­il­ity of human-nonhuman rela­tions enlar­ging the capa­cit­ies for being, not entit­ies by them­selves defined by pre­sumed lim­its. Work has been exhib­ited at SIGGRAPH, MOMA NYC, and the Beijing Inter­na­tion­al Design Tri­en­ni­al.

Home Life
Stud­ies of home and fam­ily life, with emphas­is on the rela­tions between social organ­isa­tion and the use of mundane arte­facts includ­ing lists, pho­to­graphs, fridge doors, and clut­ter. Long term field­work has been run along­side design and deploy­ment of pro­to­types and spec­u­lat­ive tech­no­lo­gies, aim­ing to raise fur­ther ques­tions about life at home.

Pro­ject Tokyo is work­ing with people who are blind and par­tially sighted to cre­ate a deeply per­son­al agent. Using AI and com­puter vis­ion, the agent will allow people to build up and tune an under­stand­ing of their sur­round­ings by query­ing the social, phys­ic­al and tex­tu­al envir­on­ment. Under­pin­ning the pro­ject is an ambi­tious research agenda in devel­op­ing state of the art machine learn­ing and inter­ac­tion tech­niques that allow users to more read­ily adapt their sys­tem to their needs.
