Dave Murray-Rust on Human-Machine Inter-Agencies

About This Webinar

In this talk, visiting researcher Dave Murray-Rust will look at some of the ways that design and HCI come together to make sense of technological futures.

Mediating between people and technology is central to making complex systems transparent in a deep sense, bringing together systems thinking with direct experience. Dave will discuss several studies that offer ways to explore this terrain, through design, play and prototyping. He is particularly interested in how the agency shifts between designers, objects and participants, and sees open experiences as central to understanding emerging infrastructures such as blockchains and IoT networks.

Senior Lecturer in Design Informatics, University of Edinburgh
Dave Murray-Rust is a Senior Lecturer in Design Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. He has a MEng in Information Systems (Cambridge), MSc in Informatics (Edinburgh) and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence and Music (Edinburgh). His work is concerned with ways that people, data and things interact. Current research questions include: How can we understand the "social machines" – large-scale human-computer collective systems – that are a manifestation of the algorithmically mediated society that we are heading towards? How can we ensure that there is space for people within computational systems, preserving privacy, choice, identity and humanity while making use of possibilities of computational coordination and personal data? How can we work with things that have an increasing sense of agency, from sensing to responding to shaping the world around them? In practice, this relates to: IoT, personal data, human data interaction, physical computing and manifesting data.
