Morning Keynote Speech

Prof. Brygg Ullmer (Clemson University, USA)

Toward diverse, heterogeneous cyberphysical interfaces that generalize compositionally


Among books, we have grown accustomed to diversity and heterogeneity in both form and content. For physical editions, they are hardbound, softbound, ringbound, and looseleaf; large and small; occasionally jewel-encrusted; and sometimes incorporating pages with rich mechanics, electronics, and computing. Digital editions of books – whether plaintext or diverse hypermedia variations – richly complement (not strictly replacing) their physical editions. We will discuss efforts toward related ecologies for diverse, heterogeneous computational interfaces with both virtual and physical editions. We will further consider how network externalities, bringing the powers of synergistic exponential growth, might be reached through generalized composition, decomposition, and recomposition. As lenses and prisms, we will use medieval illuminated canon tables, Philips’ 1942 MONIAC, and Apollo mission control; Halasz and Berners-Lee’s Hypertext 1991 presentations; heuristics of Buxton and Dahlberg; and examples from our work and IHCI.


Dr. Brygg Ullmer is a Chair of the Human-Centered Computing (HCC) Division and Professor within the School of Computing at Clemson University, where he also leads the Tangible Visualization group. Ullmer completed his Ph.D. at the MIT Media Laboratory (Tangible Media group) in 2002, where his research focused on tangible user interfaces. He served as an Associate Professor at Louisiana State University, jointly within the CCT and Computer Science. Prior to that, he held a postdoctoral position in the visualization department of the Zuse Institute Berlin, internships at Interval Research (Palo Alto) and Sony CSL (Tokyo), and has been a visiting lecturer at Hong Kong Polytechnic‘s School of Design. His research interests include tangible interfaces, computational genomics (and more broadly, interactive computational STEAM), visualization, and rapid physical and electronic prototyping. He also has a strong interest in computationally mediated art, craft, and design, rooted in the traditions and material expressions of specific regions and cultures.

Afternoon Keynote Speech

Prof. Youngjin Yoo (Case Western Reserve University, USA)

Organizing in the age of Organic Machines


Throughout the history, human design and use tools to augment or replace its innate abilities. In

this short essay, drawing upon the work Bergson and Deleuze, I will try to characterize the emerging socio-technical environments as organic machines and make a few speculative observations on new forms of organizing that is likely to replace digital platforms. A key defining characteristic of organic machines is their unrepeatability. I argue that the emergence of global digital infrastructure, autonomous algorithms, user-generated data and cloud-based computing resources create a condition for unrepeatable run-time computational performativity. I then argue that with the emergence of organic machines, organizations will need to acquire new types of capabilities. I suggest four such capabilities: inferential, predictive, generative, and embodiment capabilities. With these capabilities, firms will be able to identifying both structural and temporal contingencies of user needs, and being able to match precisely such contingencies by algorithmically mobilize material and non-material resources at or near the point of use. I refer to this emerging form of organizing as a meta-hierarchy as it envelops both a platform ecosystem as a quasi-market, with multiple traditional vertically integrated hierarchies and net-enabled Organizations.

Talk Title: Studying the Future of Work


The convergence of 3-D user interface technologies, such as Augmented- and Virtual Reality, AI, and Internet of Things, leads to novel ways of working and fast opportunities to innovate both daily (remote) working life and research-over-distance. In the current timeframe, this is more needed than ever. In this context,  the innovation lab of the Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social sciences (BMS) at the University of Twente provides a platform infrastructure with a plethora of opportunities to experiment and test new paradigms. In this presentation, we will explore these paradigms and demonstrate appealing examples.

Talk Title: Study of Cultural and Technological Aspects of Colour Vision using Deep Learning


Colour is a fundamental feature of human vision system. Colour plays a very important role in human life from its use in the arts to its therapeutic uses. The science of colour is equally interesting and in his book, Kurt Nassau, talks about "fifteen causes of colour" showing its widespread influence in everyday life.

It is natural for Computer Scientists to study colour from an AI perspective given the popularity of AI today. The current revolution can be said to have started with the development of "Deep Learning" which itself was first applied to image processing and colour imagery. However, AI and deep learning have focussed more on image processing and pattern recognition applications than on the study of colour itself.

In today's talk, we look at what colour is and how AI can help gain a better understanding of colour. How do we study the cultural aspects of colour? Why do we perceive certain colours as "positive" and others as "negative"? Why do some colours soothe our feelings? How do we design experiments to deal with such questions?

Finally, we look at the solutions that a study of colour provides us. We look at designing spectacles (eye-glasses) that can improve certain vision impairments such as colour-blindness, tunnel vision caused by glaucoma, the inabilities to focus on objects at certain

distances or in the periphery, etc.
