2019 is the year of Human-Machine Interaction at Pi School
In preparation for next year, we will be hosting Pi School’s upcoming exclusive annual event on the 28th and 29th of September 2018. Two days where brilliant minds will come together to elaborate and expand on human-machine interaction and consider the future of the discipline. We will be looking at the challenges involved, exchanging ideas, examining opportunities and analysing hidden potential in the field.
When Pi School was established in September 2017, we launched our vision of combining human creativity with machine intelligence.
For our next step, we are focusing on the interaction between humans and machines. Human Machine Interaction is a multidisciplinary field with a range of contributions from Human-Computer interaction (HCI), Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and – most important of all for us – Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Interaction Design (including product and service design).
