1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence & Design (AIDE 2015)
Design is a fundamental activity in disciplines like engineering and architecture as well as in emerging areas of the social and life sciences.
The need for design rests on an assumption: we can positively improve our personal and social life by choosing how to change the environment in which we live. This approach has been proven successful enough and, as a consequence, the world that we inhabit is increasingly a designed rather than a naturally occurring one. In this sense we could even say that we live an "artificial" world. Design is a fundamental step preceding most of our manipulation activities like manufacturing, production, construction and implementation. Design research aims to develop an understanding of design both as a theory and as an activity, and to produce models that can be used to aid design.
The AIDE workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the interplay between AI and design via the presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art and cutting edge research and developments of material that integrate these two areas.
