Embed code
to two thousands five I have designed
and the realised four hundred cells in
the square meters publicly buildings in
china lot of words and the last the
yeah social media of architecture say
select the one hundred pieces of for
contemporary china architect. And one
of them is and I mean in the most
important in the school of the left the
site design by maybe it's not only we
designed the school but that's not
currently project. So basically we you
to school and even we designed the
curriculum of that the premise cool and
that the current or maybe I'm now
leading to schools inside of my
university one is the college of design
innovation. And one is the sound of
fitness centre of tom's university
which is a joint effort between don't
university in china and all the
university in feel and and the school
is really quite international in the
really exciting and the we teach in
this way in this school this the fab
lab in front of our main gate. And it's
open to to all disciplines and it's
open to all communities in in the trees
there's a lot of introducing happening
and I also we kitchen this wing so on
the apple slide you can see it's a very
famous program control john track. So
in two thousand eleven we start I
gently. So we put one hundred students
into a trend and travelled from china
to function high to helsinki. So it's
basically seven days and the six nights
to trip in that the students have to
finish ten project sponsored by the
companies basically is all about is the
challenges of today and is the students
can from altogether more than thirty
different disciplines and then two
thousand five I create project the
court is obvious because of the time I
mean china is preparing for us the word
expo with the scene of a better city
better life. So I had always thinking
what will be what should be the future
of china what should be the the future
of four a should maybe urbanised racing
is the one of the solution but I think
that the maybe it's not the only
solution so I'm try to explore how
design can be used on at the strategic
level to promote the development and
the rural interactions and now the
project to be calm a and ownership
driving project there's no sound
extreme you can we have some there's
always some problem during this a human
and the computer interaction. and
they're the twelve play a central role.
So we I only one minutes I'd do it
again. So this is that what I see it's
a particular machine that inhabits a
small island called something actually
the islanders in that small it's the
third largest I would try to buy one is
located right in front of shanghai. And
you probably don't know but yeah there
is a pleasant island in for the
bustling shine no contrary shanghai
life in something slowly and yet quite
actively. And there that well jeez
display a central role. Now in that I
would drop of pioneering architects and
designers have decided to open
innovation to explore the initiatives
its inhabitants. But to get it straight
our focus is not that one of these
rather it's the culture that
encompasses these eccentric machines.
So as a facility the hub explores
initiatives regarding design for social
innovation and sustainability to
connect these promising ventures from
the city all the with the countryside.
And vice versa. So come take a look at
the house and besides catching up with
these practises adventures you could
explore the adamant on that quality
innovation innovation too. And we don't
design politics So this is a project
that you from this a short video and
again this then that's not only
designing something tangible but also
we want to design a condo for
interaction between so urban and the
rural so it's a how to design a kind of
a social movement it's a long story in
the you can download this the book from
internet if you scan this the are so I
load up book the quality of the harvest
and acupuncture design approach towards
sustainability to explain these seven
years work. But this is not the this
sea of today. So now I shifted to use
them and topic off or I see beach I was
start from the narratives for for
systems. So we have a knows that the
actually is is in the nature if you
talk about this the there's there's is
is the is the solar system. And the age
of solar system is almost the four
billion years. And is that so and as a
human be if well the whole solar system
as one yeah I think that the age of a
human being more or less it's only one
day but when the human being a existed
it changes its ecosystem. And we can
see that the now the impact of a human
being as everywhere and if if we talk
about the but is a word and me to think
about the dialogue between this human
being and the nature. So the other
several different the kind of
interaction between human being and
then nature the first is that at the
very beginning so people afraid of the
nature so they want to do something to
protect themselves from the engine. So
the people that built the house light
and is a mute the just the case in this
way so you can be safe from this nature
danger and the second is a way is that
the people want to extend is getting
packed into the nature. So people build
the tool was from the lines to the
phones on the highway system. And the
third way is that that we think about
the how to use in nature to take
advantage of the nature. So in this we
people and is that later assistant so
you can have the interaction and if
human being to Butte this artificially
system artificial were to have
introduction with the nature and it to
pick on them and quality of our
culture. So from the city. And the from
this a big scare innovation system. So
this is a this it to john again it's a
irrigation infrastructure built in two
hundred and the fifty six PC in china
and it's do you use today and also you
see that it is a great across the
transportation systems and now it's I
don't know that if it's a great
decoration all it's now become a
problem I'm on this the artificial
system. And is there's a muncie very
unique. It's a computer it's a complex
system. So the cyber systems. And the
cyber system grows quite quickly and
that we know that the internet only
existed to fall. So the studious and
now basically and it's everywhere yeah
and we can not the label without our
mobile phone. So this is the the the
application of a form will buy for for
high not taxi in the in china last
year. So sees application emerges and
introducing is that at the very
beginning nobody believes that it will
become popular if you ask a Mackenzie
to do feasibility studies and is it was
say oh in china because of the taxi
drivers see and not to well educated
most of the and the the not the get
used to the internet is so it takes
years to make such kind of thing hap it
could be the solution but actually as a
matter of fact or within three months
if you go to the city of some high it's
every and now today it's very difficult
to to get the taxi in much are what if
you don't know how to use is well by
application and this is the navigation
system. And it's interesting if you
look at is the navigation system how
this navigation system works. It's a
basically say tell you where to go and
is it okay are you the time and the if
you what should do and then what I
wanted to drivers what ourselves action
we we do this we we do this so we we do
this week. So I have a question. So who
actually makes it this age. And who
executed decisions. So it's a very
interesting question. So if you talk
about this a full system the first
assistant nature the sex scenes that
system human being the so this just an
active issues the system and the cyber
system. So we I think that is the
expiration of four interrelationship
off these four systems is a starting
point awful interesting design then the
second the keywords sustainability this
is the key issue of sustainability is a
balance of nature and the human being
plus artificial were and it's not as a
issue of the us to us doesn't care and
is a us web easier like Mars even
without the we even without the life.
But that human beings we must okay
because we may vanish if you look at
this is the crises are for the daily
and we can see that the kind with the
change and the biodiversity lows and
all of these things is actually it's
that make us intention but not not the
us it doesn't matter host started these
problems and we must and is it because
we need to survive. So we have to think
about how to repair our work before it
the collapse. So there's a kind of a
balance between development and also
that's the environment that capacity.
So I divided these relationship to
three level the one is safety. So the
development where not harm harm the
environmental capacity in the the
second level is the criticality. So
which means that that that you can see
the boundary into the search is the
whole system will collapse. So where we
are and we are here I already see the
boundary of the environmental capacity
ascends to there is a list of the
system. So we can still looks good we
still looks good but for our future and
we have to start a about them but to
move the whole systems for safety. So
we have to think about how to create an
as the ways of the vad them no matter
we believe it or not. And we are have
we are now having problem human beings
are not having problems. So we have to
do something to correct no matter you
use this a waste in treatment all these
the medical treatment. So acupuncture
is this something that the patient
people as they like to like to use. So
what is the restorative of development.
So which means that we need to develop
at the same time and we get pay as a
whole system. So there's a new battery.
So the old value is a very much about
the two fulfil that desire. But not the
new value maybe to think about how to
consume less and a little better and we
need to think about is the new system
larger then I mean to enlarges the
phones in traditional transportation
system and the to make at the Mall at a
at the Boston and then make it the
bigger I don't we need to think about
how to create a to act a native system
which is a more eco friendly and also
for people we need to take new actually
if ask other try nice now talking about
the trying to treat if you ask the
young people but it's not you and it's
big house because and they work for
that. And the now I think that it's
time to think about is the the new
value indicating you actually so did
needs both the top down in action and
also it's important not actually china
has made development of sustainable
development outline into something
assemble. And is this is a the properly
mean top down initiative. I mean asian
countries we are really good at the
long term view and that make a national
strategy. But sometimes these strategy
has some challenges because if we need
people to vote for this kind of
strategies and we need to get the
support the problem is that the
sometimes the signals are too weak and
the sometimes it's that's that's
actually are too slow. And people don't
want to train the want to change. So
this is exactly the for all in the warm
water effect people always say I can't
see and people will say I can see maybe
there's a climate change all but I
don't want to change and that I want to
change. And I don't know how and I know
how I know this is important. And the
maybe and the example they tell us we
should do something in which we but I
don't have triangles. And icon do. So
this is a human nature. But we should
do. So we to think about how to promote
a collective behaviour changes. And
this big corrective we carry changes. I
think that it's related to the
finishing of scale before this K yeah
if we talk about scale. It's about the
individual size but now if we talk
about scale. This new possible scare is
there is a small but the connected
escape the design what the design it
right in in trying to ease the term of
design is stretchy. So this is a new
journal web you launched by going to
university in clapped ways elsevier.
And is the title of the journal is
search shady shady actually is the
chinese term for design of course the
name forced the journal as a journal of
all is on economics and innovations so
it's interdisciplinary journal and I
don't want to talk about the general
but I want to talk about the difference
between strategy and the design. So
sure means setup make means plan. And G
means strategy. And also means
calculation. So if you put this cease
to characters together it means energy
means to set up a general. So there's
suppose longterm planning and also
there's a calculation. So if you if you
think about the kind of today. So
actually we need a strategy and the we
need design a strategy we need to set
up a strategy for a certain purposes.
So all the machine is first on that
strategic a level is about
sustainability. And how to generate a
changing the social change it just to
make a change the laws sustainability.
And in tactical level is about the
transformation how to change an economy
in the tree and the social behaviour so
we to think about how to design a in in
the full new system. And the new system
as I mentioned that should be consume
less and then you better exact big
exact actually so there's one thing is
very important is about is that and the
interface and the patch bond between
the people and the system. So this is a
very ghost already so people sometimes
the only see a small small very small
part of the whole system. And how to
communicate in the right way and how to
create a does the light interface and
the touch points to enable the people
to see the whole system is a challenge
of design and I think that this
disadvantage of for especially for this
aside. So how can design change value
and the behaviour so we'll say that
that we should stick shift the front
design for all that you have to to
design for and actually actually I have
a question. So how many of you. You
like to invest in I am a lot of money
in something which make you feel pain
and I cannot okay not move free raise
your hand how many of you you want to
do such kind of invested okay I see
that the man say no less than like they
say yes because this is my high if you
shoe metaphor it makes you feel pain.
And it makes you to morrow slowly or
difficult. But if people like it why
actually is that deal inside so I think
that it's about the design and the
design. And the the high few shoe
matter for it's me that how to design a
desire to give up some design it
occurred Ada feedback as a reward no
matter is beauty nomad is sexy no
matter is self satisfaction. And the
way people get back to this the
physical return give up this the
physical process of physical comparable
this and then exchanges sense it might
be return. So in this way I think that
it's about a matter for if we want to
generate a behaviour change in that
this is the ways of thinking a for
design. And we always say that the
design is about the problem solving. So
where are the problems there is a need
for design. So here. I need to expand
the evolution of design. So that if you
look on the design if I talk about the
comedy change talk about the
sustainability the big issue as that
the traditional design it for instant
design not object design table design a
cop this kind of us got a skill and
know how that is very difficult to
fulfil is the target if you look at the
design. So design start from the
croatian and the design of products for
actually so this is a where a modern
design welcome contemporary design
started to record is on one point zero
and the design two point zero and then
later is is I expounded the from
material to immaterial from product
that to service front to into thinking
from a a factor strategy and the from
object to system it's greatly expanded
but do it's proposal already did. So
typical logical design is okay so this
is the best solution. And tried to
except it. This is a typical logical
design but the sometimes if is that
business leaders there and is a you
need to think about I usually think
about how can I do that and eventually.
So into silence fourteen last the yeah
don't university I organised a
conference. So a group of people is
that come friends week after this
conference in the in T up in the tea
ceremony of my office and they start to
start it up very nice discussion and
the we note that design X take them in
the these people including a dull
moment can freedom and myself peter
yeah and and Apache Brittany and that
you can download actually this design X
a statement from the website what the
design X and the we think about the
design data base on that real what the
challenges such as climate change
hell's education Lulu development and
all of these issues are complex and
it's multi disciplinary combining
creativity business and technology
together to involve complex system and
the stakeholders then issues and all of
these scenes is about relation no it's
is systemic thinking to connect the
nature human and are difficult
artificial word and it's about as a new
active isn't it Sandra printers read
the car yeah proposing solutions and
implementing solution. So I think that
the for the COCC the good news. So not
only design is it's a secret eight the
creative solutions but they are
involved in solution solving and the
sustainability is that design next
issue. So the key issue about the
sustainability is how to redesign the
relation added oh for human beings
major cyber systems and artificial
system then I went to college. So what
is the interaction design oh oh you may
look at interaction design you is all
these are the oh great one. So unix
more for oh a one hundred percent oh
precious thing. right into the
university the but the semester them at
the table take the course a little bit
all of these are the result of a lot of
the semester. Um So it's a very much
technology job but I will explain
another example of interaction design
actually it comes from my project to
develop artists as I've mentioned it's
a seven years design research
initiatives so when we started the
project in the village of fort Tommy
either nobody I mean of course I mean
they talk about design in the in the
village it for us we have a list of for
the villages we are ministering to
people a group of researchers they want
to do something. And so hot but we need
to them to support us because adam with
the goal is not to to do some research
and publish on papers some journals
published papers on journals but more
important decision is to look at the
two people accountable prototype awful
future china sustainable development to
try to explore also discover the value
of a little ways of living and the
producing. So we have to be say to do
something in the long term. So them in
church has to become an issue and is a
very typical activity and the we often
do it in the community so it's a
committed it's a community photo shoot.
So we put the pictures all for all of
you the studies I mean in the public
space. So we invited the villages to
visitors of photo you and if these saw
the picture and they can take it back.
So that's the end of the specie all of
the pictures I've gone. So in this way
we create a a a kind for interaction
without in the technology. So it's
about how to change the behaviour how
the changes the relationship. So I
think that this interaction design is
not about the technology. It's not only
about technology what technology to
play a very important bill moderator
loaded if you spoke design interactions
and he mentioning his book that the
mouse and the text all and if they are
the two most important the saying to
create is ever a first introduction
design. But the look at it today. So
when computers are connected and when
computers to become more buy in the
when computers become invisible and the
when computers they start to see so I
would say that that I knew an of for
human computer interaction is calm and
this new error of the human computer
interaction is intelligent that cyber
human interaction it's not about is the
communication with the individual
computer. I'm even like especially not
for a desktop or on the interface it's
talk about how to interact with the
whole system. So that's the question
would be how can this new CHI design
can enable sustainability how to create
the links and the for me I think that
there's a cyber systems they're good at
handling complexity they're good at
handling ambiguity and uncertainty and
the cyber assistance can be used to to
enable transparency for and the we
don't know that if there's a climate
change or not the but the slow this we
is the cyber system and that is say
senses and as they can detect the what
happened and that they can screw this
big better and the colour computation
and that they can visualise. So
situation awful today and also I think
that there's a system can be used to
enable synergy. And how to connect the
people to take a kind of action. So you
look at this this before I mean people
see have different a mindset they had
if different ways of thinking and they
look even I mean the the big topic like
sustainability in different ways. But
now I think that the it's a little
pricey of course I mean now I but I
think that the sometimes being all the
two save ourself and we need to pack a
kind of a collaboration cave in
actually and the still in this way I
think that the cyber assistant can do a
lot. So if we talk about this this a
new cyber fuming interesting design. So
is about is the redesign and the man
you do the relation that idea and the
interaction between the cyber system
and if you make comment being towards
sustainability in the for me also I
think that the exciting scene is that
that it's a big economy and economy
related to some IB is a big a colour
economy. So the last issue I last issue
I want to address is about something
big down what I mentioned before and I
have a question is that how intelligent
should do the cyber system P this is a
possible it is not the possible
scenario is the imagining scenario. So
we use this smart life a smart the city
was smart doors initiatives and the we
eight a kind of a you learning and the
U housing and you shopping everything I
mean it will say that that this low by
experience basically and everywhere is
based on this mobile experience of
course is a big economy and I'll amend
also see I know how they benefited from
the this kind of initiatives. But
what's the relationship between this
kind of like trends and the
sustainability. So there's a possible
since scenario is that this a cyber
systems see not only I mean uses the
latest the technology to make our life
convenient. And the smart but also they
can help to understand what is the
situation of our nature and others and
when these two system can be combined
to guys I think that the yeah the
possible scenario is that the the
computers the cyber system and they
detected that this is the situation of
the hells of C nature system and that
they automatically. So you can control
the artificial system the get signals
and the control adjusted these
artificial system and to be she left
the whole system is in safety
situation. So this should be I think
that this should be possibility all the
nexus there off this a smart errors
initiatives but there is a danger at
the looks and it sounds good but
there's there's a danger. I was it what
have they can sing and act when I
mentioned smashing is a if actually if
the trees in amazon. They can sink and
how can they you see a future how can
they escape. This situation which is a
front endanger the better solution is
get a without human being and so the
same logic and for the lots of animals.
But if the cyber system can sink
artificial intelligence is artificial
intelligence if they can see maybe they
also have the same conclusion but maybe
not yeah and they might yeah that's two
crates and I say that is a a list of
the what the maybe they don't need the
Q maybe if they talk about the
sustainable issue get rid of human
being would be the best solution. But
for the computer systems the cyber
system maybe they need us to create
them then the question is who are the
law in a whole other tools imagines
that for safety. So people are creating
disciple system and we think that the
weeping disciple system for ourself
other cyber system blessings that okay
these are all the slaves human being is
the slaves. So I can see the is a
politics I knew politics between if you
maybe in and there are artificial
intelligence I persisted we create
before we only talk about the politics
inside a for human be you talk about
the how to design the religion analogy
a few inside of you would be so this is
the social part but now with this the
development of the technology and we
like to think about how to talk with a
sigh persisted in politics this is a
new top existing you charge I don't
have any solution but I see this
possibilities. So what we should do as
I mentioned very beginning so he
basically I always say that the you are
really genius of the word the best in
the trees and the base the scientist
the base the student this academic year
what we should do. I think that the we
not only need to focus on this decent
traditional. I mean quite topic and
especially the mainstream today is
about the how to design visible by
system we to think something big and it
is something big is about our future.
Thank you very much. right. That's
great that you very much. Um we forgot
to mention before you started speaking
that if you'd like to ask questions of
the speaker please write them down on
one of the cards that the students are
passing around just raise your hand
bring a card you and then those will
come for and will sort through them and
ask the speaker. So please start doing
that in the meantime. I think I have a
question for you. And in your view. So
you mentioned about a lot of space else
things from east and easy I why chinese
design and what you think is the main
difference between the less the study
design and it's to study design
especially also socially innovation and
sustainable Okay okay thank you
actually for me. So if you talk about
the eastern design. And western design
some talk awful that isn't designed
with tinted on actually out overlap
design the design and design is a kind
of a common as sinful human be and
design is about problem solving. And
the design is about how to change the
current situation was a better but the
one and in china people expression a I
mean I I mean in china I was say that
issue always think about a few design
or in trying to design in if you look
at the time you design from conference
and from this publications in the from
the fact is trying designed almost the
likes that you put some jargon for
instance and mean as a decoration
Gilmore by for right and it's about the
same at the single level. But the and
the for me now the new opportunity of a
should design forms in trying to design
is the challenges. And the problems.
We're now facing today. So for me what
is chinese design trying to design is
beyond as a single stuff find you
design is about the how to connect that
is designed sinking design no hard
design as a ways of thinking to china's
big challenges the real what the
challenges of china of Asia today and
we are lucky because in china we have
more problems I have ever faster I and
how to take the bond is the entity
behind it is developing to this
connected with that "'cause" I think I
think that this this would be the great
ever of china a sure making design. And
Here's one from the audience can
sustainable design and capitalism
coexist. And if so how if not which one
is that's a put a question yeah and the
I would say that the if you really want
to generate a change I mentioned is
that sustainability will be the next
big is the economy. So if you want to
save the world. We have to use the most
relevant the tool. We now have a
political is one of them that that
that's a political system is one of
them. And at the same time I would say
that the that the business is another
one. So how to design restorative
economy which animation is a big a
business Paul sustainability and I
would see that as these two scenes
actually I have to be combined to get
okay I have another question from the
floor Howard your system col foresight
sizes right is that not really we in
the job collapsing yeah okay so I have
to have two observations O one is that
the and we cannot the close all I and
to say that that we are now okay and
the we are safe there's no danger. And
the badges there is here and the second
of commons even actually that the our
activity is not young this cuts
capacity of the environment we can also
do something which is based on that
consume less and that lee better. And
this this is always say that the about
culture. And the eastern culture no
matter Korea Japan china and we all
have this kind of four understand yeah
so how to respect the us and how to
limit our own impact. So this is the
east and ways of thinking and I think
that the the culture issue also make
sense. what this this question asks for
more about that topic then if we want
to change behaviour we need to be
appeal to people's emotions there your
values how do we create empathetic
designs to convince So that's that's
also a very good question and we have a
lot of a lot of thing to do. So this is
a exactly the field of exterior design
and the human and computer in flushing
design and for instance if we have a go
and how to I mean use a lot know how
for instance that you design to create
a to experience which will support the
people to change their behaviour and I
think that this is a lots of a good
example and the I I guess if you go to
the U two in that you can see and and a
work that I cannot remember what which
country but the they just the pen. So
so that's as as as it is the the
keyboard light up at an a staircase.
And then when people walk on this data
and it is the music welcome as I guess
as in a lot of people maybe you have
seen that the example in it at the
beside the state case. So the SSK
later. So at the very beginning
everybody take take the XM late at
night and is then when people find it
at all that's more interesting for
working and then they start to work. So
it's a good example of how it's see I
design can be used to enrich experience
to generate a behaviour change right. I
have another case from the floor you
talked a ball sustainability and he was
a bible yeah and then what do you think
about technology for human flourishing
we'll we'll be human yes a lot of
people criticise a lot about the
channels one maybe policy like in the
yeah I don't know that the that is that
the that the technology sometimes we
should is think about how to use most
the relevant to as I mentioned
acknowledge that business economy and
also the policy in china introducing
awful this someone baby policy is that
actually is now changing. And when we
reach does it go off for population
control and then we change our policy.
And now the introducing that the even
the policy is the now almost the can of
but the the young couples for in the
city and they don't want to have a baby
so no I don't think that that we need
and the technology to solve the
problem. So maybe is a policy and the
culture and the the stuff and others
also I say I would say that the economy
play a very important role because it's
too expensive to raise that kid in the
in the city right so I I don't see that
the technology at least the at the
present is the needed I think right
well the this question maybe also gets
to to a little bit of that about what
how do you plan to track and measure
the impact on people working toward
sustainability how do we how do we
measure which factors are influencing
the change that we do see is that the
policy is the culture is the Yukon this
is the cost of four I yeah I got a
anyway as I mentioned is that I would
say that there's this a cyber system I
mean this develop an awful computing
signs in the actual really can do I'm
not so we have a computer everywhere
and then they can detective the
situation and the more important as you
can see the whole picture actually I in
relation to that I have about the case
charity and you based on the very
intriguing concept of politics between
I was systems and you will be be and
it's kind of unclear to me and to the
floor dead you know how how we can do
the politics we decide systems and I
can be applied them or can we
politically yeah okay. So what do you
think what what can we do we in terms
of politics we decide the system and
when the talk about the support I guess
if the other particles is always about
the co existence right. And imagine
that this up the cyber systems they can
sing they also have their own these and
they have the on future if they can
sink independently they need to think
about the future right and is in what's
the value of human D and we have the
same question. So it's a very good a
starting point for negotiation. So
that's the reason I say that the in
order to achieve a kind of agreement
based on this coexistence and it's a
new kind of of politics will be
created. So we try to be going lately
yeah sooner or later I yeah okay it is
a tough one how to design how how how
should one design a cyber versus for
sustainability starting from
interaction design and human computer
interaction skills that that is what
role does HCI play toward the
development of these systems is it
really a maybe the way to summarise
this is is it really a design problem
or is it a technology problem. And how
do we apply DHCI skills for this this
completes. and for me it's different is
that design issue. And why I say it's a
design issue because the if you look at
the what the ministry of what HCI
societies are to you so we had to use
this wonderful job in our own few
without the seeing the big picture Mike
I'm sorry to say that the most of the
it's you have people that have the they
doing I mean crooning that means the
services of I love of professors and
the that and and and the students. And
the CI doing their own job in a great
but the how to connect to what we are
doing and I would say that the that
actually I community. And is that
really a very important acid for this a
are just scale so if you change it
because not only because you good but
also it because we have to know how if
we expound the from this human computer
interaction to the human cyber
intellectually that's the side with you
may interaction. It's about the system.
And we have a look at the the the cyber
means a whole cycle system entire
interaction with the whole human be so
it's a larger scale social. And the
systemic introduction in the such kind
awful topic at the least that today is
do not to the mainstream for our
society awful high society but it
should be it will be I I I I think that
will be the next mainstream topic of a
crisis idea for the problem of for the
panic it's becoming clear clear and it
clear but the one badges that the yeah
for the problem is that the dangers of
crises become super clear to everybody
maybe we don't have time to change
Thank you very much team of such an
inspiring talk to open our conference
thank you very much. okay it's not I
thank you Thank you very much the side
and now we'd like to introduce you to
the technical program chairs you've
been working tirelessly behind the
scenes let's bring them out into the
open our cory and and one tactile.
Thank here well welcome to still and
tried twenty fifteen doc and I would
like to give you a little preview of
the technical program that we've laid
out for you today we had seven thousand
seven hundred and twenty six authors
submit five thousand two hundred and
seventy five pieces of content the I
twenty fifteen while as you can see
from this map hi twenty fifteen is
truly a global community with others
coming from all over the world. So how
do we actually managed five thousand
plus pieces of technical content that
it instantly well the answer is three D
violent many volunteers in our
community many of them are here today I
like to take a moment to think all of
the people that were involved in this
process. We started off with forty
people who volunteered to be venue
chair if you're one of the menu chairs
the technical program I'd like to ask
you to stand out and remain standing
for a few moments I get a hold your
flies. So silly "'cause" we have a lot
of people to think here as a remain
standing if you will in terms of the
paper notes program which is a huge
part of the technical program we had
twenty six that committee chairs
hundred and ninety associate chairs in
two thousand eight hundred and twenty
two reviewers if you were involved in
organising reviewing for the papers and
notes program please stand up we also
had hundred to associate chairs and
judges. And one thousand four hundred
and six reviewers from all the other
venues that kind if you were involved
in this process please stand out. So
wonderful kind twenty fifteen had four
thousand five hundred and eighty six
people volunteer to review the than
many pieces of content admitted let's
take a moment now technicalities people
for their help so I'm more than five
thousand pieces of content submitted
one thousand four hundred and forty two
pieces were accepted for acceptance
into the conference an important part
of this process was the program
committee meeting that was held thing
on fire university here in Seoul back
in December twenty fourteen two hundred
twenty people to time out of their
daily lives to travel full. And help
make decisions on which papers and
notes to be accepted into the program
what we have all the pieces of content
selected we had the huge task of the
scheduling all these these the content
over fifteen parallel sessions fourteen
daytime timeslot across as these six
days of the conference is is a huge
undertaking and we sincerely thankful
to the scheduling chairs for helping
with this process and now let's not
tell you a little bit about the
technical program welcome to so
especially welcome to come on will be
already most continents and emotions is
tried to excuse another kind of across
things as you can see how the receiver
interesting exciting a technical
problem including a regular people
smoked and so presentation from Joe
knows that's that well please enjoy
your presentation and also we have a
pretty expecting out he wants was the
speech is an also we prepared mostly. C
look I want to talks problem in social
impact lifetime resource but can
practise you already experienced well
bit exciting three components local
shops woke up to a concert you call I
suppose yeah one more thing pretty
exciting use you know that's that's a
slightly delayed but from ten o'clock
ability it exciting video showcase you
pour scroll please go to the post
drawer because the response and usually
or expecting up yours sorry overwhelm
should be a little but don't worry we
can help the several different ways
that you can review the schedule and
the content that's been prepared for
the week is the USB key that you should
have received upon registration as well
as the paper program with some great
mobile labs that have been developed as
well you two channel that showcases the
pretty thin video previews this year we
again have the best of thai awards. So
the top one percent of all submissions
received the best paper award. And the
top five percent of all submission
received an honourable mention award
these papers will be honoured in the
individual sessions and they noted in
your program using these icon this year
I took it upon myself to introduce a
new word for chi twenty fifteen I'm not
sure if Joe fish and and I was in a
gonna continue this for twenty sixteen.
But I call this the almost honourable
mention award and it was awarded to the
top hundred percent of all accepted
papers this main appeared like an email
snafu when I emailed every author the
conference and told them they won an
honourable mention the word. But in
reality if you are not there have been
accepted paper noted this conference
you are are already among the top
twenty three percent of accepted
submissions and you deserve recognition
as well. But let's not stop there we
again have the people's choice best
talk a war. So please use the mobile
have to vote for any of the amazing
talks to do here over the next few days
we want to thank you for submitting
content reviewing content and most of
all for attending the conference really
excited with the program that we
prepared for you today we hope you
really enjoy. Thank you. I had in the
Uh_huh oh Oh oh oh Stage your kite
twenty fifteen conference chairs do you
know can and well all oh well come up
the title only fifteen or so thrilled
to see this packed room Thanks for
coming to try to counter fifty yeah
this is the first time conference in
they they recovered yeah this
conference here in Asia it's been five
years in the making we really started
working on it about two years ago. And
it's a culmination of more than seventy
five volunteers on the organising
committee I'd like to ask all of the
conference organising committee to
please and then let this crap thank you
for your contributions oh we also want
to take a moment to think are
supporting sponsors yeah I like yours
also is Samsung you have it sponsors
call also but Microsoft maybe yeah ask
a planet and I'll contributing sponsors
had order there's cargo and disunity
results additional contributing
sponsors face plug and future play and
all these other countries was a single
Sunday morals go energy and and S that
and we also like to thank the friends
of guy for their contributions to make
this conference happen. Thank thank you
all are sponsors I'd like to take a
moment to also think the korean HCI
society have been incredibly hospitable
and helping to make the conference here
happen. They've done on a lot of extra
curricular work they they move their
conference which is normally early in
the year they moved it to the previous
year to make space for chi and have it
be in conjunction with our program
committee meeting they supported the
program committee meeting and have done
a lot of extra logistics work to get
support from the korean government
agencies but just in addition to that I
wanna just take a moment to to think
that we need to see I society both
personally. And yeah on behalf of the
car can thank you very much and I like
to think six cry and his team members
we gotta have it's not gonna be passing
was not going to be possible to have
this kind of conference in korea. And
you know this is to that I like to
introduce a simply is an an example
were for his space Morning it's a great
pleasure to add my welcome on behalf of
a CMS is my first opportunity to attend
a a chi event by my technical areas
really and software systems software
engineering distributed systems
networking but I can tell you I'm
impressed you guys know how to throw a
conference I just wanna spend a minute
talking a little bit about a CM a CM
sponsors high and is a home for sink
high second I is one of the thirty
seven six in the ACM space and yeah
that covers just about all of computing
these special interest group oops range
in in size and in coverage of the
various disciplines. But I want to
really thank the second leadership for
showing innovation and a willingness to
roll the membership to grow the
discipline to support computing from a
very special perspective. PCM
traditional we don't It's a lot of the
let's say authority for forming a
community and developing that community
to the individual six and sick I has
done and especially remarkable job in
promoting its community this is such a
diverse and interesting community I
think it really represents in some
sense the new face of computing which
is gone well beyond its original
domains of of hardware and software to
encompass so many aspects of our
society another aspect that I think is
very important to point out about six
high especially is its willingness to
embrace the entire world a CM is the
largest and oldest international
computing society. And as computing has
bred a CM has bred and I think sink
high as is done an especially wonderful
job engaging with of course places like
Europe US and now Asia and I'm very
proud to to be here and and help thank
the signified leadership for that one
more comment I wanna make I would like
to thank a person who has been another
major force in a CM for for a long time
easy M.'s has a CEO structure its
structure in which the staff work with
the volunteers in supporting this
really this membership volunteer driven
society without the staff we would be
in in in big trouble and RCL for over
seventeen years now john white will be
retiring john has been a tireless
worker for the community john is
himself part of this community use an
ACM fellow. He was a past president of
the ACMO he was the chair of sync plan
one of our thirty seven six but I would
really like to ask you to join me in
thanking john for his years and years
of wonderful service to the ACM in the
community okay I'd like now to
introduce the president of sick I here.
And of air. And ask him to say a few
words. Thank you very much. And enjoy
the conference Thank you Alex thank you
see "'em" for supporting stick I and
being are and on top of sick I I've got
a couple of things so first of all wow
second I has been aiming and being
outside of north America Europe were
brought us perspective and and focusing
on southeast Asia to start this for
many years. And now thanks to Jim blue
and bow and they're wonderful T it
happened. Um that and how did it
happen. Well as of yesterday afternoon
at four PM twenty eight hundred and
thirty eight people register and we
expect this morning we'll hit the three
thousand and look at where we come from
this is really unique most people that
the biggest group is formation never
happened before it try. And then north
America and Europe and there's some
parts of the world where we still have
work to do. So this is what's the world
map looks for the point of view of the
members of quiet this more and and this
at the countries that we come from. And
we cannot read "'em" all but let me
show you and this is surprisingly most
of the the the the largest a group of
people from different countries Corey
RUS united kingdom Japan Germany china
all of them over hundreds and cory I
even eight hundred so we're really
manage thanks to two one ball and their
team to get people together that wanted
to be together for a long time and now
it's happens. Um if you make a world
map this is the part of the world that
we hear cover now. Um it's actually a
very large part of the globe where HEI
is being I taken care of by our
membership. Um and it's good for you as
far as you are new to know that we have
local chapters in big parts of the
world so if you're one of these part
you can join a local chapter if you
want and and find your local peers at
your local colleagues more easily so
sick I has a tradition of recognising
its outstanding members of the people
who have been abroad on the field had
been working in the HCI community for a
long time and I'm not going to to read
the names of the people who yesterday
night at the at the awards dinner were
given their awards. And and this is a
challenge for you because I'm going to
show you a lot of names and pictures
and I would like you to hold your
applause to the end of the list. Um and
please note that's three of of the or
these the the the winners of these
social impact award of the lifetime
achievement award research and lifetime
achieved what practise real have a
location in the programme build when
they were ready able to tell that
story. And then if you browse or search
the program you will find where you can
listen to their stories. So this value
onboard each so Jim whole lifetime
achievement award Susan great life them
practise guy academy eight people
Steven rooster and equal one and then
they honest at once Scott Mckenzie
Sharon of yet I think my machine
refuses to work gets placed on bill for
applying social impact lazy up Avon and
finally say kayak at all okay so let's
think the almighty something went wrong
again the flight slide back. Well since
we are in so since we are and probably
yeah and argued together we have
possibilities to meet to talk about
sick I to talk about things that front
well and think that you would like to
change. So please be aware that there
is a sick right down the whole meeting
actually a lunch on Wednesday and here
is the day that time and here's the
location. And if you are in time you
will have a lunch and we can discuss
things that you would like to change
and be aware in a couple of models
there to new elections for the sake I
actually could have comedy show problem
let's talk about it on Wednesday no I
would like to head over to Jim when
both to actually start the conference
so and we think about height without
completely the first thing we think
about the the what we can do better
than others. And we found that we had
the expert in user experience you did
everything to had to give good
experience Well you just so oh think
that this is about time for us to give
good experience for ourselves I for
you. So we think about that and we a
combine the philosophy I'll be confused
on the and john D and come up with the
concept of the only experience. So what
is weird experience your experience as
that kind of experience that these to
the on come on moments for of good
memories. And with good relations with
your friends and your teachers and the
students. And also it finally full fizz
and develops our lives. So we think
that this is gout good praise to give
you really good experience for chi two
thousand fifteen and you know to do
that become obvious to a conference in
that is crossing. the first part of our
real experience design was to identify
a theme that enforces the the
principles of the HCI community. And
the biggest one we saw was how it see I
deliberately mixes things up we cross
boundaries we cross disciplines and
just always are making connections and
and and pushing the boundaries the
first part of crossings theme then for
the conference is obviously the fact
that we're locating it here the new
region of the world the first time that
cries taken place in asia. And even
though. I try guess you're situated in
Seoul Korea we've deliberately tried to
make this about HCI across Asia soul is
selected as one of of many innovations
centres in this region of the world.
And it could be that the next and tries
an agent will definitely have it in
another another asian country but to
connect with the other asian
communities over the weekend we held
for special symposium that we're
organised by DHCI communities in china
to from Japan and one from the DCN
nations as well. We have today for the
first time like I we have simultaneous
translation going on if you look at the
back of the room there's three
translation to this for translating R
R.'s are speech is to chinese japanese
and korean simultaneously and then
those those will be available Monday
and Thursday and then on Tuesday
Wednesday will also have some social
media translation services into of the
talk rooms throughout the conference
wanna think our translation chairs
rippling all that together But the next
is crossing boundaries and we try to
make the balance between academia and
industry. So we bite many panels and
talks from the industries and for
example there is a panel by or three
big porters in Korea and they wanna be
do re siding panel things in Thursday
eleven thirty and also there are any
factory and company hours or the tours
a range at we no support from the
company S and they use that on Friday
that to include over the chip to a
Samsung innovation centre and trip to
energy display you see all the high
tech display tech and technologies over
there. And but lastly the you can
demoted studio then of course has long
gone about crossing disciplines this
year we pay particular attention to try
to invite more content from the R
community so you'll see in the
interactivity some specially invited
content from digital arts. And what I
think or interactive features point
that you know right up and we've also
try do emphasise the new contributions
from game Q maybe so you'll see a tight
bingo makes a repeat appearance this
year and I invite any of you to add me
to your kite bingo target list. So we
could do selfish together. And we have
a new game to and this one is available
for download just today so downloaded
go to the mobile labs page on the chi
web site and you there you'll find a
link to flash all flash ball is kind of
paparazzi kind of style game where you
will select the target from only among
the people register to play and then go
take their picture. And it keep
repeating and see who gets the most
points from that the game will take
place just one day tomorrow so you have
to be very focused will announce the
winner at the closing plenary session
also solar has for all past. And future
mingle together. So if you just step
outside of the conference venue you if
I'd of really nice old temple that's
another point one temple and also in
insiders conference venue and in the
basement you will find or the
technology triple stores and the
racetracks the most important thing
about a real experience like I is
crossing you and me you and us we
invite you all to take this opportunity
to meet new people cross boundaries and
we think for example that the the
keynote speaker program is a good
indication of the kind of crossings
that are available here you would try
we have presentations from
groundbreaking sciences we have
industry thought leaders we had design
research thought later here and also
probably the world's leading
practitioner and social media
innovation as close a keynote speaker
and most of all we invite you to just
take the opportunity to have a real
experience a cat I had I I offer you
have the same experiences I had a
couple of years all going pie. It's now
this is the time for me to introduce
our and it is is not too convoluted
yeah okay great yeah these doubles yeah
now you guess series the work. So let
me introduce L twenty kilos speaker
dean low young chi the mole is the dean
of the college of design anymore you
you know based on a spongy university
and his current interest is in you know
based on for social innovation and
sustainability and he's gonna talk
about I he's new you mow the initiative
will being a next generation design
ideas in china. okay good morning one
incline morning everybody. It's so nice
to be here to call in front of a three
thousand ingenious and the mic off
today will be hopefully not at the
boring. It's about a call I design and
the sustainability sometimes we say
sustainability is really quite boring.
And the one features off my slides is
there's no colour at all so it's a
black and white first I would be a self
introduction I was an article and then
you all know that from my title and
educator and at the the same time. Um a
activist or so basically if we put all
these things together. So it fits in
the scene of for this quite conference
crossing actually I always look at
myself as a troublemaker I think that
everybody understand though what is the
cross discipline what is me what's the
meaning of four and the discipline what
the meaning of four troublemakers the
basically want to break small. So I I
was an architect to so basically before
