Liu Lecture: Nadya Peek, Machine Agency: Making Machines that Make
Join us for Liu Lecture with speaker Nadya Peek, Assistant professor at the University of Washington in the Human-Centered Design & Engineering department.
Lecture Title: Machine Agency: Making Machines that Make
Abstract: How can we harness the precision of machines for the creativity of individuals? Digital fabrication tools promise quality production in low volume and are now accessible in maker spaces worldwide. However, the maker context is very different from the historical industrial settings in which digital fabrication was developed. Yet these differences have not led to many changes in contemporary tools. I argue that personal fabrication requires a rethinking of production infrastructure, and in this talk outline a research roadmap for machine agency.
The David H. Liu Memorial Lecture Series in Design at Stanford brings together
incredible minds from a wide variety of disciplines to explore the intersection of
design, technology, art, architecture and science. Past speakers have included Santiago
Calatrava, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda, Ben Fry, Valerie Casey, Janine Benyus, Paola
Antonelli and many others. This lecture series is made possible by the generous support
of Dr. and Mrs. Liu in memory of their son, David, a former graduate student in the
Stanford Graduate Design Program.
