The New Logic of Design: Autonomous Design Tools and Video Game Production

Tuesday, 13. April 2021 - 12:00 to 13:00, Online (Zoom)

Title: The New Logic of Design: Autonomous Design Tools and Video Game Production

Speaker: Stefan Seidel

Abstract: In this lunchtime talk, Stefan speaks about a stream of research that investigates how autonomous design tools shape the nature of design work. These tools generate outcomes with little or no user intervention and produce designs of unprecedented complexity and originality. They fundamentally revamp how organizations will design and innovate in future. Stefan will highlight (1) the relevance of this emergent phenomenon, (2) conceptual lenses to study this phenomenon, and (3) some findings related to the impact of using autonomous design tools on organizing, learning, and creativity. He will use examples from video game production.
