Guidelines for the

Human factor


The project is an algorithm-based workspace where the robot plays the role of a moderator while humans discuss a relevant topic connected to a real world situation. Under a set of rules for debate, the robot intervenes in the dialogue

by providing real time references and balancing the dialogue between humans.

While the dialogue occurs, the robot is using voice recognition to extract each word and organize it in a process lead by its relevance.

In the middle of the space a hologram functions as a production spot, where the robot, in addition to being the moderator, is also building an archetype of a vessel pot based on what is being discussed. This project proposes new production models that not re-links the human element across all the stages of production while simultaneously transforming production into a new agora for developing social contracts.
