I'm a Design Researcher based in Melbourne, Australia. I apply architectural design principles and approaches to enable ethical innovation. Primary areas of focus are artificial intelligence, facial recognition, and biometrics. My work reaches global audiences and highlights the importance of public participation in the quest to ensure that innovation creates tangible benefits for society. My commentary is featured regularly in print media and on television, where I discuss societal risks and opportunities of technology trends.
This talk, in conjunction with a study day on electronic screens, has highlighted various relevant academic studies with regards to government communication by way of various forms of display technologies, ranging from indoor electronic screens to architecturally integrated media facades. This included topics such as visibility and effectiveness, content and expectations from the audience, and the sustainable integration in the urban environment.
The study day was organized as part of research on the social qualities of different display technologies in public space, ranging from information pillars with concrete messages to building-sized media screens with abstract information (in short: media architecture).
