The aim of the project is to develop an experimental approach and collaborate on the definition of a new educational module suitable to be applied in multidisciplinary environments that integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Data Visualization (DV) in Design curricula. All the knowledge generated will be documented into an online toolkit containing AI/ML/DV tools, resources and methodologies accessible by an audience of design teachers and students with a training background in different design areas.

Instructions: Using elastic bands on the Matrix Plot we provide you (you can find them in your tote bag bag) to answer. Each color of elastic represents a disciplinary field, see below the legend.
Remember to comment and motivate in public your perspective while doing the exercise. IMPORTANT: THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWER!
(*) We encourage you to keep your matrix plots on the table and over the course of the workshop days to change the position and size of the elastic bands if you feel your perspective has changed!
a) Elastic Bands
b) Matrix Plot
