2nd International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction

The second International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction (SI) took place  December the 12th in London, hosted by i2 media research at Goldsmiths, University of London.

The workshop's aim, following on the first one last year, was to promote the exchange of scientific experiences in designing symbiotic systems, studying the way in which they affect human behavior and defining the principles for a functional interdependence of humans and machines, making the user an essential, integrated part of the system.

New possibilities are emerging at the confluence between the human and technological realms that can enable new forms of sensing, interaction, and understanding. The workshop made it possible to bring a multidisciplinary team of experts together, creating a community that aims to expand and promote research in SI and incorporate advancements from established areas such as cognitive science, computing, psychology, machine learning and HCI.
