Taxonomies and Ontologies for the Human Experience in Digital Environments

In this Symposium, mediaX brings together a multidisciplinary selection of scientists and researchers studying the human experience in digital environments. Through established frameworks, concept-proving projects, and practical issues, this program will explore how we might better describe the human experience in digital environments.

mediaX 2021 Conference Will Be Held Over 3 Days

This three session conference (July 13, 14 and 15) brings together thought leaders from the Stanford and mediaX member communities to share recent insights on what similarities in curiosity and learning of humans and machines can be assumed or explored.

Changing Patterns of Interaction

Getting computers to do our bidding has always been a bit mysterious to those of us not steeped in machine code, operating systems, and programming. mediaX Distinguished Visiting Scholar Susan Stucky explains why and how that has changed.

Human-Robot Interaction through the Lens of Learning and Control

Machine learning and control theory have made substantial advances in the field of robotics in the past decade. However, there are still many challenges when studying robots interacting with humans. Dorsa Sadigh continues the mediaX webinar series "Thinking Tools for Wicked Problems", and will discuss her insights on this issue.

Haptic Tether for Human Robot Communication

From The Theme SMART OFFICE WORKFLOWS WHAT IF What if we could help mobile robots navigate crowded environments using haptic communication? WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO We set out to explore the use of haptic communication to improve human-mobile robot interaction, especially in crowded environments, such as offices and shopping malls. We developed and […]

Making Noise Intentional: Capturing and Designing Robotic Sonic Expressions

From The Theme SMART OFFICE WORKFLOWS WHAT IF What if we could better understand how robotic sound influences human perceptions and interactions? WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO We set out to develop design heuristics for the sounds that are a byproduct of interactive objects in the technologically advanced workplace of the future. Specifically, we […]
