Public Computational Media address the problem of computation systems operating in the public realm across diverse stakeholders. Public Computational Media are to computational systems what architectural design is to construction drawing. Public Computational Media operates across disciplines, and places computing into context, focusing on event and actions that occur in the wake of computing activities.
Speculative Robotics seeks to apply approaches from speculative design to robot engineering and deployment. Speculative Robotics understands that the cultural context in which robots operate are not neutral territory, but as active components of the design. By imagining and prototyping robot systems that do strange things, Speculative Robots help imagine a richer and mature robot future.
