Post-human interaction design, yes, but cautiously

by   Jelle van Dijk, et al.

Post-human design runs the risk of obscuring the fact that AI technology actually imports a Cartesian humanist logic, which subsequently influences how we design and conceive of so-called smart or intelligent objects. This leads to unwanted metaphorical attributions of human qualities to smart objects. Instead, starting from an embodied sensemaking perspective, designers should demand of engineers to radically transform the very structure of AI technology, in order to truly support critical posthuman values of collectivity, relationality and community building.
