Free Elective

Designing Intelligence in Interaction

During this elective we created a web-application to provide dinner suggestions based on generated decision trees. For me the main learning point of this elective is the relation between data input, the chosen methodology and the (relevance of) the generated output.

It gave me a better understanding of the possibilities of machine learning and the challenge of data gathering and cleaning. I discovered new ways to evaluate the machine-generated output, in relation to the chosen context, user and scope. These skills can allow me to create end-user adaptable designs and thereby improve my position as a user-centred designer.
