Essay: Interview with a droid



Writing designfiction enables to think of the future in several perspectives. For me it is another tool to  create futurescapes. Scenarios that demonstrate the power of the present reality and current concerns about the future. “Interview with a droid” is a fictional dialogue handling the questions:

  • What are bots and how deep do they delve into our daily needs and actions?
  • If more work can be done by bots, what does that mean for human working environments?
  • What are the specfic skills of humans and bots?
  • How does a working environment look like that maximizes those skills on both sides?
