Over the last decade, many new opportunities have emerged to support creativity and problem-solving in design by finding inspirational materials via the Internet. Online design communities such as those of Behance and Pinterest showcase portfolios and user-made artwork, and they offer support for designers’ day-to-day work to find and collect inspirational material. However, very little […]

Human-Computer Collaboration offers great potential for explorative and creative problem-solving strategies. While previous work in HCI and ML mainly focuses on exploiting either human or machine capabilities, the concept of collaboration suggests work on equal terms to achieve synergy effects. The uncertain nature of creative problems raises new questions regarding the adaptability of systems to […]

This paper proposes a framework for a collaborative designing system from an interaction design perspective. Using the agent-based model from the mixed-initiative interaction framework as a starting point, an ideal interaction scenario in a web design context is described and implications for designing collaborative systems are presented. Previous work on machine learning and artificial intelligence […]

We present preliminary results on computational perception of interactive layouts. Our goal is to algorithmically estimate how users perceive a layout. Potential applications range from automated usability evaluation to computer-generated and adaptive interfaces. Layout perception is challenging, however, because of diverse features, combinatorial complexity, and absence of approaches. We have explored Gestalt laws as parsing […]
