■Session Theme;
Crafting the Digital: The application of traditional knowledge and techniques in digital construction

An outline of the topic

In the 2020s, the technologies such as learning machines by themselves and mechanisms that mine data by themselves became commonplace. By using those techniques, it may be possible to extract useful essences from “things” or “behaviors”. Hopefully, we would be able to efficiently learn the human wisdom that humans have accumulated so far. Here, I would like to discuss what is possible by digitizing traditional architectural techniques in general, and their applicability based on case studies.

e.g.How to learn; A craftsperson who implicitly learned the behaviour of his master, a new generation who learned the method by teaching methods such as language and pictures, and a search generation who searches videos and source code to find solutions efficiently. Will the generation of true digital natives change further?

e.g.Collaboration: Collaboration between robots and humans is relatively easy to imagine visually, and communication methods and settings will be discussed first. Second, when it comes to collaboration between algorithms and humans, it sounds difficult, but that’s what you do in the search window.

e.g.Objective: Manual customizing and mass production were technical themes to overcome, but as of the 20s, they are not the purpose in themselves. Today’s physical computing and robotics technologies can also be used as an aid tool to improve the quality of human manual labour. Depending on the setting of the purpose of use of digital technology, the emergence of the concept of digital craft is foreseen.

e.g.Problem-raising; If abstraction and structuring are the work of human consciousness, machine learning and mining approaches deal with chaos as it is. If one could make good use of the differences in these methods, good. (tentative)
