Krzysztof Gajos, "Design and Discrimination"

source: Harvard University   2016年8月31日
The currently prevalent one-size-fits-all approach to designing digital products inadvertently - but inevitably - leads to discrimination by making some people systematically a little more likely to succeed than others. In his lecture, Prof. Krzysztof Gajos will first show how current design practice discriminates against people based on their motor abilities, their ability to perceive color, or their subjective perception of what is aesthetically pleasing. He will then present a Computer Scientist’s approach to this problem: algorithms that automatically personalize design to provide more equitable access to digital resources.
