Amaresh Chakrabarti - Towards an Integrated Model of Design4 July 2012, posted by email@example.com (Seminars)
Abstract: The talk discusses a model called SAP PhIRE. This model was originally created to model causality and explain how systems work. However, as it developed it proved possible to integrate many current models. This research has provided insights into how current ways of designing might be improved and, in particular, it has supported the development of new methods for supporting biomimetic ideation and creativity.
The talk will also touch on other research in the IdeasLab at the Indian Institute of Science including knowledge management, ecodesign, virtual reality for assembly, and design for emotions.
