Section Description

Explores the use of data-driven methods to support creative design processes by examining recent work in human computer-interaction, product design, cognitive science, machine learning, graphics, vision, and natural language processing. Students will read and discuss recent papers from these fields, and work in teams on a multi-week project to build data-driven tools to solve real-world design problems. Practical data mining and machine learning knowledge is emphasized: crowdsourcing and web scraping, model and feature selection, parameter tuning.
