CoPDA 2020 - 6th International Workshop on Cultures of Participation in 
the Digital Age: AI for Humans or Humans for AI?

June 9, 2020 - Island of Ischia, Italy

In conjunction with AVI 2020 (




This edition of the CoPDA workshop will be dedicated to discussing the 
current hype about Artificial Intelligence (AI) by contrasting it with 
the objectives pursued by Human-Centered Design (HCD). The workshop will 
establish a forum to provide (at least partial) evidence that the most 
successful AI systems out there today are dependent on teams of humans, 
just as humans depend on these systems to provide insights and perform 
tasks beyond their own capabilities.
More precisely, the workshop will explore the relationship between AI, 
aimed at replacing human beings, and Intelligence Augmentation (IA), 
focused on empowering human beings in their daily life and work. 
Balancing between these two perspectives means changing the research 
paradigm from traditional human-computer interaction, to designing the 
collaboration between humans and computers. This will foster creativity, 
meaningful work, intersubjectivity, and learning, and eventually improve 
the quality of life of individuals. However, a variety of issues and 
ethical problems need to be addressed in this new age – e.g., privacy 
intrusions, massive unemployment, knowledge and competence loss, lack of 
control, autonomous weapons, etc. The workshop organizers encourage 
researchers to submit position papers that will consider these aspects.
In summary, the workshop will aim at discussing the importance of HCD in 
the AI Age by considering several topics including (but not limited to):

- Collective human-centered design

- Collaborative learning

- Meaningful human control

- Distributed cognition

- Tacit knowledge and meaning making

- Multi-dimensional aspects of learning

- Big data and privacy

- Learning analytics

- Human-machine teaming systems

- Explainability of AI-based decisions

- Evaluation of AI-based systems


Topics and Keywords


The workshop will explore specific questions around the relationship 
between AI and HCD, such as:

- Can we identify success stories / inspirational prototypes of systems 
where humans and AI components have created unique opportunities?

- Can we identify failures of AI systems that we can learn from?

- How can we orient further developments considering the differences and 
complementarity between adaptive systems (focus on AI) and adaptable 
systems (focus on HCD)?

- Do the concepts of co-evolution and appropriation of human-machine 
teaming/cooperative systems change in the AI age?

- How do we measure the overall benefits of AI decision-making support?

- Do insights derived from AI systems (e.g., from big data analysis) 
constitute unique contributions that humans are not be able to contribute?

- Will the current understanding of advanced technologies help us better 
understand who we are as human beings and what are our unique abilities?


Cultures of Participation; AI-based system; Human-Centered Design;
