Frameworks for ACI: Animals as Stakeholders in the Design Process

North, Steve and Mancini, Clara (2016). Frameworks for ACI: Animals as Stakeholders in the Design Process. Interactions, 23(4) pp. 34–36.



Animal-computer interaction (ACI) is an emerging discipline concerned with studying the relationship between animals and technology, designing interactive technology to support animals, and developing methodologies that can enable animals to participate in the design process as legitimate stakeholders. By welcoming animals to the design table, ACI is delineating new frontiers for interaction design. However, if co-designing HCI artifacts is already fraught with misunderstanding, how might ACI researchers hope to design for and with other species? It is this key question that the contributions to this Special Topic on ACI address from different perspectives.
