title Computational Pragmatism - Computational design as pragmatist tools for the age of the Anthropocene
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 487-496
summary The age of Anthropocene describes a geological epoch wherein human action is recognised as a global-scale geophysical force that is reaping devastating consequences for the natural environment. What the Anthropocene and pragmatist thinking share is an understanding of the coevolution of life and the planet (in pragmatism's terminology human-environment relations) through a deeply systemic view. This paper outlines how core methods and theories currently engaged under the rubric of computational design can also be understood to align to key tenets of pragmatism. In so doing, the question this raises is how more recent advancements in computation that include so-called Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in design might operationalise distributed, shared, and significantly, interactional notions of systemic agency? The argument put forward here is that a neo-pragmatist perspective of computational design must fundamentally engage AI as the age of the Anthropocene necessitates a relinquishing of the privileged view of human-only agency and control over systems towards a more dynamic and interactional model.
