Human beings have long dreamt of mechanical beings with reflective consciousness. Dreams moved closer to reality moved after World War II, with significant advances in computing power and the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI), defined by pioneer John McCarthy as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”.

In this talk, following the theme of the summit–Designing for Humans–I will focus on the nature of “human” and “humanity”, and consider the different conceptions of those terms in the evolving agenda of contemporary AI by reference to two sister areas of investigation: augmented intelligence” (also called “intelligence amplification”), and “ambient intelligence”. I will reflect on examples from my own work, and consider the potential impact on information architecture as a discipline and field of expertise.
