Phd Research on Evolutionary Design for Online Virtual Environments
- I'm currently organising a proposal for a Phd research project
regarding the use of evolutionary design for virtual online
This proposal follows my MA Communication Design
project/dissertation "trans-kp | regenerative online interface".
"trans_kp" is an experimental online interface that uses
evolutionary and feedback procedures, in order to explore new
forms of interaction between users and users, users and data.
The initial design challenges were to identify principles in new
science (complexity theory, dynamical living systems, cognitive
sciences, and computational science) that could unfold new
conceptual and structural development for online interfaces.
Because of the wide range of new science, this study was
divided into four stages: first, an overview of some relevant
principles of complexity theory and dynamical living systems `per
si'; second, an introduction to computational evolutionary
systems that use these related principles to create design
models; third, a perspective of the internet through both
conceptual and computational approaches; fourth, development
of some conceptions that would be used on the "trans-kp"
interface, the data driven form model and the hyper navigation
At the moment I am looking for partners, research associates or
advisers, sponsorships or funding, that could help me putting
this research further into a Phd .
I'm also trying to select a small group of Universities
(school/departments) to approach with my proposal, since it's
essential to develop this project in association with a course that
suits the nature of it.
So, if you think that you might be interested to join me, or if you
have any information that might be useful.
Or if you would like to discuss this project/subject further,
opening a poll of discussion, please let me know.
