Design: Generative Agents as Augmentative and Iterative Collaborators

The quantum leap occurs when we combine quantitative advances in autonomous technology with qualitative insights from the humanities via cyclical interdisciplinary work.

If we've learned anything in ten years of data science, it's that, moving forward, it's all interdisciplinary work, even when the cycle is between humans and machines. Autonomous agents are collaborators too.

Regardless of the generative modality, encouraging consensus from sensors to makers to sense-makers, we advance the state of the art when technology is, at once, augmentative, collaborative, and iterative.
