EDDI, a conversational AI developed by herbst. Design, boasts content expertise, a quirky personality, and the ability to dynamically configure spaces. This experimental installation explores new work environments. Our premise: Today's workspaces may seem diverse, but their flexibility is limited. To support agile teamwork, we need dynamic, networked structures.
The Cognizant Workspace goes beyond traditional approaches, with EDDI connecting people, space and technology to create an adaptive environment. Unlike typical activity-based strategies, EDDI intelligently adapts our workspace to anticipate and meet human needs. It's not just about physical adaptations, it's about understanding and anticipating interactive patterns.
The Cognizant Workspace is less an answer rather than a provocative question: How do we define workspace in an era of technological advances? How will AI reshape our notions of productivity, collaboration, and human interaction?
