Delft Design Stories
Out of the Blue #26: Conversations on Design & AIWe have a fun one for you this time. Recently, our colleague Eric Gu hosted three Delft Design researchers in a conversation on design and AI. Alessandro Bozzon, Maria Luce Lupetti and Kars Alfrink talked about the needs and challenges of designing AI. About the role of the designer in its development and how the design practice itself can change through the relationship with AI.
Please enjoy this second bonus episode of season 3. And yes, we will get back to our topic of design and health soon for the next episode, promise. We just couldn’t let this one slip past.

Out of the Blue #24: Clashing Disciplines in Healthcare - Richard GoossensA design researcher and a doctor sit together for a coffee in a hospital café. They discuss and draw on a napkin what a joined education programme for designers and medical students could look like. What if doctors understood design for healthcare, and designers the healthcare world?
Out of the Blue #25 - International students of Delft Design – Yuka & JackIt’s been a long and well-deserved summer break. Before we headed off, we had a lovely chat with two international student editors of IDE. Yuka & Jack already share their experiences as international students as student editors on the IDE website. For this bonus episode, they talk with Ianus and Producer Marc about work-life balance, what’s it like studying Delft Design and much more. Enjoy! We will be back with our final episode on design & health soon.
Collaborations by designAddressing the complex challenges of today and tomorrow requires many actors, perspectives and disciplines. But forming effective and mutually beneficial collaborations can be challenging. Designing with Delft aims to facilitate this process, bringing researchers and educators from the university together with innovators from organisations to identify common goals, define a shared vision and develop concrete plans for collaborations.
From bottled water to doctorMost people, according to PhD candidate Mirjam Visser, say they want to shop sustainably but few consumers actually purchase the most environmentally-friendly option when shopping. For her thesis research, she set out to understand why some consumers will buy green options while others won’t - and how to encourage people to make more sustainable choices.
Handling stress: using wearable technology to help people with PTSDThe obvious triggers of stress are all around us: pressing deadlines at work, children not sleeping through the night, a leaking roof. But sometimes it's smaller things, certain locations or specific times of day, that increase our stress levels. Understanding those triggers using wearable technology, with a focus on people who experience a lot of stress - people with PTSD - was the topic of Xueliang Li’s PhD research.
