The Library Repository Revamped

The TU Delft Repository is a database full of information. Students and researchers publish their research there and you can browse around for knowledge and inspiration. But is the Repository still up to date? Is it easily searchable and can you add all relevant information? It could be better, according to Ashley Hemerik, master's student at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. She offers her proposal.

Delft design method maps a route through the confusion for cancer patients

Delft design method maps a route through the confusion for cancer patients

Cancer patients can often find it difficult to maintain a good overview of their situation. This is why Ingeborg Griffioen, a Delft industrial designer, developed the Metro Mapping design method for patients and care providers, to enable them to reach better shared decisions about treatment. Experts in design engineering from TU Delft are now joining forces with medical professionals and researchers from Erasmus MC and the LUMC and the Panton design agency to further develop and apply Griffioen’s method in the Netherlands, Denmark and Spain.

Out of the Blue #26: Conversations on Design & AI

We 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.
