Why is it that certain research topics seem relevant than others? How does a topic become important, and who is in a position to make something relevant? Current societal issues and trends, attitudes and opinions may play a contributory role. Emerging technologies embody commitments and biases. These commitments may include the interests of industry, university, university research policies, personal biases or life situations from the designers/researchers working with these technologies themselves.

  • In what way could we still achieve a broader audience?
  • What aspects could not be realised by our project but might be important for future research?
