Workplace design, building for humans and machines

Increasingly, we will work alongside machines in spaces designed not just for people, but also for artificially intelligent occupants. It's already happened in factories, spaceships, and hackerspaces and may be coming to a workplace near you.

Jennifer Magnolfi, designer, architect, and founder of Programmable Habitats, spoke at the re:Work 2014 event about the convergence of human work and machine work. Based on her studies of hacker and makerspaces, and interviews with roboticists, she painted a picture about how the workspaces of the future will be optimized for machines and people to work together.
