The workshop brought together HCI researchers, designers, and practitioners to explore how to study and design (with) AI agents from a more-than-human design perspective. Through design activities, we experimented with Thing Ethnography (Giaccardi et al. 2016, Giaccardi, 2020) and Material Speculations (Wakkary et al. 2015), as a starting point to map and possibly integrate emergent methodologies for more-than-human design, and align them with third-wave HCI. The workshop was conducted in four sessions across different regions in the world, and had about 35 participants. We explored AI agents from a more-than-human design perspective along three themes.
