Qui êtes-vous ? Comment, dans votre parcours, avez-vous rencontré la question de la recherche-création ? Je ne suis pas une personne, mais un programme pédagogique, créé au sein de Sciences Po par Bruno Latour en 2010. Je m’appelle SPEAP (pour Sciences Po, École des arts politiques). Bien que je n’utilise pas le terme « recherche-création », il me semble que ce qu’il désigne correspond beaucoup à ce que je fais.

From logs and information left in online spaces to data points self-generated by connected devices, digital traces have become more diffused over the past years, prompting an expansion of Human-Centered Design methods. Along with some bigdata approaches, Digital Methods of research – treating the actual content of digital users’ manifestation on-line (i.e. tweets, Instagram pictures, comments) – offer the opportunity to better understand users through their online activities. This paper investigates how Digital Methods can be repurposed as a full-fledged approach for Human-Centered Design. Grafting on the NATURPRADI project – a research aimed at describing the debate raised by the re-vegetation of the city of Paris by analysing Twitter posts – in the paper we will explain how we have identified and described a set of personas characterized by different approaches towards the evolution of the urban nature issue. The final objective of the paper is to provide a first methodological tool created at the intersection of Digital Methods and Human-Centered Design discussing its opportunities and criticalities: Data-driven Personas.

The essay tries to unfold the specificities of some design approaches developed at the SciencesPo médialab. Instead of proposing a generalizable set of methods, this experiential account is a tentative systematization of some techniques that have been tested in the lab. Describing them is like annotating an anthology of thoughts and experiments that revolve around the questions of the ‘public’ and its ‘issues’. The techniques are aimed at exploring the social, technical and political issues, collecting their traces, their descriptions and their partial stories, bringing them into a space where they can be questioned. The different techniques are aligned into two epistemic movements, complementing, supporting and expanding the digital methods traditionally used in the lab. The first movement tries to produce a localized representation of the issue. The second one invites the public to get as close as possible to it.

This paper is part of a research about the visualization of complex systems. More specifically, it focuses on the emerging need for a narrative approach in the understanding of complex networks. A listener plays a key role in any narration process. Likewise, in every visual representation, the observer has the same role: narrators evoke whereas observers interpret through their imaginary. Why should the designer use a narrative mode of thought? Why should he give to the audience a good story more than a sound argument?. To answer these questions, we present the Map of the Future we designed for Wired Italy.

The reconciliation of nature and the urban space is worldwide considered among the smart solutions to a growing range of issues created by urban growth. But there is no agreement on the imaginaries and technical practices that should be included into the new urban nature. To address the specific case of the city Paris and its big re-naturation project, to observe, monitor and, eventually, produce elements of reflections for future urban policies, in the NATURPRADI project has been conducted a Digital Methods campaign. It is aimed at mapping the symbolic and material elements of the urban nature debate by asking specific research questions: Which images, discourses and practices narrate urban nature? by whom and what are they sustained?

In relation to the events of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the European Commission requested EFSA to identify the drivers for occasional spillover event of Ebola virus, i.e. the transmission from animals to humans. As part of this work SciencesPo was contracted by EFSA to perform an analysis to visualise and communicate the drivers for spillover of Ebola virus. Based on information available in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, a set of drivers for spillover of infectious diseases was identified and a set of scientific studies was used to structure a corpus of relevant arguments. This corpus was used to analyse the driver network and visualise the driver behaviour. The analysis led to the identification of 40 drivers, connected through 142 linkages. The visualisation of the driver network showed that central drivers involved in spillover are 'Hunting', 'Deforestation/forest fragmentation', and 'Demographic changes of wildlife'. The most frequent driver links identified were 'Deforestation/forest fragmentation' leading to 'Ecosystem changes' and 'Livelihoods resilience' leading to 'Hunting'. Different publication biases may affect this methodology, therefore the findings reported should be interpreted as a representation of the current view of the scientific community on Ebola virus spillover, rather than a comprehensive analysis of drivers of spillover. The methodology used in this report demonstrates a more structured and transparent approach to analysing drivers for infectious diseases. Such visualisations help in apprehending and analysing the whole system, which is complex in nature since it involves bio-ecological, technical, political and socio-economic aspects. Furthermore the understanding of environmental, epidemiological and social factors that lead to such an outbreak may help to prevent future ones.

From logs and information left in online spaces to data points self-generated by connected devices, digital traces have become more and more diffused over the past years. Along with some big-data approaches, Digital Methods of research - treating the actual content of users’ manifestation online (i.e. tweets, Instagram pictures, comments) - offer the opportunity to better understand people and behaviors through their online activities. This paper investigates how Digital Methods can be repurposed as a full-fledged approach for the Service Design practice, by offering a method to outline service design frameworks from a corpus of web data. This quantitative methods, in combination with the traditional qualitative approaches, leverage the continuous exchange of information that is happening in the digital space and suggest the possibility to automate parts of the data collection and analysis processes in support of service design activities. Grafting on several case studies - we will explain how Digital Methods could be used to identify and describe a set of personas by extracting and interpreting data from their online activities, and we will inquire into the application of the same methodological approach to map other frameworks - such as experience journeys or system maps - that are critical to Service Design.

In his new book, ''An inquiry into modes of existence - Anthropology of the Moderns'', Bruno Latour is bringing together the whole argument that has been, so far, dispersed among many books, articles and fieldworks. The result of a twenty five years inquiry, it offers a positive version to the question raised, only negatively, with the publication, in 1991, of ''We have never been modern'': if ''we'' have never been modern, then what have ''we'' been? From what sort of values should ''we'' inherit? In order to answer this question, Latour has developed a research protocol very different from the actor-network theory with which his name is now associated. The question is no longer only to define ''associations'' and to follow networks in order to redefine the notion of ''society'' and ''social'' but to follow the different types of connectors that provide those networks with their specific tonalities. Those modes of extension, or modes of existence, account for the many differences between law, science, politics, and so on. This systematic effort for building a new philosophical anthropology offers a completely different view of what the ''Moderns'' have been and thus a very different basis for opening a comparative anthropology with the other collectives - at the time when they all have to cope with ecological crisis. Thanks to a European research council grant, the printed book is associated with an original purpose-built digital platform along with a series of workshops, allowing for the inquiry summed up in the book to be pursued by interested readers who act as co-inquirers and co-authors of the final results. This project help readers to better understand what led Latour to his multiple and apparently disconnected topics and see how the symmetric anthropology he had begun forty years ago can come to fruition. At CBS In Copenhagen, the AIME platform will be presented by the team of scholars and designers who have developed it.

Earth's climate is changing. Slowly but inexorably. As determined by the latest IPCC Assessment Report (2014), the actions so far to reduce greenhouse emissions are insufficient and the first impacts of global warming are beginning to show. Like it or not, our collective life will have to adapt to its changing environment and the trade-offs will not be easy or painless. This awareness is prompting the emergence of debates around the world about how best to adapt to a changing climate.
