This research seminar is focused on the the role of values in human perception and in Information System Design. The seminar will start out with an overview of what values are and gives an outline of a value ontology. Several IT related projects are then discussed of how values can play out and be used as constructs in IT design. An intensive 2-day seminar then rounds up the course where Alva Noe's book on "Action in Perception" is studied. The book's main hypotheses are discussed in relation to what they mean for value philosophy.

The learning outcomes of this seminar are
- an understanding of our current knowledge on human perception, the role of value therein
- an understanding of how values should drive humans' role vis-a-vis machines (artificial intelligence)
Ph.D. students are required to attend all sessions of this seminar.
Participants are required to read Noe, A. (2005). Action In Perception. Cambridge: MIT Press and present one chapter of it. Ph.D work is critically discussed.
The quality of the material presented, attendance and participation in the discussion are the basis for grading in this course.
