Published on

Talk slides from UbiComp 2008 (Seoul, SK). Presented by Zachary Pousman and Mario Romero. The slides gives a brief technical overview of Tableau Machine, a curious mirror of domestic life and then details the results of three eight-week deployments of TM into homes in Atlanta, GA (USA). The householders found TM curious at first, but began to appreciate its strange and abstract statements and to form intimate attachments to the system over time.
