Sketch Understanding in Design: Overview of Work at the MIT AI Lab

Randall Davis

We have been working on a variety of projects aimed at providing natural forms of interaction with computers, centered primarily around the use of sketch understanding. We argue that sketch understanding is a knowledge-based task, i.e., one that requires various degrees of understanding of the act of sketching, of the domain, and of the task being supported. In the long term we aim to use sketching as part of a design environment in which design rationale capture is a natural and, ideally, almost effortless byproduct of design.
