The meeting brings mutually some of the world's important thinkers on this theme. The hope was that their negotiations, debates and academic commentaries would help identify how HCI can transport this ‘human face' of computing. The occasion made it clear that we need a more widespread set of lenses, tools and methods that put human values Centre point.
