Abstract
Humans are unique in working collaboratively by sharing and understanding intentions. However, digital collaboration is daunting,especially in creative design life cycles, due to non-linear workflows and lack of micro-alignments coupled with the need for robust
network connectivity. We present a formative study with creatives to identify key themes in conflicts that arise in this space. We introduce CollabColor, an user interface that aids in resolving conflicts for two users synchronously collaborating on a low-touch
creative task. More specifically, given an uncolored line-art on a canvas and a set of reference images from the users as input, we provide non-obtrusive interventions during their real-time collaboration to ensure that the final colorization of the art is coherent, and
all the users’ aligned preferences are incorporated. We believe that CollabColor when enhanced with an intelligent system is an early step towards building automated social planning systems that facilitate and foster cooperative interactions of a population to solve
various global challenges.
