Design for AI and Cognitive Computing

Come explore how to design for AI and cognitive computing technologies. Don’t worry, computers are not going to take over (at least not for a while), they are actually dumb. Smart designers that play a critical role in how AI systems behave and are used by people. We’ll discuss design examples from consumer and enterprise that might inspire your startup.

Bring your design challenges and experiences for an engaging discussion:
• How AI supplements human capabilities, helps people do things better, and brings delight to their experiences.
• Three components of AI: algorithms, unstructured data/big data, and user experience.
• Designing across the interaction methods of vision, speech, data insights, and analytics.
• Personalization through UX and how solutions evolve as they interact with humans.
• Design considerations for software, hardware, and services.
• Consideration of ethics and privacy.
• Debunking design myths: AI does not really ‘think’ and cannot ‘predict’ the future.
