Despite all the hype about AI a lot of us are still struggling to figure out how to design AI enabled products. There is still a big gap between our intent to design intelligent systems and how some of these products turn out. We sometimes forget that it is humans that the technology is interacting with. AI has become a part of our everyday lives and impacts nearly everything we do - how we get our news, how we get from point a to point b, or how we cure diseases.

  • What special challenges does AI present to UX designers, researchers and the rest of the team?
  • What are good uses of AI in products and what are poor uses of it?
  • How do you design an AI-enabled product that real people will want to use?
  • What is the role of the human in interacting with the machine - helping it learn, adapt, perceive?

What You’ll Take Away:
Attendees will learn about trends in artificial intelligence and take away key use cases to look out for in the coming years.

Why It Matters:
Your job--and all aspects of your life-- will be impacted greatly by artificial intelligence in the very near future. Learn how about AI and how it'll work to your benefit.

Thought leaders from Chicago's design community will share their perspectives on the creative challenges and opportunities brought forth in the age of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
