Artificial Intelligence is rapidly becoming a fundamental part of many of the products and services we use: everything from email to vacuum cleaners to music services. Yet, if there’s one phrase that is sure to give design leaders anxiety and imposter syndrome, it’s “AI.”

This technology is everywhere and more is coming. What is it? How do you design for it? What are the pitfalls? How do you sift through the jargon to know what’s real? How do you hire for it? The short answer is that it’s a rapidly-changing field, and these answers are changing all the time.

The track continually adapts to the needs of the members, but includes e.g.:

Topics will e.g. include:

  • How do you generate AI possibilities for your organization?
  • Practical, useful definitions? What’s hype and what’s reality?
  • So, your boss has asked you to “add some AI in there.” What next? How are AI design processes different from traditional design processes?
  • What is an AI Design skillset? How do you hire, or train staff?
  • How do we collaborate between Design and Data Science?
  • How do we equip our teams to advocate for everyday AI ethics?
  • What are modes of agency? How do we design for them? What is conversational design?
