Let’s prototype an AI product! In this hands-on session, you’ll imagine and design a concept product powered by machine learning. Explore the new digital interactions emerging from machine learning, and how you can put those interactions to work today.
Your guide is designer Josh Clark, author of Designing for Touch and ambassador of the near future. As we build our prototype together, you’ll learn practical process, technique, and design patterns for designing for machine-generated content and interaction. But you’ll also absorb lasting lessons and perspective for how to design for emerging platforms generally. You will learn new UX techniques for expanding service and brand across fresh-from-the-future technologies like speech, bots, physical interfaces, and artificial intelligence. You’ll leave the day inspired to create — and ready for action.
Along the way, you will learn to:
The workshop blends lecture, conversation, and hands-on design sessions. Lecture portions will introduce new concepts, techniques, and process, and the design sessions will put those ideas to work. Those sessions focus on the UX and product activities that go into creating machine-learning products: researching to identify the right problem and focus source data, presenting data with appropriate confidence and manner, using new prototyping tools to explore new interactions, and exploring the risks and opportunities of giving the machines voice and personality.
The workshop is geared at designers and product owners: UX and interaction designers, UI designers, and product designers or managers. It’s for people who are curious about what’s next for product design, and what the roles and responsibilities are for designers as machines take over aspects of content generation and interaction itself. (Spoiler: there are lots of exciting challenges and opportunities for designers!)
Attendees should bring their laptops, a bright imagination, and a sense of adventure.
