Event description

Description

Join us for the IBM Research "Designing AI for People" 2019 workshop scheduled during the IBM AI Research Week in Cambridge, Massachusetts!


Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a multidisciplinary field focusing on the design of computer technology and the interaction between humans and computers. HCI practitioners create consistent interfaces with predictable behaviors: given an input, the system should always produce the same output. AI systems may break this guideline as they create personalized experiences and can learn over time. From decades of HCI research, we know that inconsistent and unpredictable behaviors can confuse users, erode their confidence, and lead to abandonment of a technology.

In this hands-on tutorial, participants will design an AI-infused product/service using design thinking methods. They will learn to identify and build empathy with their users, articulate and prioritize their needs, design solutions, and evaluate how the incorporation of AI may impact users’ trust in and use of the product/service.

Participants will walk away with a strong understanding of the importance of including end-users in the design process, practical exercises for eliciting user needs, and ways of understanding how to design and evaluate AI-infused systems.
