Being Actively Ethical: Dynamic UX for AI

Artificially intelligent technologies are exciting and with them come new and intimidating responsibilities. How do we understand and clarify our users’ needs for transparency, control, and access (and more) when the system is constantly changing? Learn what you can do to protect the people affected by these systems by utilizing ethics and speculative activities to preemptively identify potential misuse and abuse of these systems.


Amanda Dorsey is a Director of Product Management at Capital One

Balancing data needs with UX: Designing AI products

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is powerful and rapidly evolving, and has many implications for product managers and designers. Leveraging my experience designing patented AI products at Capital One, I will be sharing tips for designing customer-loved AI products, including balancing data needs with user experience, earning user trust, starting small, and partnering effectively across design, product, tech, and analytics.

Event Host: UX Research and Strategy

UX Research and Strategy is a registered 501c3 group devoted to teaching and exploring topics related to User Experience Research and Strategy. Started by three very talented ladies, Jen Blatz, Lorie Whitaker and Lauren Singer, who saw the need to address the gap in these topics in the local UX community. The hope for this group is to enrich and complement the UX Design community through knowledge sharing and partnership.

Whether you are a researcher, designer, product owner, strategist, content creator, project manager, developer, technologist, marketer, customer experience pro or any other discipline, please join us. All are welcome.
