The future is now. I’m talking about the fact that software we use every day is based on artificial intelligence algorithms and the trend is growing. How will you be using AI in the future? Will you benefit from automation? Will you design AI software for learning? Will you be training AI agents?
In this session, I interview Chris Noessel, about a fascinating category of artificial intelligence known as agentive technology. Chris is the author of Designing Agentive Technology: AI That Works for People and coauthor of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction.
He is also a UX professional, where he has designed products, services, and strategy for a variety of domains, including health, financial, and consumer. Chris currently works with IBM, as Global Design Practice Lead for the Travel and Transportation sector.
