This talk provides concrete recommendations on how to create meaningful AI-infused experiences that leave users feeling in control, and respect their values, goals, and attention. It focuses on the Human-Ai design guidelines as a practitioner’s guide to creating useful, usable, desirable, and responsible AI products.
A group of Microsoft’s designers and researchers dove into over 20 years of AI-focused design guidance literature and distilled it into a set of eighteen best practices for human-centered AI design, then validated the guidelines through rigorous research. the work is already framing the conversations across industries and was recognized with an honorable mention award at CHI 2019, a conference that historically has defined the interaction paradigms of the future.
Designing AI-infused products should be done thoughtfully and responsibly, this talk offers everyone tools and methods to achieve it.
