Ghosts in the machine: AI, design, and ethics
In the decades since the internet's inception, we've seen many exponential leaps in technology, spawning new ways to communicate, create, work, learn, play, buy, and sell. Each new innovation has been more controversial than the last, up to and including the internet's newest darling, artificial intelligence.
AI is being incorporated in our lives and workflows with astonishing speed, to both the delight and disgust of users and consumers alike. As designers, developers, product managers, and engineers, we have a unique opportunity — and responsibility, to adopt and adapt this technology ethically, equitably, and sustainably.
In this talk, I will uncover the history of artificial intelligence, its strengths and pitfalls, and will share recent case studies in how to apply it in our work in product development, emphasizing how we can use this not-so-new tool for good, for all.
