Human-Centered AI

In order to celebrate World Usability Day we have used this years theme - Human-Centred AI. 

Over the last two decades computers have enhanced human’s abilities to perform our work, ensure our safety, and even lighten our workload. Interest continues to increase in AI’s capabilities to improve human performance. However, there is an accompanying fear that humans will lose control of the technology they create.

During the day we will explore the past and the present of AI. How is it being used? How could, and maybe should, we use it? Where do we see the strongest potential within UX and design. For example, how is the music industry using AI? Within the field of art, are there new ways to be creative? We will also talk about bias within AI, not just the technology but also in the perspective of where it comes from and whom is working with it. 

Join us at STHLM Xperience Conference and together we will discuss Human-Centered AI while learning from each other how to use it in the right way. It is a participatory conference with lectures, practical tips, and workshops. Speakers on stage are experts in their field. 

Date: 12 November 2020 (World Usability Day)
: Online  
: 14.00–17.30 (GMT +1)
