IA Summit 2018 Main Conference TalkTopic(s): artificial intelligence, emerging tech, internet of things, and machine learning
Yesterday we designed information for paper. Today we design apps for screens. What will we design tomorrow?
When we look to tomorrow, we see artificial intelligence, drones, self-driving cars, autonomous robots, augmented reality, virtual reality, and more. What we see is a world of artificial bodies, artificial minds, and artificial reality. And at the heart, real experience.
This talk will explore three fundamental design problems of the future: the designing of these artificials, designing FOR these artificials, and designing WITH these artificials. All paths point to a single future: designs of the artificial.
