  • Category: AI vs Humanity



It may seem like AI is popping up everywhere, in all aspects of our lives. While it is true that AI is being used in more and more applications, it helps to remember that any application of AI is fundamentally a tool.

Like any other tool, AI is designed and shaped by the individuals who create it and the greater context in which it’s developed. That is especially true of AI because AI is a learning and continually evolving tool.

Designing AIs is not just using a bunch of complex algorithms— it’s a process that requires being thoughtful about the end goal and deliberate about the interim steps taken to get there. AIs are like stories that are constantly learning and evolving, but we are still the authors.

In this session, explore the evolution of artificial intelligence with Paulina Mustafa, Product Designer, Google, including ways we can harness our influence to author the direction of the growing industry.

Attend this session and learn:

  • How AI is designed- the basic process and components
  • What we can do to proactively author the direction AIs take
  • Why the process of designing an AI never ends and why that’s great
