The Basics of AI, for Designers, by One of Our Own

with Christopher Noessel

8 hours over 2 days: June 6-7 2024

Real-world artificial Intelligence can seem overwhelming. It’s a complicated thing and when you try to look into it, it’s filled with intimidating computational jargon. For designers, though, the basics of AI can be made pretty simple. By understanding the basics of data, models, algorithms, and machine learning, you can make sense of almost any AI, separate out what is meaningful for design, and continue with your user-centered practice, mostly as before. (And yes, we’ll cover generative AI.) In this workshop we’ll go over these basics, talk about the interactions germane to narrow AI, and get some hands-on practice in teams.

We’ll look at how to make the most of the technology as well as how different types are limited. Specifically, we’ll look at how to leverage AI to craft personas and journey maps that will improve your designs, even from incomplete data.
