Hype may come and go, but artificial intelligence is not going away. You will work on an AI experience during your career, regardless of your job title. Are you sweating a little?
AI experiences require programmers and designers to make unprecedented ethical decisions. Instead of designing a knowable set of content and interactions, AI experiences require us to design for probabilities and potential risks, with limited control over outcomes. Who is equipped to guide us through this new frontier?
You are! (Yes, YOU.) As an information architect, you already have what it takes to be a steward of responsible AI. You have the necessary skills and foresight that others in the room lack. You’ve been waiting for this moment. This is not a stump speech. After this talk, you’ll:
• Have a concrete definition of what it means to do “responsible AI”
• Know key responsible AI principles and see how your IA skills support them
• Develop a mental model for how to tackle this challenge
• Walk away with confidence and clarity to fulfill your calling as a steward of responsible AI
