Invisible Design: Co-designing with machines

Machines have rapidly developed intelligence in this generation and their capabilities are changing the products we design. The process in which they are designed will also need to evolve. This article is the start of a conversation about co-designing with machines and what I’m calling Invisible Design — a process and design language for product designers working with artificial intelligence and technologies like machine learning. I believe these processes and tools are seeds for the future of product desig

On #AINow: Beyond Transparency, what is design and ethics in algorithms and artificial intelligence…

Are we giving AI engineers and creators the right tools to be ethical and create ethical products, algorithms, and software?

To Bell’s statement, I ask: what can we, the designers, the makers of the products that use machine learning that intervene in people’s daily lives can do? How do we design ethically and transparently for people? How do we take hard technical concepts and distill them for a variety, a majority of users without hurting, subverting or subterfuging our users with their data?

What the End of Code Really Means

Which brings up a further point: Who constructs and maintains these supposedly revolutionary neural networks? The answer is developers and engineers — people who possess the sort of specialized computer know-how that Wired argues will soon be a thing of the past. That’s not eradicating code as we know it; that’s sending it one level deeper into bureaucratic obfuscation. If Wired is right, machine learning will reduce the number of people who know how to code, but, at the same time, it will make those who do even more powerful.

How We Used Artificial Intelligence to Write a Crowdpleaser Horror Script

Will the world’s first feature co-written by AI change the way movies are made?

The AI failed to recognize the deep plot structures that are essential to creative work. Why did it not work? In short, writing a full script is probably too complex of a task for today’s AI. Today’s AI is very good at recognizing patterns in a large dataset, but it is hard for AI to be “creative” enough to create good content.
