AIX - DESIGNING FOR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

A Short Online course for Product Designers to learn to design for Voice, Computer Vision, AR/VR and Machine Learning


About This Course:

Artificial Intelligence is everywhere in the form of Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality, Computer Vision, Voice and Machine Learning Data. We see AI in our homes, cities, airports, factories, cars, roads, hospitals. It is entering our lives as Voice Assistants, security cameras, connected doorbells, wearables on our bodies, medical devices, robots, drones, facial recognition in airports, chat bots on many websites and autonomous vehicles. AI is invisible in data everywhere in our search engines, shopping and Netflix recommendations in healthcare data augmenting humans in healthcare data, financial bots, facial recognition of our photos and geolocation data.

AI is everywhere, making decisions, creating conveniences, changing our way of lives, invading our privacy, bringing technology to all facets of our lives. Cars are becoming software on wheels and collecting lot of data about driving patterns, health of car parts for service, behavior data of passengers.

All of this is waiting for You, Product Managers and UX Designers!!!

You are needed to create experiences that put the user at the center to create conveniences, entertainment, new shared spaces with AI that carries our context and intent with us from our bodies to our homes to our car into workplaces, entertainment and several personalized life experiences.

Our Teaching Approach:


We teach the online course with a project based approach with weekly live classes in small cohorts that run every two months. We offer a lot of content but are sensitive to how busy our students are from their jobs and travels. We value the live class discussion from the diversity of perspective of our students who will come into the class with varying degrees of experience, expertise and expectations.

We start the course with Industry Guest Speakers

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a vast topic that covers many technologies and has a huge reach covering many industries and walks of life. We will focus on Voice, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality (AR) and Computer Vision to teach the Product Designer to work with these AI to create Human Computer Interface (HCI) with the user at the center of their design.

The AIX course has professionals from many countries from variety of industries and educational backgrounds coming together to create a human centered design. Some of you might know some AI. Others might have worked with data but are not comfortable with developing AI technologies. All of you share the aspiration to decide for AI to delight your customer.

So, to get the students to the same page, we will spend the first month with guest speakers who will cover one AI per week in a guest lecture session. These sessions will be on Wednesdays at 9am PT/18 hr cest/1pm Brazil. Registered students will join the speaker on a Zoom classroom and can ask questions. If you miss the session, you can come back and watch the recorded session archive and have lifetime access to the lesson.

The guest speakers will bring industry expertise, share tools and best practices and answer student's questions in live online sessions. At the end of each session, the students gets comfortable with the practical aspect of one AI per week. The guest speaker sessions also get the students ready to plan for what type of AI are they passionate about and what fits their goals to work for their run-on course project.

"Sudha's self-driving car business class was packed - with technologists, legal experts, designers, people working on self-driving helicopters, digital mapping experts, wireless experts, data miners, and car enthusiasts. Sudha engaged this extraordinary group in lively discussion and got us thinking like futurists. It was a magical class. Highly recommend it! "
