WUD 2020: some of our favourite content around human-centred AI

Celebrating this year’s World Usability Day with some insightful articles from Medium around the topic of human-centred artificial intelligence, 2020’s topic.

The hype around artificial intelligence has, for quite a long time, been a mix of excitement over innovation, technological advancements and new possibilities, and fear that humans will lose control of the technology they create.

The topic will be celebrated during this year’s World Usability Day, which will look to “explore design systems that are both highly automated and allow a great degree of user control and will result in to expand human capabilities 1000-fold.”

“If we can design AI which is ‘reliable, trusted, and safe’ we can dramatically enhance human performance in the coming decade.”
