Designing Agentive Technology: AI that Works for People

Advances in narrow artificial intelligence make possible agentive systems that do things directly for their users (like, say, an automatic pet feeder). They deliver on the promise of user-centered design, but present fresh challenges in understanding their unique promises and pitfalls.

In this talk on Designing Agentive Technology, Chris provides both a conceptual grounding and practical advice to unlock agentive technology’s massive potential.

About Chris Noessel

Christopher is the Global Design Practice Manager for Travel and Transportation industries with IBM. He teaches, speaks about, and evangelizes design internationally. His spidey-sense goes off semi-randomly, leading him to speak about things from interactive narrative to ethnographic user research, interaction design to generative randomness, and designing for the future.

He is co-author of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction (Rosenfeld Media, 2012), co-author of About Face: The Essentials of Interaction Design, 4th Edition (Wiley, 2015), keeper of the blog scifiinterfaces.com, and author of Designing Agentive Technology: AI That Works for People (Rosenfeld Media, 2017).
