I Blame the Parents : AI Needs to be Raised Right

AI headlines are dominated by dystopia, but what tangible examples are there of mastering machines to help humanity?

AI needs agency – focus to produce particular results, good or bad. Share our examples of human-centered experience design for AI – supporting mental health for the Veterans Association and looking forward to transcendence for the terminally ill.

Join us as we explore how to be good parents to AI - helping it grow beyond being a fancy decision tree to become humanistic.
