Designing Agentive Technology

21 June 2017 – Rotterdam

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.

Join Chris Noessel, as he introduces us to the concepts from his new book Designing Agentive Technology.

Christopher Noessel 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 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, and author of Designing Agentive Technology: AI That Works for People (Rosenfeld Media, 2017).
