About the course
How do we design AI systems that augment and empower people? This course connects human-computer interaction (HCI), the multidisciplinary field that focuses on designing interactions between humans and technology, to the transformative effects of AI so that you can better serve your customers and drive your company forward.
You’ll learn to make informed decisions on how and when our company should be designing smart and AI-based products to change how you work, learn and communicate.
What you will learn
- To use AI to empower people, rather than replace them
- To design for AI's inherent uncertainty and error in your products
- To make sense of what an AI model knows and doesn't know
- To design better products and utilize new forms of user sensing (e.g., voice commands, gestural interaction)
Note: This course was previously titled “Enhance User Experience with Human-Computer Interaction.” All of the content has remained the same.
