Smart Stuff: Alternative Interfaces, Artificial Intelligence, and Augmented Interactions
January 1, 2019 - January 2, 2019
AI seems to be everywhere. It is an acronym fraught with implications and possibilities. We have an idea of what it means, but how do our smart devices know what we want? Who taught my car to parallel park? Is my home spying on me? It’s all very confusing.
This year CHIFOO explores the opportunities and challenges alternative interfaces, artificial intelligence and augmented interactions bring to our futures. We will take a deep dive into how smart devices, cars, and homes are changing our culture and even us, while exploring the interactions this new tech makes possible. The possibilities are exciting, inspiring, and at times unexpected.
As professionals dealing with communication, interaction, and results we are at the center of this vortex of change, given the charge to provide solid solutions for an uncertain world. We are empowered by these new tools yet challenged by them as well. As the ones responsible for using it all, we must get up to speed on it all quickly.
This speaker series will explore the various ways these themes are playing out in our lives now while determining the potential for the future by examining specific applications of each. By understanding more about what the potential of how to best use the tools, we can provide better solutions in our own work, and create a more friendly world. Please join us for this exciting series.
