A Designer’s Guide To The $15 Billion Artificial Intelligence Industry

A designer's guide to the $15 billion artificial intelligence industry  (from 2016)

  • The best designers know that they need to study human behavior if they want to make the right choices for their users.
  • It allows designers to cater to, and anticipate, individual users’ needs.
  • With AI, products and services aren’t just performing basic functions; they’re emotionally aware, letting designers create the best experience for each user.
