Industry – User Research and Practice in Industry For AI

 

As the industry is increasingly churning intelligent products in forms of recommender systems, text predictors, chat-bots, and such, it has given birth to the big question of user research and their role in the design process. Since AI systems seek to mimic or predict user decision and choices, their impact on users in terms of providing a satisfactory user experience is a big challenge.
The human has become an even more important part in the human-centered design process since the shift towards AI. We aim to discuss how UX practitioners in the industry identify user needs and translate them into efficient AI systems. We ask the big question of – How can humans inform the need to create more human-like AI technologies? Subsequently, we also discuss how these metrics are evaluated and judged.
