Design in the Era of the Algorithm

November 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On November 14th we will have fellow Brooklynite Josh Clark join us to give a talk titled “Design in the Era of the Algorithm”

Design in the Era of the Algorithm
The design and presentation of data is just as important as the underlying algorithm, and designers have an urgent role to play in crafting the emerging generation of AI interfaces. Designer Josh Clark explores a rich trove of examples—at once entertaining and sobering—to unearth design principles for creating responsible machine-learning applications. Learn to use AI as design material in your everyday work. Adapt to the machines’ weird, unexpected, or flat-out-wrong conclusions. And above all, scrub data for bias to create the respectful and inclusive world we all want to live in.
