Wireframing a self-driving car — NUX January
The Era of Artificial Intelligence is here— and promises to be bigger than the industrial revolution. Will UX survive AI? Andrew Ng said, “If you take a shopping mall and you build a website for it, this does not equal an internet company.” He also said, “If your Product Manager draws a wireframe of a self-driving car and says ‘hey build this,’ this is not useful.” UX is actually ideally suited for the challenges of applied AI, but we lack the tools. In this talk, Alan Laidlaw will guide us as we dive into the parts of AI that never make headlines (aka 90% of the work), break down some use cases to understand where AI is (and isn’t) a good fit, and discuss the skills and tools needed for this new era of UX. Alan is a product manager for the Applied Machine Intelligence team at Home Depot in Atlanta. This is a small team of data scientists and engineers who find and build ML-based solutions across the enterprise. He’s been a product manager, UXer, and developer for about a decade — but never a data scientist. ~~~ Doors open at 5:30 pm — networking, snacks, drinks 6:30 — presentation 7:15 - 8:00 — networking ~~~ As always, thanks to Nossi College of Art, TekSystems Digital, and Bridgestone — our wireframe sponsors, keeping things on track from beginning to end And of course, thanks to WeWork for the refreshments, food, and the use of their gorgeous downtown space. See you there!

    What is user experience?

    UX or User Experience is everything the user of an app or site touches, sees, clicks, taps, and experiences; where user goals meet business goals.

    UX managers and hands-on leads strategize with business and product teams to define strategy, and work with implementation teams to deliver solutions.

    UI stands for User Interface, which is the screen or surface a user sees and interacts with. UI comes from the UX and product strategy; UI is the tangible output.
