Video: Design Is [Smart]

Jess Holbrook and Josh Lovejoy demystify and explain human-centered machine learning

Machine learning will cause us to rethink, restructure, and consider new possibilities for virtually every built experience. In the Google UX community, designers practice human-centered machine learning (HCML) to help focus and guide that conversation. In this talk, HCML experts Jess Holbrook and Josh Lovejoy introduce designers to core machine learning concepts, explain how to integrate ML into the UX toolkit, and talk through ways to ensure that ML and AI are built inclusively.
