AI Design Challenge: The Rise of Bots

Course Code: 
SARC 5500
William Sherman

As new technologies based in artificial intelligence transform the capabilities of websites and apps on the internet, there is an opportunity to imagine and design unprecedented forms of interaction.  This course is sponsored and led by OpenGrounds and Willowtree Apps to gather students from across the university to explore the potential of bots and related AI-based emerging technologies to transform user experience. It will involve faculty from several schools, designers and experts from Willowtree and their industry partners to engage in an immersive dive. The readings, workshops and design sessions will lead to speculative team proposals for the future of artificial intelligence in daily life.
