Designing A.I.

Spring 2019

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 4215

Credits: 3

Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) technologies are on the verge of going mainstream; but how they will ultimately manifest is an open question. This studio will examine current and near-term A.I. from the perspective of an underserved, alternative, or creative community. Taking that community as a partner, students will explore how A.I. could be applied in service to the aspirations of that group. It is through these uses that we can ask how our understanding of the technology, and its future development, may change. We will begin by surveying the current landscape of A.I. technologies and the surrounding questions of social bias. Students then will conceive and design projects that prototype new applications or tools. Projects will explore alternatives to code-based demos, developing new ways for non-technical stakeholders to benefit from, and contribute to, emerging technologies.

Open to: All university graduate degree students; undergraduate seniors by instructor permission.
