AI and Design
Joint Certification Program with world university of design

In this age of fast-growing technology and innovation, Artificial intelligence (AI) is getting embedded in so many everyday products without realizing its existence. Creating an AI embedded and AI-empowered environment is not only about creating a smart machine. It is about finding ways to design systems through which humans can find a balance between natural and artificial, a balance between art and science. That’s how design plays a vital role in creating these systems of which AI is an integral part. Design and Design thinking is no more limited to Designers now. Incorporating Design Thinking in the process of innovation could embed the human factor to enhance the experience and function of the system or a product vis-à-vis, AI can help designers to design a product or a system by taking care of some usual work that saves time and effort for the designer to spend on idea building. This course explores the existing scenario and finds out how AI has already become part of our surroundings, as well as it explores how Design thinking can be part of the AI innovation process to further enhance human factor and experience in future AI embedded and empowered human environments.
