How can we use Artificial Intelligence to enhance user experience? There are a myriad of menus and options users navigates on a daily basis to accomplish their tasks. How might we leverage usage patterns and AI to better anticipate how a user will interact with a product and be responsive to their unique needs, while also considering the overall ecosystem of user engagement. Panelist will focus on expanding these questions and thinking about how AI can be a tool for both designers and users as a way to remove friction and make every product experiences seamless.REFUND POLICY: We do not offer refunds.
