Who Should Attend

This course was created for professionals developing smart products powered by machine learning, including entrepreneurs, user experience designers, product managers, and (full-stack) developers. Participants should have a basic understanding of programming and rudimentary mathematical maturity.


Course Description

This course introduces techniques for designing effective user experiences powered by machine learning models. This course offers strategies for bootstrapping the design process in these situations, mapping user-centered design requirements to low-level modeling decisions, and explaining model behavior to users to engender trust.

Lectures present recent results from human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence research, and case studies of real-world products. Instructor-led coding demonstrations and design exercises merge this theory with practice, reifying how user-centered design can be injected into a data-driven product’s development process.

Learning Outcomes 

This course teaches strategies for operationalizing user experience guidelines in the context of data-driven products, including how to

  • identify user needs and automation/augmentation opportunities with Wizard-of-Oz prototypes
  • design machine learning models that support explainability, personalization, and fairness
  • iteratively improve user experience with human-machine co-learning systems
