World Usability Day 2020
The event took place online in Zoom.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a trend topic. A buzzword that is commonly used for the replication and automation of intelligent behavior. Machines controlled by algorithms are often in direct competition with humans.
AI is a challenge for the user experience when it simulates decision structures based on pattern recognition.
There is probably hardly any other topic that is discussed so controversially and interdisciplinary.
