Intelligence on Tap: Artificial Intelligence as a New Design Material
I don’t really believe in using AI as a material we should use to design for humans with. It is not human, and computers do not think altruistically. We as humans design for humans and bringing in an element such as this adds an aspect to design that does not benefit us. I understand how it is mapped like our brains, so-called artificial neural networks and such, but it loses the touch of our emotions and sometimes irrational decisions which can coincidentally benefit us.
UX Design Innovation: Challenges for Working with Machine Learning as a Design Material
I think the more we work towards creating with machine learning, the less we rely on the human aspect to create. Yes these machines themselves are human creations, but when we let an algorithm or computer have a say in what we create as humans for humans, we lose the touch. The fact that music is so beautiful because it is created by something that is inherently imperfect (humans) makes it human itself. I think using machine learning as a tool to develop design further is important, but not something we should come to rely on.
Machines Learning Culture
It’s definitely interesting to see machine learning and how it interacts with visual arts, but I’m curious about the future of it with audio. Could we develop ways for machines to create music perfectly suited to our tastes? I currently use a service called brain.fm that develops music to suit your brain for creative work or studying. Could a new version of this analyze your tastes and create a perfect song? Could we use it to create ways to battle mental illness?
