Redefining human roles in an AI future

2023 started full of uncertainty, but what no one could predict was how AI would be the topic taking the year by storm. Individuals, companies, and institutions are exploring applications for this new technology in a race that could be compared to the gold rush era.
The intensity and urgency of these pursuits are now raising questions regarding how we can leverage AI and the implications of its use. Since image processing Open AI has been one of the most widespread examples, designers and researchers are left with a wicked problem – What will be the future of my role in an AI world?

In this workshop, we’ll examine historical examples, discuss potential scenarios and ideate on how society, ethics and technology could carve brand-new paths for human-centric professionals.
