In this session, we will look at how to make people’s lives easier, by taking care of the mundane and repetitive tasks in their lives, but with an important twist.

This will be the black mirror (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Mirror_(TV_series)) of a near future. We will be looking at how to intentionally create an awkward moment for the user, and unexpected consequence.

The workshop will cycle through ideation methods and techniques, with a focus on the emotional and human impacts of our users giving control to the AI automation.

Following on from a workshop at Interaction17 in NYC, this session will be updated and customized to fit in a 1h30min session, giving us tome to explore the area of ‘new modern living’ and then have an interactive section where we can concept AI automation in our lives, pushing into the awkward and inappropriate outcomes that could be our new reality.
