We can expect AI to only widen the digital divide
It's easy in the technology world to look away from
inequality becaus the privileges that come with tech
life are pleasurable and self-fulfilling.
But designers in tech can easily forget that they're in
a tiny minority of the population that doesn't really
match their much broader consumer market.
So getting out of the tech bubble can be a simple yet
powerful way to better connect with "real" people
who don't really need what is being created today.
Ultimately, it becomes a way to design and make
better products for all people.
A majority of designers in tech find themselves not
working solely on premise. This means that we are
entering an era where work can be more evenly
distributed outside of hubs like Silicon Valley.
Our design imperative at Automattic is to imagine a
world where WordPress is good design for all. And
we're currently exploring how remote work can
achieve a new level of inclusive design.
