Machines have picked up astonishing skills: they beat us at chess and Go, they have learnt to pilot a drone or how to create oil paintings. These impressive feats are pushing the boundaries, they show us what is possible. But machines have picked up skills that are less noteworthy, but way more useful: they have learnt to understand what we say, they can figure out which series we might want to binge on next or how to write compelling news articles.
Machines have learnt many things that are finding their ways into digital products. In this talk, I will give a bird’s-eye view of these developments — and I’ll dare to make some predictions about how these might impact the way we design products.
I gave this talk in Zürich on the 31st of October 2019.
