‘Owning’ your AI

UX + Project Management in an AI world

Can AI help humanity? Is there a role for UX and Project Managers in its development? Learn tactical practices to manage an AI’s development and own its user experience from Tyson McDowell.

Tyson will help product teams become the super heroes in their product and company’s story. He’ll demystify AI, and teach us the tools to conquer AI, learn to control and use it, and master AI for the good of humanity. When engineers think in regression formulas, it falls on product teams to design the outcomes and roles for AI.

Slay the AI dragon. The first step is awareness; the second is knowing what to do about it; the third is critiquing existing products and changing their trajectory. At the end of this Meetup you’ll have the knowledge and tools to move forward confidently in our AI world.
