Session: The future is Tech-in-the-loop! What it is and why you should care.
The concept of human-in-the-loop was born to train specific machine learning algorithms that needed constant input from humans in order to learn effectively. The whole concept places AI at the centre and makes the humans go around it in a loop. Today the evolution of the human as digital user is demanding a new approach. One where the human being is at the centre of the attention while tech circles and evolves around her. We have entered the era of Tech-in-the-loop which focuses on discovering human intention, emphasising user experience, supporting an effective positive impact to celebrate the power that humans have. This presentation aims at introducing a framework to build tech products that revolve around us.
- Understanding the user as a human being first
- learning what tech-in-the-loop is
- a framework to build better human centred tech products
