Howard Pyle shares a fascinating perspective on improving inclusive design with AI to create digital experiences that are custom tuned to individual needs. He will also prepare us by talking about how the UX as a field will change due to AI. 

We’ll learn:

  •  What’s coming with generative design, accessibility and inclusion. Instead of “web for all” transitioning to “web for each” with dynamic experiences assembled in real-time for the user.

  • How to prepare for the changes AI will bring to our work. It's set to replace some tasks (like using patterns or design systems to create one-off pages or flows by hand) but also shifts our focus towards system building and management.
