Artificial intelligence is a $15 billion dollar industry and growing. With more than 2, 600 companies developing intelligent technology, the value of AI is expected to rise to more than $70 billion by 2020. For designers, that represents a major business opportunity. But AI is also a challenge requiring every strength and skill they’ve learned and many they haven’t. They will have to understand sociology, psychology, and biology. They will have to develop a working knowledge of statistics. Creativity and attention to detail—designers’ stock in trade—won’t be enough. Here’s what designers will need to adapt. Think of it as a study guide to the design jobs of the future.
