Design principles for AI-enabled UI

In my previous articles, I described the design process for AI-enabled user interfaces at Deloitte’s impact foundation project ‘Social Robot Alice.’ I also discovered four baseline design principles to keep in mind when designing for AI-enabled user interfaces:

1. discovery and expectation management;

2. design for forgiveness;

3. data transparency and tailoring, and

Otherwise, it could result in bad user experience, insufficient adoption and unsatisfied users. …


What to keep in mind when designing for AI — a black box full of algorithms

With this article, I am sharing my personal learnings from creating an AI-enabled UI. I developed four baseline principles which can be applied when designing for AI-enabled user interfaces: 1) discovery and expectation management, 2) design for forgiveness, 3) data transparency and tailoring, and 4) privacy, security and control.Next to the applying basic UX knowledge, keep these design principles in mind and you will have a good base for your AI-enabled user interface.
