In recent discussions about the intersection of design and artificial intelligence (AI), industry experts emphasize the pivotal role designers must play to shape the future.
Reflecting on historical patterns, it is noted that designers faced challenges when they entered the digital domain in the 1990s. There is a cautionary observation that a similar scenario may unfold with AI, potentially resulting in a world designed without the essential input of designers. Designers, by not actively participating in the development of the internet, are highlighted as having relinquished a significant portion of their influence.
The parallel drawn between past experiences and potential future scenarios emphasizes the risk of designers becoming subordinate to engineers if they neglect to embrace AI. The prediction outlines a scenario where designers could find themselves on the sidelines of an AI-driven world, similar to the dominance of “product managers” in web design.
An Unstoppable Force
Despite potential challenges, there is an acknowledgment that AI is an unstoppable force with the capability to either displace or empower creatives. The call to action encourages designers, journalists, writers, and technologists to participate in the AI revolution, with the belief that their involvement can mitigate potential negative impacts. The emphasis is on having a diverse group, particularly the creative community, in charge of AI development to shape a more balanced and inclusive future.
Acknowledging the impact of AI on businesses, there is a shared perspective that, whether positive or negative, AI’s influence is here to stay. The call to action urges design graduates to proactively embrace AI, emphasizing the need for participation to navigate and shape its impact on their careers.
While companies are slowly integrating AI into their operations, there is a stressed importance of a measured approach. There is caution against the fetishization of technology, with a recommendation to adopt AI only where it proves useful and beneficial to users.
Looking ahead, there are hints at companies entering a new phase, aiming to launch products that go beyond their core offerings. Focused on perfecting their services, these companies aim to surprise users with innovative approaches to people meeting and attending events together. As they prepare for this new phase, there is a dedication to reinventing these companies and ensuring their continued success in the evolving landscape of technology and user expectations.
