UX Speaker Series: Ruth Kukin-Gil, Microsoft

Campus location: Savery Hall (SAV) Campus room: 260 Event types: Lectures/Seminars Event sponsors: Human Centered Design & Engineering Link: Every Friday in winter quarter the department of Human Centered Design & Engineering brings industry experts to speak about current issues in user experience (UX) research and design. All talks are free and open to the public. Students register for course credit with HCDE 521. Talk title Humanity-centered design: How can AI disrupt and augment the design process Talk abstract AI is coming to get us. Everyone knows that. The singularity is right around the corner, alongside with the moment we will all lose our jobs and live in unethical, unimaginable apocalypse. The good news is that until then designers and AI can have fun together. I’ll talk about the ways that designers could harness the power of AI through the different phases of the design process and how together we can create wonderful new products and services. I’m a design strategist, digital product designer, and a practical dreamer that focuses on product innovation across devices, input methods and platforms. About the Speaker Ruth Kukin-Gil spent the last nine years in Microsoft working in an innovation lab, on a strategy team, and now on future experiences in Office. In addition, She lectures at the HCDE department in the University of Washington, Seattle. Before Microsoft, she co-founded a digital product design agency in Tel-Aviv, was the corporate art director of a startup, worked for Nokia in Helsinki, freelanced in London, and earned her Interaction Design Master degree from IDII in Italy. Ruth is interested in the interplay between society and technology, and the ways in which people appropriate technology in unexpected ways. She explores how existing social interactions and behaviors can be supported or transformed by technology and influence the creation of new products and services.
