Event Description

Explore the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and people to expand human performance while being reliable, trusted, and safe.

2020 Theme: Human-Centered AI

Over the last two decades, computers have advanced human abilities to perform our work, ensure our safety, and even lightened our workload. Interest in AI’s capabilities to expand human performance even further continues to increase. However, there is an accompanying fear that humans will lose control of the technology they create.

In our theme this year, Human-Centered AI we seek to explore design systems that are both highly automated and allow a great degree of user control and will result in expanding human capabilities 1000-fold. If we can design AI which is “reliable, trusted, and safe” we can dramatically enhance human performance in the coming decade.

What is World Usability Day?

A single day of events occurring around the world that brings together communities of professional, industrial, educational, citizen, and government groups for our common objective: to ensure that the services and products important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.

It is about celebration and education – celebrating the strides we have made in creating usable products and educating the masses about how usability impacts our daily lives. It is about making our world work better. It is about reaching out to the common citizen and spreading the message: We don’t have to put up with products and services that don’t work well and that human error is a misnomer.
