World Interaction Design Day at McKinney

World Interaction Design Day at McKinney

September 26, 2019

For World Interaction Design Day, Ladies that UX of Durham and McKinney hosted a panel on trust and responsibility. Ladies that UX is a group that promotes peer learning, support, and friendships among women, including trans and genderqueer women, working in or entering the UX field.

The panel discussion focused on gender and voice interaction, and it touched on subjects from gender biases and tone to greater accountability in how AI machines respond to inappropriate questions, as well as the idea of stepping out of the binary to ponder the use of genderless voices.

The conversation also addressed the morality of AI when voice assistants are used by the elderly, as the panel and audience pondered exactly how human AI should be without crossing ethical lines.
