ELC 043: Will you design intelligent agents in the future?
The future is now. I’m talking about the fact that software we use every day is based on artificial intelligence algorithms and the trend is growing. How will you be using AI in the future? Will you benefit from automation? Will you design AI software for learning? Will you be training AI agents?
In this session, I interview Chris Noessel, about a fascinating category of artificial intelligence known as agentive technology. Chris is the author of Designing Agentive Technology: AI That Works for People and coauthor of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction.
He is also a UX professional, where he has designed products, services, and strategy for a variety of domains, including health, financial, and consumer. Chris currently works with IBM, as Global Design Practice Lead for the Travel and Transportation sector.

I am a second year graduate student in a Learning Design and Technology Master's degree program and a full-time Instructional Designer/Trainer.
I just want to say that I love this podcast. The interviews are so amazing and so many topics are directly relevant to my work and personal interests. Granted, I am a podcast addict – I’ll be the first to admit it - so I'm usually multi-tasking when I listen to them. However when, I listen to the eLearning Podcast I have to make sure I have nothing else in front of me because I usually have to take notes or review show notes for links to resources. I have shared episodes with my supervisor and co-workers on more than few occasions.
Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you and keep up the good work.
