Human-centric interactions for Artificial Intelligence
PROWLER.io has developed the world’s first principled AI platform for generalised decision-making. Their world-class scientists take AI beyond black boxes to a platform that is interpretable & controllable. It learns autonomously and makes decisions in order to achieve goals in high-dimensional, dynamic systems like financial markets, smart cities, online games and logistics.
Through comprehensive user research, we have worked closely with the company to understand how humans might interact with future AI-based systems to achieve desirable outcomes. Of particular interest has been how to build trust in AI such that humans are comfortable acting on computer-driven instructions and how to motivate people to act in a way which may seem counter-intuitive. Our research and analysis of unmet needs has shaped a vision for AI user-experience design, still relatively unexplored in human-computer interaction (HCI).

Head of Group
Dovetailed conducted 1-1 interviews with 15 participants who were recruited
from five different industries, identified by PROWLER.io as being of high strategic importance for the company. User questionnaires were developed in a highly collaborative manner with the internal development team to fully understand the operational demands of particular industries and uncover potential insights into how AI-based systems could add value. Discussion of existing workflows, daily routines and responsibilities helped to shape user personas and visionary user-journeys which in turn informed later UX design work and wireframes.
The UX of AI
The UX of AI is a work-in-progress and a vast new space to explore. We are researching, designing and running user studies to help PROWLER.io to answer fundamental questions which will enable their vision.
