Are you prepared to boost your design comprehension in a few weeks with a high-quality programme?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a transformative force reshaping and redefining the landscape of connected products and services. AI enables more efficient data processing and seamless information exchange, fostering the ability to learn from past interactions, anticipate human behaviour, and continuously improve their functionalities and decision-making processes.
The Advanced Course in Designing AI Connected Ecosystems is tailored for professionals who want to explore the endless possibilities of connected products/service ecosystems infused by AI.
The Advanced Course structure is organised in two modules. Each module includes one theoretical course and one core workshop.
After successfully completing the Advanced Course in AI Connected Ecosystems, and additionally being recognised with 24 CFA/ECTS (for accredited path), students may have the opportunity to further proceed their studies by enrolling in the Academic Master’s Programme in Interaction Design.
ECTS credits might be validated at the option of the chosen University of reference in case of a transfer’s request to a postgraduate programme.
Dates: 10 Sept 2024 – 24 Jan 2025 or 27 Jan – 23 May 2025
Participants of the Advanced Course are expected to have first level academic degree (Bachelor degree or academic diploma) in fields related to the selected study programme.
Students with a different degree or diploma, motivated by strong interest in the programme’s topics and professionals with a previous background in the related field of study can also apply.
Certificate of English language (IELTS 5.0 Academic or equivalent on entry) is required.
From designing sustainable interconnected systems to crafting responsible connected products and services, participants will find opportunities in leading tech companies, design studios, and innovation-driven enterprises, playing a pivotal role in transforming how businesses and people interact with an AI connected world. These professional roles include, but are not limited to:
This theoretical course is an immersion into the foundational principles and theories of designing interconnected ecosystems, exploring the historical evolution, emerging trends, ethical implications, and overall sustainability of connected products and services enhanced by Artificial Intelligence.
The course offers a comprehensive framework for designing Multimodal Artificial Intelligence enabling more intuitive human interactions and personalised experiences.
DESIGNING INTERCONNECTED SYSTEMS
The studio-based workshop engages participants in envisioning an AI-enhanced connected ecosystem, emphasising devices that intelligently adapt to human behaviour and changing contexts.
SHAPING EMBODIED EXPERIENCES
The workshop focuses on designing interactions with AI systems that go beyond just screens, engaging users through their senses in the physical environment, improving the human experience in connected products and services.
