What will I learn?


A multidisciplinary, human-centered approach to designing systems of machine learning intended to empower a new and more diverse generation of innovators.

As machine learning makes its way into all kinds of products, systems, spaces, and experiences, we need to train a new generation of creators to harness the potential of machine learning and also to understand its implications. This class invites a mix of designers, data scientists, engineers, business people, and diverse professionals of all backgrounds to help create a multi-disciplinary environment for collaboration. Through a mixture of hands-on guided investigations and design projects, students will learn to design systems of machine learning that create lasting value within their human contexts and environments. designwith.ml
