The design community is buzzing around the topic of AI. How can AI tools and systems help us in creating more valuable, accessible and appealing user experiences? But, it’s not just about the “how.” We must also navigate the terrain of ethics, bias, and copyright when using AI in our creative process.

Here are some thought leaders we follow to gain knowledge and insights around AI and design:

Johan Salo is a design leader at Ambition with experience of designing AI solutions. He recently participated in the PinMeTo podcast and talked about the topic of AI in marketing, design and ethics. Listen to the pod on Spotify

Pontus Wärnestål is the head of design and innovation at AI agency Eghed. He is one of the most sought-after speakers on AI and design and we highly recommend his book “Designing AI-Powered Services”.

UX Planet has a vast library of resources for UX Designers. One blog post we recommend reading is by Arpit Chandak – listing: 15 tools every UX/UI designer should try out

Feifei Liu and Kate Moran from Nielsen Norman Group have also tested AI tools for designers and researchers. In this blog post they focus on both the possibilities but also the limitations of the existing AI tools on the market. Read the blog post here.
