Who to Trust Online and the Dangers of Conscious AI

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of December 11th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

Who To Trust Online?: On the internet, as in the offline world, some voices are more trustworthy than others. Could an algorithm help us decide whose opinion we should listen to?

Are Conscious AI Dangerous?: Many of the safety and ethics issues that crop up during Westworld hinge on whether or not the robots are conscious. In fact, the show whole-heartedly delves into one of the hardest questions of all: what is consciousness?

What Do We Lose When It’s Easy to Use?: Good UX is commonly associated with clarity and ease of use, but it also contributes to a homogenization of design and experience.

The End of Globalization?: Three scenarios for the future of globalization are possible, and nations as well as international organizations had better prepare for more than one of them.

Products
