Join us via Live Stream for the March 18th Public Lecture Portion!

Have you ever wanted to bring machine learning into your design practice? Are you an artist interested in bringing AI + ML into your work practically? Have we got a workshop for you! During this workshop we will walk you through several projects, incorporating physical computing, and whimsical cardboard prototyping.

We also will cover burgeoning AI + ML topics, including practical applications in product design, and give an idea of how we’ve learned to use this evolving technology as a creative medium. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their ideas in a creative and open setting, taking a project from idea to prototype. This workshop is open to creators of all skill levels, but any prior experience with creative coding or physical computing won’t hurt!

Lucas Ochoa is a human-robot interaction product manager and designer at Google X’s “Everyday Robot Project.” In his time at Google, he has worked as a creative technologist at the Creative Lab, and as a lead hardware interaction designer at Google hardware on the wearables team. He currently lives in San Francisco and often likes to stay home with a really good book.

Gautam Bose is a creative technologist living in San Francisco, working at Google Creative Lab. He spends his time working to make machine learning more accessible, understandable, and useful for everyone.
