Toward AI assistants that let designers design


We need to rethink how we assist designers with artificial intelligence (AI). AI should aim to cooperate, not automate, by supporting and leveraging the creativity and problem-solving capabilities of designers. The challenge for such AI is how to infer designers’ goals and then help them without being needlessly disruptive. We introduce AI-assisted design, a new framework for creating such AI, built around generative user models, which allow it to infer and adapt to designers’ goals, reasoning, and capabilities.
