Below is what my friend at Ideo sent me. Let me know if anyone has relevant projects they would like to share and I will connect you.
This could be, but not limited to:
• Designing for voice interaction (Alexa, Google Home, Viv, etc)
• Personal, intelligent robots (Jibo, BRanto Orb, Robotics, Furo-i-home, etc)
• Character designer at Pixar (how character design could inspire personalities of bots / assistants)
• AI in the workplace (new ways of working in collaboration with machine learning systems)
…or anything else in this new, exciting space! Our requirements are merely that she or he be local, friendly and INSPIRING.
