Artificial intelligence and intelligent systems are no longer a utopian vision of the future: they are our new reality. In a world that seems every day more dominated by algorithmic intelligence, people often wonder about the role humans should play in an AI-driven world. This is particularly relevant when AI technologies are deployed in products that are meant to be used in creative fields or in complex environments by experienced users.

Alessandro Palladini explores the role of experts and creatives in a world dominated by intelligent machines by bridging the gap between the research on complex systems and tools for creativity. He examines what he believes to be the key design principles and perspectives on making intelligent tools for creativity and for experts in the loop. He applies these principles to different creative scenarios encountered in music creation, showing how a human-centered AI could push music production to a new level of creativity. You’ll learn about the psychology of complex systems, creative workflows and technology, trust in AI and psychology of automation, and AI for creativity in music production.
