Desiree Garcia is a designer for IBM Watson. She works on Watson Conversation, a product that enables people who are not developers to build, train, and scale conversational interfaces. Before, she worked on the Watson Developer Cloud, helping developers to leverage specific domains of cognitive technology in their software. She is interested in the notion of diverse teams setting precedent with “emerging AI,” a term she uses to describe a range of current technology that will shape what mature AI looks like someday. Her official background is in psychology research and practice, but she has been tinkering with computers and the web for much longer. Ending up on the Watson design team was unexpected, but makes pretty good sense.
