theme for uxplorer 24

This competition invites participants to explore the multifaceted world of ‘Agentic AI’.

AI Agents are  intelligent systems programmed to navigate their environments, make decisions and accomplish goals autonomously, free from human intervention. Unlike traditional AI where prompts are necessary for responses, AI agents operate independently, driven by goals rather than inputs.

In an Agentic UX, an AI Agent pulls weight across 3 categories:

Cognitive: The built in agent pulls analysis and decision-making weight

Creative: The built in agent takes on visualization and media creation weight

Logistical: The built in agent takes tasks on operation and workflow weight

First part

Identify AI use cases and examine the cognitive, creative and logistical burdens placed on the user's shoulders, or, more broadly, the places where they are most alone.

Second part

Analyse the 'ripple effects' of these AI use cases, considering ethical concerns, biases, privacy, security risks, trust and psychological impacts on humans. This competition aims to showcase innovative AI applications while fostering a thoughtful discussion on their far-reaching cascading effects.
