Harnessing AI to build better UI

A fascinating article (and set of demos) about [how generative and improvisational AI techniques could help us invent better interfaces](https://distill.pub/2017/aia/), and better ways of thinking for humans:

> At its deepest, interface design means developing the fundamental primitives human beings think and create with…

> We’ve described a third view, in which AIs actually change humanity, helping us invent new cognitive technologies, which expand the range of human thought. Perhaps one day those cognitive technologies will, in turn, speed up the development of AI, in a virtuous feedback cycle.

So not *just* computers quickly generating lots of options based on existing pieces, but helping us think up new ways to frame the questions, and build new tools to explore them. Your next design colleague could be a machine.
