In his talk, "AI For Good” Isn’t Good Enough: A Call for Human-Centered AI", Professor James Landay elaborates on his argument for an authentic Human-Centered AI. 

User-centered design integrates techniques that consider the needs and abilities of end users, while also improving designs through iterative user testing. Community-centered design engages communities in the early stages of design through participatory techniques. Societally-centered design forecasts and mediates potential impacts on a societal level throughout a project. 

Successful Human-Centered AI requires the early engagement of multidisciplinary teams beyond technologists, including experts in design, the social sciences and humanities, and domains of interest such as medicine or law, as well as community members.
