*Call for Papers: Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Human
Factors Design*

Submissions are invited for a special issue in *Ergonomics in Design* (*EID*

Machine learning (ML) is enabling a new generation of artificial
intelligence (AI) and autonomous systems that are changing our personal and
 professional lives. In this special issue, we embrace the broad spectrum
of research and design efforts that investigate or employ ML for improving
Human Factors (HF) and usability of intelligent systems and consumer
products. The central objective of this special issue is to provoke an
active debate on theory, methods, and practice of designing for interactive
AI. The issue seeks to clarify the roles of HF in contributing to a
humanist perspective that considers the social, political, ethical,
cultural, and environmental factors of implementing AI into daily
human-to-computer interactions.

*Potential topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not
limited to, the following:*

- Explainable AI

- Prototyping tools for ML or AI

- Case studies of HF design with ML

- Approaches, tools and design for data annotation and transcription for
supervised learning

- Industrial case studies where ML is used for analysis of human-centered

- Approach to machine learning vs. approach to (conventional) automation

- HF and designer roles in the intelligent product era

- Human-centered design methods for generation of training data

- How Human Factors can influence the development of new AI technologies

- Methods of exploring the consequences of design choices when creating AI

- What and how to teach about ML and AI in Human Factors education

- Sociotechnical impact of ML and AI: algorithmic fairness, bias,
discrimination, trust, & transparency

- Human-centered interactive AI-enabled products
