As technology becomes more advanced and saturated in various industries, the role of design becomes equally significant. Traditionally, human-centered design (HCD) has been the main creative approach for the design decisions in numerous applications. However, the role of HCD within the technology raises concerns. This paper examines the design philosophy of the HCD in parallel with rising technologies, specifically artificial intelligence and machine learning systems, and explores the implications of utilizing a more dynamic approach. With HCD, much of the considerations are determined through user research; the dynamic HCD approach is introduced to accommodate the different units of analysis presented by advanced technologies to create more streamlined designs that support and accelerate technological innovation.
