##### Motivation / Abstract
Product and Design Leaders who consistently design and build great products over time are said to have great "product sense." Product sense is simply the ability to consistently design and build for value. More than ever, Artificial Intelligence needs product sense. AI cannot figure out what problems to solve. If as Product and Design Leaders, we are not aligned with a human need, we build a very powerful system to address a very small or perhaps nonexistent problem. We have a unique and tremendous opportunity to shape a more humanist and inclusive world in concert with AI, and it starts by remembering our roots: finding and addressing real human needs, upholding human values, and designing for augmentation, not automation.
