AI Use Taxonomy: A Human-Centered Approach

As artificial intelligence (AI) systems continue to be developed, humans will increasingly participate in human-AI interactions. Humans interact with AI systems to achieve particular goals. To ensure that AI systems contribute positively to human-AI interactions, it is important to examine human-AI tasks with an emphasis on human goals and outcomes.

The AI Use Taxonomy aims to provide a flexible means of classifying how an AI system contributes to an outcome. The taxonomy sets forward 16 AI use “activities” which are independent of AI techniques and domains. Tasks are combinations of one or more AI use activities. Future research includes applying the taxonomy to better understand measurement challenges for each activity.
