During the last decades, automation systems have replaced human work in many tasks, with the aim to improve productivity and to avoid potentially repetitive and dangerous tasks. While successful in many applications, increasing automation has also raised concerns regarding situation awareness and automation awareness of the users of such systems. In the future, it is expected that an increasing amount of work will be done as co-operation between humans and increasingly autonomous systems that typically apply artificial intelligence (AI). The use of AI, and especially machine learning techniques, brings further awareness-related challenges both for the designers and users of these systems. In this paper, we discuss the concept of artificial intelligence awareness (AIA) from the perspective of machine system design. By following a typical product development workflow, we introduce selected AIA-related challenges to be addressed in different phases of the design process, and discuss the implications of these issues for introducing AI-enabled systems in work environments.
