Every product will contain some form of AI going forward. This poses two challenges for product teams: how to work with AI and how to work if there is AI.
How to work with AI
There is a big UI shift away from menus towards more prompt focussed applications. What are the new patterns that teams need to learn?
How to work if there is AI
Copilot is writing 40% of the code that people write. Generative UI apps are able to create Figma editable mockups from prompts. How will the roles within a team shift when AI’s can start taking on more of the work.
