077: Artificial Intelligence is the New UX - Ray Wang on What Happens in an AI-Driven World
5 days ago
Artificial intelligence progresses from monitoring and notifications to recommendations all the way to automating the process. Up until now we’ve lived in a world where we’ve essentially “faked” artificial intelligence through complex rules engines, workflows, triggers and a thousand other elements, none of which work at scale.
