Could be the biggest change since point-and-click
lastly For months, OpenAI, and ChatGPT in particular, has shown what’s possible with a user interface built on top of a large language model that can answer questions, create code and images. That alone is noteworthy, but talking to the AI also allows you to interact with and tweak the byproducts. This is truly amazing, but think how transformative this is when applied to everyday enterprise applications.
Instead of building an interface on top of an existing application and pointing and clicking, simply ask the computer to perform a task based on the application’s underlying model or your company’s model, and do it. What if you could? internal language model.
This would be a giant leap in computing. The biggest leap ever was in 1984 when Apple introduced the graphical user interface. This interface slowly started to shift away from the command line approach, eventually going mainstream with the release of Windows 3.1 and later Windows 95 in the early 90s.
There have been other UX attempts, such as voice interfaces such as Siri and Alexa. They have brought some changes on the consumer side, but they are not quite the same as computers creating jobs for us. Find some answers and possibly just run a simple command.
It certainly didn’t change the way we work. It is a true measure of whether a new computing approach is truly transformative. Instead of explicitly telling the system what to do, if you could simply enter an action like ‘help me onboard a new employee’ or ‘create a monthly income statement’, it would It’s a fundamental leap forward in UX design.
Generative AI has the potential to do that, but like anything else, designing these new interfaces in an elegant way will require a certain amount of creativity, so bolt on the old point-and-click interfaces. It doesn’t feel like it’s locked in. You will also need a more focused and large scale language model.
