Generative AI and large language models (LLMs) are accelerating the proliferation of applications.
Christian Kleinerman notes a surge in app development, particularly those centered on these technologies, with a growing integration of AI-based search and natural language processing in various applications. Amanda Kelly emphasizes the trend toward creating bespoke applications for specific tasks, expecting LLMs to facilitate the development and use of specialized applications. Benoit Dageville advises businesses to not only focus on AI adoption but also consider the role of applications as the interface connecting data with users, be they employees or customers.
Sometimes a quote speaks louder than a thousand words. Here’s what we mean:
“Everything is appifying,” Amanda Kelly agrees.
“And I’ve increasingly seen very bespoke applications
designed to handle a specific ETL job or pipeline
or data type. LLMs will uplevel that, making it
easier to create and use very useful, use casespecific applications.”
“The revolution is not AI, or generative AI,” says Benoit
Dageville. “It’s AI plus cloud plus applications. What
made the smartphone revolutionary wasn’t the voice
or text functionality—it was the apps.”
