Hi Wilhelm,

Thanks for reading and pointing out this pertinent problem.

Indeed I’m not sure if the wireframing and prototyping tools out there has advanced to catering for AI yet.

In the case of Lo-Fi wireframing I guess text to indicate a dynamic navi menu or layout element, combined with sample content in various scenarios, is enough for the client to understand the concept.

To build prototypes with dynamic functionalities I can only think of Axure. But again as I’ve mentioned in the article, it requires you to “think like a programmer and draw like a designer”. Other than beautiful graphics, you must imagine how the UI elements would respond in different scenarios and then program a set of logic into the display options using the Axure functions.

This is easier said than done of course. In future I think UX would increasingly involve the tech folks right from the start rather than just clients and UX/UI designers as is the case now. Or it could be that even UX/UI designers for web and mobile could become like product designers and architects, who are trained in both art and engineering, so that they can be creative but still into account practical aspects for building the end result.

Bottom line: It’s time for many UX designers to upgrade themselves in order to be leading the way for the AI era of products and solutions!

Cheers,

Lance
