Great episode of the TWIML+AI podcast on the use of AI in niches with significant domain expertise. The go-to example was creating new types of glass, like Gorilla Glass. Fields where AI can find novel solutions or expedite the R&D process while the human experts weigh in on what’s possible or has already been done.
Especially love this quote from the end:
If you really want to go deep, merging domain expertise and AI/ML expertise, if you can merge those effectively, you can have a super powerful tool that’s really differentiated from what anyone else has.
I think this is an extension of the centaur concept. Also feels like the precursor/initial iteration of a potential future where we all have personal AI assistants/friends/extensions.
