"Don’t think features, think user needs." - cool
Cliché. Soon, AI will kill the UX profession and I kinda like that.
Please explain how that will happen?
Isn't that obvious? Every heard about Adaptive UX? Deep learning + 30 years of user behavior available as digital data for analysis (also as realtime infrastructure) = superior solutions that do not require hundreds of unprofitable UX Designers. The design will survive but more as an art discipline, however, that's another topic.
I'd love to read up on any sources you have to back that up.
I don't have anything specific, that's my personal opinion based on 15+ years of experience in this field. But you can check: https://openai.com/https://design.google/library/ai/https://algorithms.design/ (This is more about design in general) https://www.awwwards.com/AI-driven-designhttps://uxdesign.cc/how-ai-will-impact-your-routine-as-a-designer-2773a4b1728c etc.
The thing with advice is, either it's specific and that means it will only apply to a small percentage of situations; or it's general and it becomes so vague as to be meaningless. Guess which category this falls into…
EDIT: after reading it more that was probably a bit harsh, those are good pieces of advice for beginners. Although my comment does apply to a lot of UX writing more generally…
Hey Sacha, thank you for your comment! With an interview like this, the goal was to relay 'bites' of information only. As much as I don't like general advice myself, I thought this could at least be helpful to beginners and to those interested in finding out more about UX bites.
TLDR - be professional.
