The (U)X Factor: How to Build Lasting LLM-Based Products Amidst Rapid AI Innovation



In a rapidly evolving landscape of highly capable large language models (LLMs), building competitive products in the space feels increasingly challenging. In this session, we explore key features of successful LLM-based solutions from a product and design perspective along three axes: First, we take a birds-eye view, discussing how to identify and build up differentiating factors (moats) that turn an application from “yet another summarisation tool” into a lasting, valuable solution. Next, we zoom in on the product and user level, looking at UX design strategies for cultivating trust and simplicity in the face of a hyped and partially misunderstood technology. Finally, we wrap up the session with actionable product management tips and tricks for guiding and de-risking the development of user-centric LLM-based tools.
