Human conversations with grids of numbers – Glenn Jones

The rise of large language models signals a new era in machine learning. Yet, these grids of numbers, while impressive, offer a faltering facade of true human communication. Past research reminds us that conversation is a beautiful, chaotic, and profoundly human tool that resists easy replication.

However, there is a seed in generative AI of something to come: tools that can generate individualised and ethereal interactions. Emerging reasoning capabilities that can interact with the experiences we have built for humans, which act as agents on our behalf. These systems hold the promise of eventually working in collaboration with us, through our greatest tool – spoken and written language.

In this talk Glenn will explore possible AI driven user experiences. What will be the place for graphical interfaces in a world of conversational AI? Will chat UI design patterns prove to be just a passing adolescent phase – something we’ll all soon look back on with a wry smile.

About Glenn

Glenn Jones is a tech founder and advisor with a passion for seamlessly blending UX design, product leadership, and strategic thinking. He led the design and product function in the start-up he co-founded, working for clients such as The Guardian, FT and Washington Post.

Unconventionally, he has in-depth expertise across many different fields of the digital industry. His mind moves from data, coding, to considering UX, all while strategizing product commercialization. You might find him doing all of these things at once. After being involved in two successful tech exits, Glenn spends his time researching AI and advising high-growth teams.
