The tenth episode of the podcast we now know and love as "We Love Ugly Data!" is out and it's a "2024 Predictions Special!".

The tenth episode of the podcast we now know and love as “We Love Ugly Data!” is out; available everywhere you get your podcasts from and, of course, in video form via YouTube (which we’ve embedded below). As always, it’s three topics in 30 minutes, but this time it’s a 2024 Predictions Special – a selection from the full-length Market Trends research paper you can now download – where Matt is joined by Alan and Dan. Show notes are, as usual, included below the embedded video.

In this episode:

Prediction 1: “Generative AI will face its first cold winter”

Matt’s up first and here is discussed the prediction that right now, Generative AI is facing up to its first cold winter, where customers try to make sense of how this much-hyped technology actually fits into the ways in which they actually work. It’s not a litany of negativity by any means; there are some real, tangible ways in which it’s being used right now (hint: it’s citizen developers again!).

Prediction 2: “For the first time in human history, machines will read and process more documents than knowledge workers.

Dan’s pitch was that we’re at the tipping point where machine reading of documents will overtake that read by human beings, in large part as the current wave of IDP hits organizations.

Prediction 3: “Knowledge Graphs and Data Meshes gain traction”

Last up is Alan and he’s picked out the prediction that Knowledge Graphs and Data Meshes (and Data Fabrics for that matter) will accelerate in terms of their adoption in organizations as they attempt to coalesce their internal information, not least as its one of the significant predicates for the use of AI.

Prediction 1: “Generative AI will face its first cold winter”

Our recent post regarding whether we should care about the chaos at OpenAI.
A post from Matt pleading with us all to look for the real-world place for AI and to ignore the rest of the noise.
….and finally, Matt’s view about how we should be planning for a metered future for generative AI.

Prediction 2: “For the first time in human history, machines will read and process more documents than knowledge workers.

Here’s Dan writing back in May about the 4th Age of IDP
