AI Applied: Woodwork
The following is a future historian’s view of potential events that might occur today or in the near future. It is intended to give some insight into the potential uses, applications, and consequences of the use of AI in the marketing industry and beyond.
In 2024, the AI named book – converter was launched and consumes over 10,000 texts overnight. Each text became its own app that could be searched and utilized by the user however they needed
One of the books was called Ted’s woodworking. Rather than simply looking up useful plans for items that could be built the app first force the user to fill out a short questionnaire about their wants needs and expectations.
For example, a user could specify which pieces of wood they had available, the tools they had available, and their previous history in woodworking based on this information, the app would then propose hey series of projects that could be used to create items with the resources available.
The real benefit of the process was that it broke down the barriers between learning a lesson and taking action. Historically, when trying to get into woodworking, a novice maybe stops by the need for specific materials, specific tools, and a general understanding of woodworking or the skill in question.
The plans that were proposed based on the user resources were not simply step-by-step instructions, rather they were displayed in the preferred learning method of the user. While one user may get a detailed video tutorial created specifically based on their available resources, another user may instead get a PDF-style manual with the same instructions, the key to making the app useful for both the vendor and the user is that these materials would be automatically generated based on the information in the original book in the resources of the user.
Further instructions, in regards to the dimensions of the item being created, will adjust based on the amount of wood, time, and skills of the user
