On December 4, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Autodesk AI: Assistant for Architects :

I think the way in which Autodesk positions itself in the architects’ workflows is clever-they tow the line that they are not supplanting the architects’ creative processes but rather enhancing it and helping them reproduce it at scale. But I think that it is only a matter of time before Autodesk gets to know architects’ aesthetics so well that its begin to manage its own creative process.

Has there been major organized pushback from architects yet?

On December 4, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Digital Diagnostics – The First Autonomous AI Healthcare Diagnostic :

Interesting stuff. I wonder at what cost though doctors are willing to pay for efficiency? The incentives of the health care system reward doctors for frequent visits, and this model threatens to disrupt that. Also, I wonder how this technology will attempt to build trust with patients?

This post makes me happy that I left my job doing software development, most recently front-end, for HBS. If Relume continues to scale, I’d probably be obsolete by 2025. I wonder how much the work of Relume will creep into not just software engineers, but also product and UI specialists as well?
Also, I wonder if Relume has made any decisions regarding how they will think about transitioning their services into the metaverse (if it is even called that). A lot of UX/web designers are being forced to consider how their work applies in these virtual universes, and it’d be interesting to see how Relume expands?

On November 8, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on AptDeco’s Phygital Platform for Sustainable Interior Design :

I am SUCH a HUGE fan of this company. But interestingly, I’ve never bought items on the platform for a similar reason to David-bad review;I’ve used it only for apartment styling advice. That’s a testament I think to the platform’s influence over me (and a lot of millennials) that isn’t particularly monetizable.

On November 8, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Toast Inc, The Restaurant POS and Management Platform :

Good stuff! This semester, I’m actually working on an IP that explores SMB financing, and I’ve talked to several proprietors of restaurants who are always cash-strapped. It seems like a lot of them establish relationships with local banks for financing, and prefer the long-term relationships they have with bankers. I wonder how Toast Capital will disrupt this because while the capital deployment is faster (it seems), the capital is much more expensive.

On November 8, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Hungry? Lazy? DoorDash is the one-stop solution to your problems. :

This is great! I think one thing I’d like to learn more about is how Cheryl Young thinks about investing in things, like impact, that are not quantifiable. It’s pretty clear from this that the bigger a platform grows, the more impact the platform has. And I wonder, without quantification, how she thinks about choosing future investments.

On October 18, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Behind the Controller: How PlayStation Mastered Data Analytics :

Good stuff, Wabantu! I’m really curious to see how future data privacy laws shape the industry, especially as the number and types of appeal to which gaming appeals, grows. PlayStation relies heavily on data collection to incrementally improve its UX, and I wonder if the effectiveness of their iteration will be severely limited in the coming years.

On October 18, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Disney’s Magical Big Data Transformation :

Good stuff! It’ll be really interesting to see how the war for wrist space ends up and how the outcome of that war impacts data science. On the one hand, I think people’s wrist space exceeds their attention spans, so wearables, provided that they are visually appealing, might grow in popularity. On the other hand, people might feel more surveilled by wearing a bunch of items that record information about them.

On October 18, 2023, Aliza Ohnouna commented on Carnival Corporation: MagicBand 2.0? :

This is great, Sreeni! I find it interesting how Carnival has constructed a data platform and redefined its brand around Medallion. I’ve never taken a Carnival Cruise, but it seems to me like what used to characterize the cruise-ship experience is fundamentally different when wearable, data-collecting technology is offered to passengers. In addition to the very reasonable privacy concerns, I’m interested in learning more about how the Medallions were marketed to clients.
