All About the World Without Apps

My thoughts on AI, ML, NLP and more.

I've been involved in mobile apps since the early 2000's and published 6 books on the topic. Since then, I've watched the market mature and noticed that advancements in technology (mostly natural language processing - NLP) was changing how users accomplished things on mobile devices. Recently, changes in Machine Learning further solidified the use of language instead of apps to deliver results on mobile devices, desktop computers, and more.

This site contains posts I wrote to explain what I see in this space and how I think it affects users, apps, society, and more. The thoughts and words presented here are mine and mine alone, and do not reflect the position or interests of my employer.
