💡AI will bring the classic product manager revival
From the initial Google, Wikipedia, Baidu Tieba, to the later short videos and Xiaohongshu, they are all built on the opportunities that emerge in technological iterations.
After 18 years, such a new technology is no longer available. Product managers began to concentrate on the so-called carving work, digging out a little bit of user bonus from the corners, and squeezing a little bit of user conversion and GMV from the sponge.
But this time AI is quite different from the so-called technological innovations in the past, and it brings about highly deterministic changes. In drawing, in natural language interaction, in knowledge acquisition and information processing, they are all effective and visible to the naked eye. And this “effectiveness” is still improving rapidly.
This new technology will allow product managers to regain their residual heat, and at least there may be:
– New interactions based on natural languagea major adjustment of various products (imagine the impact of Douyin’s immersive information flow interaction on the content industry);
– New tools based on AIGCwhich is equivalent to reshaping the functions of document notes, tables, slides, drawings, audio and video clips, etc.;
– Create new scenarios based on breaking latest news. From chatting to psychological counseling, from the intelligence of game NPCs to brand-new AI-generated games, and so on.
Therefore, future pipeline-style product managers may not be able to find opportunities in the AI industry, but many old products that are silent and familiar with user scenarios, or young products with idealism and enthusiasm, will have great potential.
The point of view in this article comes from Liu Yanfeiyu
According to news on March 7, analyst Ross Young said in his latest tweet that the screen refresh rate of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models is still 60Hz.

It’s not clear whether the image shows the standard iPhone 15 or the iPhone 15 Pro, but the dark purple matte finish of the body is similar to the aluminum alloy that the iPhone 15 may use.
