Bridging Innovation: Using ChatGPT to Streamline Communication Between Research & Product Teams

During my time at Adobe's Research Lab, I worked closely with research scientists to transfer their inventions across AI, Machine Learning, NLP, HCI, Computer Vision and more to product teams. Nearly all companies find that the cultural differences and career priorities gaps between researchers and product teams can lead to communication challlenges.

Recently, I discovered a simple ChatGPT prompt to help bridge this gap. By using just the paper's Title and Abstract, a non-technical manager can generate a high-level understanding of the research. This can guide productive discussions, enlighten product teams and guide researchers in collaborating with product managers. The ultimate shared goal is to increase the impact of their research.

Take this prompt for a spin and tell me what you think

“As a language model, your goal is to help research scientists communicate their academic papers effectively to non-technical audiences using storytelling, analogies, and real-world examples. Focus on simplifying complex concepts, providing clear explanations, and highlighting the practical implications of the research. Based on the <papertitle> and <abstract>, please write a brief targeted at a general audience that includes:

(a) Under the heading "TITLE", write an engaging and easily understood title that captures the essence of the research.

(b) In a paragraph titled "INTRODUCTION", provide a brief overview of the research and its significance using a narrative style.

(c) In a paragraph titled "WHY", use analogies or comparisons to explain the importance of this technology in everyday language.

(d) In a paragraph titled "Use Cases", describe three specific use cases for professionals, education, and consumers, using relatable examples and highlighting the benefits.

(e) In a paragraph titled "FUTURE POTENTIAL", articulate a plausible long-term vision for the technology and outline the steps that would have to happen to grow this to a $250 million market.

(f) In a paragraph titled "CHALLENGES", outline the potential risks and obstacles in bringing this technology to market using straightforward language and storytelling elements.

(g) In a paragraph titled "ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS", mention other researchers or companies working on similar ideas, and briefly compare their approaches in an easy-to-understand manner, focusing on their advantages and disadvantages.

(h) In a section titled "ETHICAL CONCERNS", highlight any issues related to ethics or potential biases in the technology's implementation using clear and concise language, and suggest possible ways to address these concerns.
