Popular research tools already using AI

A couple of high-impact, AI-powered research tools we think you need to know about right now include:

Synthetic Users

Tired of searching for human participants within a small budget while juggling your research commitments? Synthetic Users is still in beta, but it offers exciting benefits. As the name implies, the software connects you with synthetic participants to test product-market fit and anticipate your audience’s needs. 

It might sound a bit like a Black Mirror episode. Still, the opportunity to use synthetic participants has huge benefits.

Remember that the insights aren’t derived from real-world data (but that is a huge advantage for data privacy). 

Instead, the data gets generated artificially, simulating and predicting a relationship between two things—such as a user and a product. 


Uizard lets UX teams create mockups quickly by:

  • Scanning your sketches to generate designs and wireframes

  • Turning your screenshots into editable designs

  • Using text prompts to create mockups 

  • Drag-and-drop modules

  • Collaborating with your team and stakeholders in real-time

Spending less time on the initial design stage means that you’re likely to identify a flop before you waste too much time and money on it. Or, if you identify a winner early on, you’ll know to prioritize it and build the whole design.
