Miro is among the platforms that I feel has been actually inventive about the way it’s incorporating AI. I created a dependency mapping on a Miro board to assist assume by a brand new software program system. The thought was to visualise direct and oblique dependencies, and refine the connections between them.

This has lots of worth for software program and product groups that must do dynamic brainstorming and thought improvement.
