How can AI help to automate PM tasks? In this episode of the Product Divergence series with Ubiety Technologies CPO Nacho Andrade, PM Exercises and Product Monkey AI Founder and CEO Bijan Shahrokhi speaks on how AI can help automate manual tasks for product managers and improve the clarity of product requirements. He explains how his company uses a combination of logic and AI to extract design files and automatically generate engineering tickets and requirements documents. By automating PM tasks, AI will enhance rather than replace product management work by helping PMs produce higher quality documents and focus on strategic decision making.
