AI First Software Architecture – Adam Loving's Blog

🌈 Abstract

The article discusses the transformation of Edgar, a passion project, into Picco Systems, an AI-first software architecture that aims to revolutionize business software development. It outlines the key elements of this new architecture, including a functional programming model, a skill library, extensive prompt-chain skills, and self-improving capabilities.

🙋 Q&A

[01] AI-First Software Architecture

1. What is an AI-first software architecture?

  • An AI-first software architecture is a new approach to organizing code that maximizes the use of large language models (LLMs) to handle customer requests and tasks.
  • It is a shift from previous design patterns like "Model View Controller" and "mobile-first" towards an architecture that is centered around the power of LLMs.

2. What are the key elements of Picco's AI-first architecture?

  • Functional Programming model: Everything is a "skill" (a self-descriptive function with clear inputs and side effects) rather than objects.
  • Skill Library: A library of skill templates and examples that serve as building blocks for generating more code.
  • Extensive Prompt-chain Skills: Using LLMs to perform various programmatic reasoning tasks like summarizing text, writing, answering questions, etc.
  • Self-Improving: The ability to generate and improve existing skills through "writeSkill" and "reviewSkill" skills.

3. What is Picco not?

  • Picco does not currently do browser automation or serve as a software development tool.
  • Picco is not yet an autonomous agent that can directly satisfy customers, as it still relies on human coaches to translate customer requests into skills.

[02] Future of AI-First Architectures

1. What other key elements and design patterns do you think will emerge as application architectures evolve to incorporate AI? The article does not provide specific predictions about future design patterns for AI-first architectures. It invites the reader to get excited about defining a new AI-first architecture and apply for positions at Picco.
