Tips for Utilizing AI in Brainstorming

AI can enhance your brainstorming sessions in several ways. To get a better result, here are some tips for utilizing AI tools to boost your idea generation:

Do research ahead of time

Before meeting to brainstorm, have each participant research the topic using AI-based tools like UPDF, Google Scholar, or industry reports. Come prepared with insights to share, which can spark new ideas in others. The more knowledge everyone brings to the table, the more creative you can be.

Generate prompts with chatbots

Use a service like UPDF AI to generate thought-provoking prompts. Have each person enter a few words related to your brainstorming topic and see what kinds of questions and suggestions the AI comes up with. These can get your creative juices flowing at the start of the session.

Use AI to make unexpected connections

Feed your brainstorming topic into the AI tool. It will provide a list of semantically related terms, concepts, and ideas. Look for surprising or unconventional connections the AI makes these can lead to innovative solutions or products. Capture these in your idea list.

Get an outside perspective

Explain your brainstorming objective to an AI system and ask for its input on possibilities you may not have considered. Its "outsider" perspective may suggest options you would never think of, which can open up new avenues of discussion. Treat the AI as another participant offering a fresh take.

The Benefits of Using AI for Brainstorming

AI-powered brainstorming tools are changing the game. Using AI for ideation opens up whole new realms of possibility and creativity. Here are just a few of the major benefits:

Expanded Capabilities

With AI, you have an intelligent system at your disposal that can make unexpected connections and associations you may never think of on your own. The AI has been trained on huge datasets, identifying patterns and relationships you can tap into. This exposure to diverse concepts, topics, and ideas expands your brainstorming capabilities.

Unbiased Suggestions

AI provides impartial input, unaffected by preconceptions or assumptions. Its suggestions are based solely on making the most relevant connections and associations. This can help reduce anchoring bias and open you up to concepts you may have otherwise overlooked or dismissed.

Continuous Ideation

Brainstorming with AI allows for an open-ended, ongoing ideation process. At any time, you can input additional keywords, concepts, or seed ideas to keep the discussion going and build on what you already have. The AI is always ready with more suggestions to spur new thoughts and connections. This continuous ideation can lead to increasingly innovative outcomes.


Using AI for brainstorming, whether through a chat interface or voice-activated assistant, provides an opportunity to take a fresh look at challenges and uncover innovative solutions. There are many tools available for you to brainstorm with AI. However, UPDF's AI Assistant should be your first choice as it is free to start and has all the features you need.
