The process of application modernization consumes the effort of software development teams charged with upgrading legacy applications to modern technology, architecture, and design. While some tools exist to aid in these efforts, the modernization of an application’s user experience is an arduous and primarily manual undertaking. Through a process of user research and design exploration, we investigate how generative AI models might be used to assist software development teams in modernizing the user experience of legacy applications. Our goal is to identify opportunities for further research to aid teams involved in user experience modernization efforts.
