Artificial intelligence (Idea Coach) embedded in a do-it-yourself research platform ( was used to jump-start the ideation issues involved in weight loss. Rather than brainstorming about relevant questions to ask, a potentially lengthy process, the user posed a detailed question to Idea Coach. The question posited the existence of three yet-to-named mind-sets of people involved in the search to achieve healthy weight loss. For each undefined mind-set the AI was instructed to give the mind-set a name, and answer questions about what would interest the mind-set, what types of questions would the mind-set answer, etc. The extended instructions generated clear, testable ideas, similar at the surface level to what might be discovered by a researcher. The approach provides a new way to generate critical thinking about new topics in a way that is simple to do, very fast, and inexpensive.
