Although AI has been around for years, only in the past few weeks has it gone viral. You know it's relevant once it's in a Dilbert comic
Most of the business owners I've spoken with recently have been fascinated to hear about the game-changing implications Generative AI (ChatGPT, DALL-E 2, etc.) will have on almost every job function we have. The emergence of this technology has been considered Code Red for Google and Microsoft recently announced that they may invest $10 Billion in OpenAI.
There is a sense of urgency here to get up to speed, but don't take my word for it, here is what Darren Hardy had to say about Generative AI: The advent of Generative AI is bigger than the invention of the Gutenberg Press x 1000. No joke. And we are only at the very beginning. It is important that all our leaders start familiarizing themselves with these tools... so they can learn to APPLY them and USE them... versus being sidelined by them. This is not a threat; this is an opportunity!
It's like the difference between a human WITH the internet (and all the applications built on top of it) at their disposal... versus one without it. One will be left in the "Dark Ages,"... and the other will be part of a new era of Enlightenment. Again, not joking, not hyperbole.
AI won’t eliminate all humans… But it will eliminate humans who don’t use AI.
It's not how AI makes things better for business leaders... It's what new capabilities AI will give business leaders.

“This technology makes me feel the same way as when I first used iMovie and when I first held an iPhone in my hand,”
“ChatGPT gives you an incredible starting point to get you from zero to one, so that you have something to poke at,”
Follow up your queries with things like “can you say that in under 100 words.”
“It’s a tool where we can advance things that are on the back burner. It provides baseline copy and we can modify it from there. It’s a critical tool from the administrative side of things to make it more efficient.”
How Generative AI is being used in interesting (terrifying?) ways
There is no way that this can be used for good. Makes it pretty easy for anyone's voice to be impersonated
Mind blowing that this is possible... and you might actually learn something from "Steve's" excellent answers
