I've noticed some fundamental misconceptions as I've observed the dialogue around AI, particularly models like ChatGPT. Critics argue that AI cannot work back from a conclusion, such as writing a joke or crafting a piece that is exactly 74 words long. But let's pause for a moment. If I were to ask you to write a 74-word paragraph on a given topic, wouldn't you draft, redraft, or even count your words as you go along? That's a form of iteration, and AI can do the same.
I've heard it said that ChatGPT often gets things wrong. But think about it, don't you make mistakes too? Your first thoughts aren't always your best, right? That’s why you brainstorm, iterate, and refine. We can ask AI to do precisely the same.
The fact is, AI is a work in progress, just like you. The iteration that drives superior results is within our programming reach. Organizations like OpenAI are already embedding this next level of sophistication. And this extends beyond text – images and videos are part of this frontier.
But here's the crucial part. Don't find comfort that AI sometimes appears as fallible as you are. Instead, understand its potential and its trajectory. It's not about resisting the 'AI over-hype but rethinking and repositioning your stance.
AI's evolution is a call for you to upskill and innovate continuously. It's a wake-up call, a reminder that complacency isn't an option in this AI-first world. Your career and expertise all depend on how well you adapt and evolve with AI.
So, start today. Ask yourself, where are you in this AI-infused landscape? How can you leverage AI to benefit your career or business?
Remember, in an AI-first world, it's not about being replaced; it's about readiness to co-exist, innovate, and thrive.
