AI 5 years ago vs today

AI tools and information!

As AI advances at an unprecedented pace, there's a growing sense of urgency about its impact on jobs.

What can we do to stay ahead of the curve? When the AI fire hose is on full blast! Here are some principles for humans to consider as we continue exploring AI.

๐Ÿ”ย Your domain experience is the unlock; remember, AI is sometimes confidently incorrect! You need to be able to query the tools, so pick a task or problem in your area of expertise so you can call bull Sh*t!

๐ŸŒ Human interaction and connection will only become more precious as meeting in person becomes a premium build relationship. I predict that the physical world will become /even more valuable in the long term, and people will need to connect in more spaces.

๐Ÿคย Trust is the new currency in the age of AI. Your word and reputation are more valuable than ever, so build your brand and establish and maintain a rock-solid reputation!

๐Ÿ’ป The Future of Work? I think jobs created by computers for computers (i.e. SEO) for information are the most impacted first. As AI advances, many jobs once considered safe from automation will become vulnerable, especially roles that handle large amounts of data. So, stay adaptable and agile to future-proof your career!

With these trends in mind, the future still looks exciting and full of potential look at the glass ๐Ÿฅ› half total. So, embrace the possibilities and keep pushing forward to create a better, more connected world with AI!

Five years ago, WOW, Yes! In 2018 at Linkedin.com, I made some predictions! While I wasn't too far off, I could never have predicted the explosion we're seeing today and its impact on underrepresented groups; if you are interested, see belowโ€ฆ
