ChatGPT's joke of the week:

Why was the wine glass perfect for the AI?

Because it preferred its data to be in "small bytes"!

How Generative AI Will Disrupt Knowledge Work

My latest article:

Imagine the high-stakes world of knowledge work, where every decision matters, every process is crucial, and every insight is valuable. Now picture it supercharged by generative AI - an emerging technology poised to transform industries across the spectrum. It's a tool that sifts through vast amounts of data and generates new insights, streamlining decision-making and innovating traditional processes.

The applications are limitless: From detecting banking fraud with speed and precision to predicting consumer trends in the CPG industry or accelerating drug discovery in pharmaceuticals. But this new realm also calls for caution. As we navigate through the promises of this technological advancement, we also encounter ethical implications and potential biases.

Therefore, integrating generative AI into knowledge work requires a keen balance - leveraging its power to drive efficiency and innovation while ensuring its responsible and ethical use. The future of knowledge work is at our fingertips and is remarkably intelligent.
