In this takeaway episode, I reflect on my conversation with Paul Roetzer, founder and CEO of the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Institute (MAII), from episode 88. Paul discusses the potential of AI and its impact on our midlife careers, emphasizing the need for education and upskilling. He also addresses ethical considerations of AI and shares his educational resources.
AI is not going away: AI is accelerating at “the speed of sound.” We’re already using AI in software like Gmail, Outlook, and in recommendations by Amazon, Netflix, and social media feeds.
AI’s impact on careers: Paul suggests that every knowledge worker will be impacted by AI. Ignoring AI could be career limiting or even detrimental.
AI in various fields: AI can potentially assist in fields like healthcare, guiding surgeons to perform procedures with optimal outcomes. In writing, AI can help generate ideas or story outlines, though it currently lacks the ability to replicate human emotion.
My Challenge to You
Experiment with AI, at a minimum with ChatGPT to learn how you can use it. Study how AI is being used or might be used in your industry.
If you’re a business owner, discuss with your clients how you can use AI in your service or product delivery.
