The world of AI is like a battleground where while the elephants fights, the grass gets trampled. Orat least, that’s what a wise Kikuyu saying reminds us of. But while the elephants are locked in theirsilent war, something amazing is happening down in the grass.
Where are we?
Generative AI tools like ChatGPT are taking the world by storm. In January, ChatGPT reached 100million monthly users, a faster rate of adoption than Instagram or TikTok. Hundreds of similarlyastonishing generative AIs are clamoring for adoption, from Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, GitHub’sCopilot, Dall-E and Bard.
Even with a monopoly on the search engine market, Google seeing the widely adopted ChatGPTreleased their own AI called Bard. Despite Google’s efforts, Microsoft has taken the lead byincorporating ChatGPT into their search engine Bing and even into Excel and Word. With theupcoming release of Co-pilot, which claims to revolutionize productivity, we wonder how this willtruly impact workplaces around the world.
Covid normalized remote work and with the work place shifting as more Gen Z join the workforce,tools like Microsoft’s Copilot could become the norm. Having an AI assistant that helps you draftemails, memo’s and pretty much all the boring tasks with prompts might seem dystopian but ifapplied correctly could veer humanity into a new frontier.
Administration AI’s are no longer in the distant future so it’s important to learn how to utilize them.Used properly AI may reduce labour in the workplace leading to shorter workdays for a morebalanced healthier life.
While some job roles might become redundant. We may see new job roles appear such as“prompt engineer”, “content prompter” etc where being able to give the necessary specific promptsto AI will become a skill.
Our only concern, how fast companies will develop these AI with no regard as to whether the worldis ready for them. As Microsoft and Google battle to remain supreme in the AI industry how muchcare is given to the unadaptive nature of humanity?
More companies may be beginning to embrace AI and integrate it into their workflows but it’s clearthat the unscathed grass will be those who can leverage its power to drive efficiency andstreamline processes. The trampled grass, on the other hand, will be those who fail to adapt andget left behind in the race for maximum productivity.
