AI Mastermind for the Enterprise

AIMsupes forblog

A tsunami of digital change is coming. A recent study released at the World Economic Forum predicts that 85 million jobs will be displaced through 2025. This level of disruption will be almost three times greater than COVID... with the difference being that jobs lost to COVID were eventually regained. The majority of the jobs lost to AI will be permanent. This could trigger another recession and exacerbate income inequality. Especially if companies do the equivalent of hoarding toilet paper in a panic.

Enterprises can do something about it – just follow this simple rule: undertake AI skills training for your workforce, 3-6 months before contemplating layoffs. This will minimize the number of employees you'll need to lay off, and it will save you money because AI-savvy recruits will be at a premium.

Why Enterprises Need to Start AI Skills Training Right Away

supes teamThe World Economic Forum predicts 85 million jobs will displaced by 2025, with the level of societal disruption surpassing the impact of COVID. This is going to be a bloodbath of layoffs, and companies today aren't likely to do anything more than the corporate equivalent of hoarding toilet paper at the beginning of the pandemic. 

Enterprises need to adopt a human-centered approach to AI deployment asap, with the very practical first step of offering their employees serious AI training well in advance of layoffs. The problem is that the cognitive challenge of acquiring meaningful AI skills is similar to that of mastering a new language... and which means it will take time, and could cost lots of money. 

And that's the problem we hope to solve with our AI Mastermind training program - it's a 10x cheaper, decentralized, scalable AI skills training solution, that leverages both AI and human EQ, to enable a strategic solution for large-scale meaningful AI skills development in the enterprise.

The Impact of Generative AI on Art and Human Meaning

robotpaintingWhat does it mean to be an artist today, when generative AI is able to create images and videos better than most artists can? To answer this question, we must look back at what art was and meant during the rise of Modernism in the early 20th century. This era was replete with scientific discoveries and technological miracles. At that time, the world was drinking from a firehose of innovations: electricity, the combustion engine, the incandescent light bulb, the automobile, the airplane, radio, X-rays… the world was changing so quickly that artists had to re-define art continuously just to keep up. Sound familiar?

The AI Hunger Games… Coming Soon to a Workplace Near You!

AIhungergames wTitleEvery CEO out there knows it’s coming. They took notice of research by ResumeBuilder, that surveyed 750 business leaders to find that 44% forecasted AI layoffs in 2024. The new research from the University of Pennsylvania that warned that nearly 300 million jobs in the U.S. and Europe face exposure to AI automation, with about a quarter of these jobs likely eliminated entirely by AI. And Google has already leaked that they’re planning to lay off 30,000 employees, taking advantage of AI leverage.

In a recent interview between Bill Gates and Sam Altman, the Microsoft cofounder expressed his concern that AI will “force us to adapt faster than we’ve had to ever before.” Altman responded, “Each technological revolution has gotten faster, and this will be the fastest by far, and that’s the part that I find potentially a little scary is just the speed with which society is going to have to adapt and that the labor market will change.”

Frankly put, this is going to be unlike anything that CEOs have ever seen; it’s going to be a bloodbath. Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera, says, “What is happening, and what is going to be happening in the next 12 to 18 to 24 months is going to be unlike anything that CEOs have ever seen. I think Generative AI will be more disruptive than COVID.”

Download: Human-Centric AI Deployment

A recent report conducted by ResumeBuilder surveyed 750 business leaders and found that 44% forecasted layoffs this year due to AI efficiencies. New research from the University of Pennsylvania warns that nearly 300 million jobs in the U.S. and Europe face exposure to AI automation... and about a quarter of these jobs could be eliminated entirely by AI. Google has already leaked that they're planning to lay off 30,000 employees. 2024 will be remembered as the year when the global AI layoff bloodbath began.

Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera, says, “What is happening, and what is going to be happening in the next 12 to 18 to 24 months is going to be unlike anything that CEOs have ever seen. I think Generative AI will be more disruptive than COVID.” And this is a dangerous in a politically charged environment.

Larger enterprises need to consider the risk of grass roots social media campaigns that might emerge to punish any large company move first into AI layoffs. In highly polarized times like these, it only takes one demagogue to get people protesting and boycotting, and next thing you know, they're chanting “robots will not replace us” in front of your building. 

So how could an enterprise minimize these risk? How can companies optimally deploy generative AI, that will minimize the human pain of the coming transition? We explored this issue and have written a white paper, titled "Human Centric AI Deployment" – which offers strategic imperatives for organizations seeking to optimally deploy AI in 2024.

This white paper the HUMAN model that advocates ethical AI deployment to mitigate against such risks, minimize human pain, and keep an eye on the ROI.
