How to celebrate 200 episodes?
With 200 facts, stats and some hot takes.
TBH, we’re not gonna try and recap each and every important aspect from today’s show.
Mainly because that would take like 50,000 words, and this newsletter is supposed to be a short and helpful resource.
So instead, we’re gonna break down the 3 most important topics and trends from the hour-plus deep dive that was today’s show.
And we’ll give you some related watching and listening for each.
1 – GenAI move fast 🏃♂️️
Looking back at our 100th episode seems like the dark ages. What’s changed?
There’s billion dollar lawsuits, new technologies and GenAI juggernauts have come and gone. (Literally)
The only constant in GenAI is the speed at which it moves.
Luckily, we’re legit here every (week)day keeping you up to speed.
2 – We all need GenAI education 🧑🎓
Let’s start at the top -- actual AI education is needed.
There’s a problem in Generative AI.
The smartest people in the world are building it. Buuuuuuut, for the most part, we have a bunch of 20 year-old ‘influencers’ who are teaching it.
But we’ve taught thousands of business leaders in our live courses about GenAI basics. And to be honest, sometimes we’re a bit shocked when we see the companies of people who attend.
We’ve been told countless times that GenAI education is one of the biggest threats to businesses — all companies know they need GenAI to stay competitive yet there’s legit no good place to learn.
3 – All companies should use GenAI ✅
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it before.
Generative AI isn’t a phase. It doesn’t follow the typical hype cycle. Sorry Gartner.
Generative AI is here to stay.
Does your company use computers?
Does your company use the internet?
If you answered yes, then your company will need to make a quick pivot to GenAI.
Or, if you really need some rocket fuel to catch up and keep up, you might wanna check this out.
