6. NVIDIA sees $200 billion in market cap erased 🧑‍💻

NVIDIA Loses Most Valuable Company Title �*

NVIDIA's reign as the most valuable publicly traded company was short-lived as it shed $200+ billion in market capitalization, losing its top spot to Microsoft amid market turbulence.

The drop in NVIDIA's shares was attributed to the triple-witching event, impacting various stock options and contracts set to expire. Analysts predict a 7.2% expected move post-triple witching for NVIDIA and other market indexes, signaling potential volatility in the coming week.

As we approach the end of the second quarter of 2024, eyes are on how these market dynamics will unfold in the AI industry.

Google NotebookLM: The Evernote Killer?

Google hinted at NotebookLM being an Evernote killer.

But how true is that statement?

Is Google NotebookLM a groundbreaking tool we've been waiting for, or just another app in the sea of productivity tools?

We had high hopes. Buuuuuuut we were kinda bummed with the results.

🦾How You Can Leverage:

A secret weapon of AI? 

We can use it to break things in business that are probably better off broken. 

Jason Feifer gave us the winning game plan on how to use AI to break things that are already broken, helping us all usher in an era of better businesses. 

Jason is not only the Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, but also a keynote speaker, consultant and startup advisor. 

In other words, he constantly has his finger on the pulse of how the business world is using AI. 

And his advice for GenAI goes beyond the typical push for productivity and less manual work. 

(DUCK! Golden nuggets incoming!) 

Jason says we should use AI to break things. 

So much of the time, the business world just operates like clockwork – do what has always been done. 

Repetitively. 

Don’t fix what’s not broken. 

Mundanely move forward. 

Incremental ticks forward like the never-stopping hands on a clock. 

Generative AI can be like an innovation hammer – breaking the clock that signifies the constant humming of yesterday’s business world and signaling an exciting new era of how we get work done. 

Ready to break things with AI? 

Frick yeah. 

Us, too. 

Let’s get smashin and highlight the 3 takeaways from our conversation. 🔨

1 – Break old business with AI 🛠️️

Jason told the story of lawyers kinda concerned about ChatGPT and billable hours. 

At a speaking event, he was taken aback by the amount of lawyers asking him about ChatGPT. 

Why were they asking? 🤔

They weren’t stoked about growth. 

They were scared of efficiency. 

To them, Generative AI making their industry more efficient meant fewer billable hours. (i.e., less money.) 

That’s how to use AI to break things that are ALREADY broken, Jason said. 

Jason keyed us in on what the future of the business world may be.

Either industry giants can change the way they’ve always operated, or smaller competitors will slingshot to the front with AI. 

Try this:
Another ‘AI needs to break this broken thing’ gem that Jason dropped: education. 

If the higher education world is so worried about students using ChatGPT to write their papers, then maybe writing papers as a mechanism to measure learning might be a bit archaic? 

Luckily, we’ve got a solution for that one.

Check out this episode (with a different Jason) where we broke down how to fix the broken world of education.

2 – Don’t AI microwave everything ♨️

Throw anything in the microwave, and it automatically gets warmed up. 

But, you shouldn’t throw anything in the microwave.

Jason likened AI implementation to using a microwave. Just because you can sprinkle AI on something, doesn’t mean it’s a panacea.

Like raw chicken in a microwave. 

Try this:
We get it. It’s legit (nearly) impossible to keep up with everything GenAI.

It’s so tempting to AI microwave EVERYTHING. 🤷

Instead, you can simplify your work life and make One Thing Better with Jason’s weekly newsletter that focuses on (you guessed it!) making One Thing Better in your work and personal life.

3 – The lump of labor fallacy applies 💼

When we think of AI and job disruption, we have to broaden our thinking. 

And with recent tech layoffs hitting hard in 2024, we’ve gotta shift our viewpoint on the labor market. 

Jason explained the lump of labor fallacy, and how we can’t look at future economies as a set number of workers with a set number of jobs. 

Jason kept it real, acknowledging some jobs will be lost but others will (eventually) be created. 

Maybe AI displaces 10 jobs today. And maybe there’s not 10 new jobs tomorrow. But eventually, there will be. 

Try this: 
Job creation isn’t a zero-sum game. An AI-powered economy is dynamic and constantly creating new verticals in old sectors.

Check out this article that details the lump of labor fallacy as it pertains to AI.
