Generative AI is everywhere. With big players like Microsoft, Amazon and scores of others introducing intelligent applications that help people assimilate ideas faster than ever before, there's no question that this will radically change productivity in most fields. While my professional interests centre around how it will change HR, I find I am also tremendously excited about its impact on my day to day. Will it cut my tasks in half so I can spend more time on what I'm most interested in? I confess, ready or not, I am intrigued and ready to experiment now that “the genie is out of the bottle” as McKinsey's Lareina Yee puts it. This write up and Podcast series from McKinsey earlier in the year offers some interesting perspectives on both these areas including the benefit and of course some of the risks we need to be mindful of as we all learn “on the job” how this technology will change how we work and collaborate.
