“Often the parts that seem boring to a manager are actually kind of the fun parts for a worker.

“Involving people in the process, asking them, ‘which parts of your job can be augmented, how would you like to be augmented in your work?’ rather than just imposing the stuff from the top down seems to be a better path.”

- Kevin Roose, NYT tech columnist & “Futureproof” author

“We saw people using GPT-3 as a satirist, as a customer service agent, as a poet, as a software engineer.”

- OpenAI Senior Vice President of Research, Product & Partnerships Mira Murati

Imagine an almost magical machine that can write anything you tell it to. How would that change your business?

Meet OpenAI, whose long-term goal is “discovering and enacting the path to safe artificial general intelligence.” So, machines that think enough like people to be generally useful but not so much that they want to take over the world or make TikToks.

To be clear, we’re not there…

Highlights from our conversation include:

“I’ve found in my change management attempts, not all of which were successful, that trying to explain how the AI does it is a mistake. To a business audience, you simply need to present what it does.”

If in order to drive a car you’re required to understand how it works, you would never move it.

“The AI element that comes into VR is by bringing avatars to life when there’s no humans behind them.”

This week’s guest is Paul Ford, CEO of the insurtech company Traffk. Highlights from our conversation include:

“Even many data scientists, especially insurance actuaries, have no clue what AI is, or machine learning.”

We don’t believe that AI and machine learning will lead to a dystopian future where agents don’t exist or underwriters just don’t exist.
