About Todd Nilson
Thanks for the share @Darren. I've been increasingly involved in discussions about AI and other disruptive technologies. The potential for good is at least as great as the disruptions to business as usual. I do not think that most smaller organizations have fully understood how much of an advantage technologies like AI will provide to large enterprises that can invest in the latest tools and approaches. The augmentation of human workers with AI assistants that can tirelessly process large amounts of data and make decisions with increasing accuracy will make even the largest organizations at least as agile as small companies. When that advantage of smallness goes away, it feels to me like we will have some serious upheavals.
On a less gloomy note, my hope is that there will be many startup organizations that build and distribute AI-engines that will be affordable and easy to integrate into smaller business operations that will level the playing field.
At any rate, the element of this that interests me right now is the talk about how employee "reskilling" needs to happen. What skills will be needed to adapt to having AI-driven intelligence engines at our beck? More data analysis training?
I'm very much looking forward to the rest of your series, Max.
