AI Mania. ChatGPT vs. Google Bard vs. You. Who Will Win? Do We Care?
This podcast is a review of last week’s massive set of announcements from Microsoft and Google about Chatbots. Rather than try to summarize what you’ve already read, I spend time talking about the implications of all this. Here are a few highlights:
Is Microsoft’s statement that “search will be reinvented” really correct and could this disrupt Google? Lots of problems with that theme, and I’ve seen Bard. It’s good.
What are the implications of ChatGPT and Bard on jobs, roles, and the technologies of HR? Many things to discuss here.
What will ChatGPT and Google Bard do to consumer behavior and the massive advertising and SEO markets? Publishers are freaked out but should they worry?
Is this another “automation eliminating jobs” technology or not? As you’ll hear, this is an “augmentation” technology and yes, it will force us to think about where we add value.
Finally, what about the AI Mania taking place in the stock market? Not only are AI companies suddenly worth more money but it’s now becoming impossible to buy a .AI domain name.
I don’t have all the answers but I’ll explain what’s going on.
