Refuting Letter To Delay AI, Starbucks Faces Congress, Pew Research On American Work
In this week’s podcast I discuss the open letter signed by Elon Musk asking researchers to “pause” the development of AI, the explosive meeting between Howard Schultz and Bernie Sanders, and an amazingly important new study by Pew Research on the state of American Work. As you’ll hear, I make an argument that all this AI development is extremely positive and that we really have no choice except to push ahead as a society.
The Starbucks story is well worth listening to because it exemplifies the enormous power employees have over employers, and why you cannot let your employee experience problems get away from you. And as you hear more about the Pew research on American Work you’ll learn more about why trust, growth, and your relationship with co-workers (your company culture) are the top issues to address health, wellbeing, and happiness in the United States.
As always, I welcome your feedback or comments. (apologies for the slightly funky sound this week)
