The writer of this blog post would want to say “No AI were harmed in the making of this post! 😊”, but it assisted him a lot in terms of giving a structure to the content of this post and some new ideas. Should he feel guilty or should he feel happy? Has he stolen ideas, or has AI helped him with his productivity? These questions are matters of ethics, which has also been covered partly in the post you are reading right now.

Technological landscape has been evolving rapidly, and AI has its stamp as a reshaping force for both societies and industries. In the face of that truth, there are simply 3 strategies to choose between: Neglecting (Denial), Panicking (Paralysis), or Embracing. The following part is all about Embracing.

First and foremost, and way before embracing AI, what should be embraced is lifelong learning. Relentless upskilling and reskilling are essential to remain relevant because AI is here to disrupt traditional professional roles, but AI is also here to help you and your organization in upskilling and reskilling. MOOC platforms like Coursera and Udacity offer courses in AI, however before jumping into the world of courses, Henrik Kniberg’s video on Youtube named Generative AI in a Nutshell is pure gold as a starting point. In this video, Henrik explains related concepts with ease, gives a general overview, and shares his tips on how to start and where to start.

In addition to embracing lifelong learning, fostering a culture of creativity is vital. Whether AI can replicate human creativity or not is still a question mark, yet by embracing a culture of creativity and innovation, AI can be used to help organizations streamline processes and reduce wasteful non-value adding activities. Thus, right focus is created and more time is spent on innovation. A self-lubricating system.

Ethics is another important area of consideration because AI has now been becoming increasingly integrated into the psyche of social life, and that reality brings some important responsibilities. In order to ensure that AI serves the common good, robust ethical frameworks which cover privacy and issues of bias should be created.

In conclusion, the right mindset for individuals and organizations to thrive in the Age of AI lies in embracing lifelong learning, fostering a culture of creativity, and developing robust ethical frameworks. Harnessing AI to build a more creative, sustainable, responsible, and inclusive future is possible. Approaching AI as “Intelligence as a Service” rather than a threat will create the difference.
