Quotes From This Episode

“Artificial Intelligence is nothing more than software that does two things really well – recognizes complex patterns, and it automates actions, decisions, or recommendations based on these patterns.”

“When we talk about leadership plus artificial intelligence, something that is worth exploring is how can leaders prepare their teams? How can leaders understand when it’s appropriate, where it can be used, where it might not work, or where it might need additional human support?”

“I’m a person that believes strongly AI needs to become boring for it to become useful.”
