This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-2-17-23: Humans v. AI: How Can We Compete?

Written by

As the use of Artificial Intelligence increases; the race is on for humans to redefine themselves and their professional expertise.

That's the word from author, organizational Psychologist, and Artificial Intelligence expert, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, and the topic of his new book, "I, Human: AI, Automation, and the Quest to Reclaim What Makes Us Unique".

This topic took on increasing urgency this week, as journalists from the New York Times and Washington Post testing Microsoft's new AI-powered BING search, and Google's new "BARD" AI-powered search, discovered both glaring innacuracies, and experienced bizarre, even frightening interactions. 

But that's just the tip of the iceberg. What happens when AI can replace people in jobs that at least so far, have been immune to automation, like doctors, lawyers, journalists, and other "knowledge workers"? How will people still be able to make a living? What will happen to our economy? What happens to the very fabric of our society?

Listen now, to find out what we can do to stay relevant, keep our jobs, fight misinformation, and generally reclaim all that we are absolutely about to lose, in the age of ever more powerful and ubiquitous A-I.
