AI Megatrends: Beyond Chatgpt: How AI Is Redefining Your Industry, Profession, Company and Career: and What You Need To Do About It!

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • There are several ways to understand the impact of AI on your company, industry, association, or profession. As the saying goes – it’s pretty certain you won’t find your job being replaced by AI, but it might be replaced by someone using AI!

    That’s why strategic clarity on the impact of AI is necessary, and Jim Carroll can provide you with a highly customized keynote presentation that will examine several issues.

    Top of mind is the impact of ‘Generative AI technologies’ – the fast-moving trends involving ChatGPT and other generative technologies involving voice, video, and more; the impact of productivity, workflow, and other software-based opportunities built on top of these trends; and other new tools, products and search engine technologies. All of these trends will come to change the nature of the way we search, learn, interact, and think. It’s a new era of human-knowledge augmentation that is coming about through the emergence of personalized knowledge butlers; an acceleration in just-in-time knowledge through on-demand knowledge robots; the arrival of the always-available knowledge servant.

    Another way to achieve strategic clarity is to go further and consider the “AI Megatrends” – the far-reaching, transformative, and disruptive AI concepts involving such things as predictive diagnostics, autonomous technologies, and machine vision, the hyper-connectivity of intelligent devices, the integration of AI into robotics and virtualized digital twin technologies, workforce, and process augmentation technologies, real-time risk monitoring, product reinvention, and transformation through embedded AI, and so much more!

    The end result of both these major developments is sweeping change in every industry such as: changing the way we diagnose and treat medical conditions; how we assess and underwrite insurance risk using sophisticated AI risk management tools; how we manage our march to precision farming using AI-driven autonomous technologies; how we are using AI throughout retail and manufacturing for deep supply chain analysis and inventory management.

    What you need RIGHT NOW is highly relevant AI Megatrends guidance from a realistic, strategic business perspective.

    Jim will help you understand:

    • the AI Megatrends that are already underway, and those that are yet to come
    • the disruptive and transformative context of these trends in your industry, profession, or association, based on up-to-the-minute detailed research specific to your requirements
    • why the ‘era of acceleration’ with AI will now challenge all your assumptions about your future
    • the strategic opportunities that exist with AI within your industry and organization, on a near, medium, and long-term basis
    • the significant challenges and risks that exist for the same time frame
    • what leading innovators and competitors are doing to align with these fast-moving trends
    • what actionable steps you can pursue so you can prepare a concise strategic plan for your organization and team

    Futurist Jim Carroll will help you cut through the noise and the hype to understand what is really happening, and the critical nature of the important trends that you must pay attention to!
