How will AI change leadership, a talk by Olgierd Swida (EP 85).
The third tsunami of technological revolution is happening right now. The first happened in 1980 with personal computing, the second brought the world together in the 2000s and the third relates to AI/ML. Every day we hear about new areas being affected by AI. Will AI affect white-collar workers like automation affected blue-collar workers? Should we be scared of AI? Should we ignore it? Should we embrace it?
How will impact will AI systems that can autonomously learn from datasets have on leadership? What challenges and opportunities will they generate? Will AI replace modern leaders? If so, when?
We will look at the leadership and the state of AI/ML technology today, and will place some bets about the future. We will explore the general dynamics of the technology industry in the last few decades and the business models that were successful, and will speculate about the future winners of the AI/ML revolution.
