Can thought leaders use AI in an authentic way? Introducing The AI-Powered Thought Leader

Can thought leaders use AI in an authentic way? Or is that a contradiction in terms?

The reality is that just like in every other field, AI’s integration with thought leadership is inevitable. It’s more a question of how it happens, rather than if it happens.

You might not be concerned about AI making your ideas obsolete.

But you might be concerned about the fact that AI can spit out really high quality content in seconds.

What then becomes of the human journey, and the intellectual labor creating and cultivating these insights? Is our role to be reduced to that of curator or editors of machine generated content and machine generated thinking?

I’m excited to share the trailer for my new show “The AI-Powered Thought Leader”! I’m going to speak with experts in thought leadership and in AI. The show will cover practical issues, I’ll demonstrate some of the tools I use myself and talk to others about the tools that they’re using, and we’re going to explore the cutting edge of technology that’s coming online now. We’ll also cover the more difficult questions about ethical implications, intellectual property, upholding authenticity, and the future of thinking itself.
