“Could you ever fall in love with a robot?” I asked during my speech and a lady piped up “No, but I married one” 😃

I am speaking a lot these days about the normalisation of non-sentient assistants or AI CoPilots. We will be developing some form of relationship with these supporters in the very near term. As humans we have a tendency to anthropomorphise things close to us (eg. thinking of our dogs as “fur children”) – the same with machines. Using a couple of quick videos, in 90 seconds yesterday, I had an audience of 350 cheering for the machines to beat up a human – how is that even possible – that’s not a storyline in any Hollywood movie. We are in for interesting times.

Speaking in NZ yesterday, I did emphasise:

AI won’t take your job
Someone using AI will take your job

The machines cannot do everything we can do. There is still a critical element of humanity required in almost every job. We need to focus on the distinctly human elements of what we do & use AI to augment us. That way we can level-up the value we provide our customers/stakeholders.

The Breakthrough Lawyer Program can help you navigate the future of law. All lawyers are welcome to join the new fully-online Breakthrough Lawyer 6 week course I am leading at Bond University. I am joined by global general counsels, heads of global firms and brilliant technologists – to help lawyers grow as legal leaders and innovators in their organisations. Learning to master AI tools like ChatGPT is just one of the modules.

Limited to 30 spots (6 already taken and we have not started the marketing campaign). Join the course and learn the right level of anthropomorphisation of ChatGPT. Money back guarantee on that 😃
