Making AI Work: The Generative Edge in Workplace Productivity

We're diving into the transformative role of generative AI in the workplace and examine if and how it impacts business productivity.

Some of the questions we explore are: Should managers be unleashing the power of generative AI on everything in sight, or should they take a more measured approach? Does ChatGPT merely augment human capabilities or is destined to replace us? Is there still a role for human intuition in the AI era? And, can Sean do mental math?


In our discussion, we draw on the following studies:
