AI won’t take your job but someone using AI will take your job.
AI is a major topic of discussion today. Debates rage about the ethics, the potential for human extinction, obliteration of the workforce and plenty more between AI sceptics and AI believers. The variety and pace of development of the technology is unparalleled. It’s almost impossible to keep up.
Greg will share his thoughts on why AI has huge potential to augment human activity, think Iron Man Suits, Not Terminators. He will also show you, with live and interactive demonstrations, some of the ways you can use existing AI tools to improve your work life. Today.
Greg Baugues (pronounced ‘bogus’) has spent 2023 exploring AI and its applications, sharing his thoughts at Haihai.ai after serving as Director of Developer Relations and the Community Teams at Twilio.
Prior to this he worked in various roles at a software consultancy called Table XI in Chicago. He has Type II Bipolar and ADHD and has been writing and speaking about mental illness in the developer community, ever since he lost a coworker, Caleb Cornman, to untreated mental illness. He moved from Chicago with his wife, daughters and dog, to Brooklyn in 2016.
He has spoken at Business of Software Conference on the topic of mental health and what companies can do to support their employees in difficult times. He is the only person to have ever received a standing ovation for their talk.
