The Employer Branding and Generative AI webinar illuminated key insights, offering a glimpse into a future where human potential seamlessly integrates with AI advancements.
AI is NOT your creative director. AI is your intern.
Paul Baier, CEO – GAI Insights (US) and Author at Harvard Business Review emphasized the responsible integration of AI within organizations. He urged caution against promoting those who haven’t embraced AI, suggesting an experimental approach using ChatGPT for job descriptions. Baier framed AI as more than a tool but not as the replacement of a senior creative executive. AI is your intern.
An intern can save you time if you give a detailed brief, Paul Baier underlined:give them a task, but check it as if they were an intern, improve it, send it back with another task and check again. The key is to check frequently, because although your AI intern can be a great help, it is fast and efficient, but for now AI is still at a trainee level so the right guidelines can help a lot.
How fast is AI spreading? Like no other platform in the history. (time to reach 100 million monthly active users)
