ChatGPT Online Morning Seminar 2023

Implications for the world of work… and YOU

The launch of ChatGPT last November served not only to highlight the rapid advances in AI, but also the massive appeal of this innovative technology. Indeed, the interest in ChatGPT is such that it took only five days to reach one million users, as opposed to Twitter which took two years, and Dropbox which took seven months. The Boston Consulting Group noted that the new wave of generative AI systems, such as ChatGPT, have the potential to transform entire industries. But to be an industry leader in five years, you need a clear and compelling generative AI strategy today.

In March, The Economist reported that the CEO of IBM has forecast that AI will do away with most white- collar and clerical workers, while the BBC claimed that 350 million jobs are in danger worldwide. It is evident that generative AI, and specifically ChatGPT, can have tremendous benefits for organisations, including increasing productivity, improving decision making, enhancing customer experience, energising new business models, improving innovation, and personalising and speeding up learning. AI could increasingly take on time-consuming information gathering and synthesise tasks, freeing up people to strategise and plan for the future.

There are risks involved in applying generative AI such as ChatGPT across organisations, however. Privacy concerns, misinformation, biases and hallucination– where ChatGPT produces arguments that sound entirely convincing but are 100% wrong – are all examples of potential problems. Risks thus need to be clearly identified and managed, including ethical issues.

Our upcoming seminar, ChatGPT – implications for the new world of work… and you, will bring you up to date with the latest developments in regenerative AI, including ChatGPT; elaborate on the implications for the new world of work and your organisation; and highlight the potential opportunities and advantages of this exciting new technology. Importantly, the seminar will also address the risks and ethical issues of using ChatGPT in your organisation.

  • HR Executives
  • L&D Practitioners

  • IT Managers
