As more generative AI tools are developed and layered into existing software packages and technology platforms, we’ve learned that there are several different use cases available—each with unique strengths and characteristics. Generative AI has the potential to change the shape of our workforce, and this type of transformation will require us to think differently about the skills needed for roles we have yet to define.

Generative AI (Gen AI) is a type of AI that can create new content and ideas, including conversations, stories, images, videos, and music. This extraordinary technology enables us to reimagine what’s possible, not only for individuals and businesses, but every aspect of life. Gen AI has the potential to have a tremendous influence on the world as we know it.

This session, led by Melanie McGrory will discuss how we can adapt to these developments and more. The session is perfect if you want to reimagine the future with Generative AI, consider the impact this will have on the way we work, and understand what we need to do to support the generation of people that will follow us.
