Why critical thinking an important skill in the age of AI.

April 29, 2023 /Business/ — It will require critical thinking and systems thinking to get the most out of AI tools. Being a Prompt Engineer will become a great skill to have in your toolbox. Prompt engineers simply need a decent level of language and grammar skills, data analysis, and critical thinking.

Prompted Critical thinking is the key. AI generators are not designed to assess the veracity of text they input and output. Nor are they intended to use any sort of critical thinking, which is why jobs that require critical thinking are not about to be replaced by Generative AI.

You don’t need to memorize – it’s time to focus on real-life skills, critical thinking, and emotional intelligence. The critical thinking required to enter a prompt and use AI tools effectively is worth training for – not the memorization of information. Continue reading

Which types of jobs are threatened by AI and automation?

April 28, 2023 /Economy/ — Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that is capable of generating text, images, and other content that is indistinguishable from human-created output. This technology has the potential to automate a wide range of tasks that are currently performed by humans, including customer service, data entry, and even creative writing.

The Goldman Sachs report predicts that generative AI could automate 18% of work globally, with the effects felt most deeply in advanced economies. This is because advanced economies tend to have a higher concentration of white-collar jobs, which are more susceptible to automation. Continue reading
