AI Fluency: What’s Coming For My Job?

It may feel like we’ve hit ‘peak AI’, but the transformation has only just begun! This session will be a live recording of the AI fluency sprint, with special guest host Rae Johnston from Queens of the Drone Age.

Experts from the University of Sydney and Deloitte will discuss the state of AI. Large language learning models like ChatGPT and image generators like Stable Diffusion give us a glimpse of how versatile and far-reaching these foundation models can be.

But how should businesses, organisations, and the people who work for them, prepare? It involves knowing how AI works, what it can do, and what that means for the future: being AI fluent. As the saying goes – AI isn’t coming for your job, someone who knows how to use it better is.

We’ll discuss the ethics of AI and how to design work so that people collaborate with AI (and not have their jobs ruined by it). And this session will also cover AI strategy: how can you use AI strategically in your life or your organisation?

The transformative technology of the 21st century has arrived: are you ready?
