We’ve received a tornado watch alert…

So before one of those suckers decides to touch the ground and snatch a couple of alligators and ducks hanging out in our backyard…

Here are 1 idea to ponder, 2 resources to skill up, and 3 tools to try out.

Let’s do it.


The Big Idea

What’s more serious than the loss of jobs due to AI and automation is the loss of meaning. — Kai-Fu Lee

By labeling AI as serendipity, the speaker emphasizes that AI can bring about unforeseen benefits for humans.

AI can relieve people of mundane and repetitive tasks, create new opportunities for growth, and inspire innovations that could transform numerous aspects of our lives.

This notion highlights that AI is not an adversary but rather an unexpected, positive force that can enhance human existence.

By AI taking over routine jobs, humans can focus on areas that AI cannot reach, such as expressing love, empathy, and creativity.

This serendipitous aspect of AI can help humans rediscover their unique qualities, driving them to pursue more fulfilling and meaningful life experiences.
