Are you ready to embrace our robot overlords? Just kidding, but seriously, if you're not thinking about how AI can help your team and your business, you're missing out on a huge opportunity. As a leader in the tech industry, I can tell you that AI literacy is going to be a crucial skill for professionals in all fields in the coming years.

First, let's dispel some myths about AI. No, it's not going to take over the world and enslave humanity (at least, not anytime soon). AI is simply a tool, a way to process and analyze data more efficiently than a human ever could. And that's where the real power of AI lies - in its ability to augment our own abilities and help us do more, faster, and with greater accuracy.

So how do you increase AI literacy on your team? First, start with the basics. Make sure everyone understands what AI is and how it works, and give them examples of how it's already being used in their field. Then, start thinking about how AI can help your team specifically. Are there tasks your team handles manually that could be automated with AI? Any insights that you'd like to extract from your data but don't want to bug your dev team to pull custom reports?

Whatever your ideas, once you've identified areas where AI could help you, start experimenting with it in a way that aligns with your interests. And do this ASAP. Like learning anything, it's a lot less intimidating and much more engaging to practice your new skills on problems that interest you. For me? I've been experimenting with use cases in product development, admin tasks that bore me to tears, as well as building workflows for my creative passions. There are plenty of tools and platforms out there that allow you to dip your toe into AI without needing to be an expert in machine learning or engineering. (Insert selfish plug for ThoughtfulGPT here 😉 ) As you get more comfortable with AI, you'll develop a mental model of how it works, which you can then use to start thinking about more complex applications.

Of course, there are still some challenges to be mindful of as you experiment. It's important to approach AI with "Thoughtful" consideration (pun intended) and keep a human in the loop on all tasks delegated to AI. Also, make sure you're using ethical AI practices, and that you're not inadvertently perpetuating biases or discrimination. As AI becomes more prevalent in our lives, it's up to all of us to ensure that it's used in a way that benefits society as a whole.

So, are you ready to join the AI revolution? With a little bit of creativity and experimentation, you can start incorporating AI into your team's workflow and reap the benefits of this powerful technology!
