The Role of AI in Business

AI has had a lot of hate recently, but honestly… I think it does have a space to play, it'll never replace “human to human interaction” – but I think it can make things just that little bit easier for many of us!

Jonathan Stewart:

There's been a rise of AI tools, such as Jasper that

Jonathan Stewart:

can write entire articles for blog posts and do quite a lot of things.

Jonathan Stewart:

Now I use AI tools in my work, and I've seen quite a lot of

Jonathan Stewart:

hate on how these tools are used.

Jonathan Stewart:

Usually with a little bit of virtue signaling to boot.

Jonathan Stewart:

Now without a doubt, human to human communication will always beat AI.

Jonathan Stewart:

That isn't really a question.

Jonathan Stewart:

No matter where we go in the next 10 years or so, or how good it becomes, it

Jonathan Stewart:

doesn't have the context or enough of the context that we as human beings do.

Jonathan Stewart:

But that doesn't mean we can't use the tools at our disposal.

Jonathan Stewart:

The tools are never the problem.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's the person using them and how you use them!

Jonathan Stewart:

The way that I use them is to write conclusions and intros to my work

Jonathan Stewart:

because in case it's not obvious.

Jonathan Stewart:

I'm a little bit verbose and getting me started on conversations.

Jonathan Stewart:

I just struggled to finish.

Jonathan Stewart:

I'm also someone who has ideas that spawn from other stuff.

Jonathan Stewart:

I write, for example, this episode spun out from something I spoke about

Jonathan Stewart:

in an entirely other podcasts where I spoke about automation, but I digress.

Jonathan Stewart:

I will probably return to automation in another episode.

Jonathan Stewart:

One of my personal traits means there are two parts of any task that

Jonathan Stewart:

I honestly really struggle with.

Jonathan Stewart:

One starting something and two finishing something.

Jonathan Stewart:

Because of the ideas that spawn off another, I can't really see the

Jonathan Stewart:

boundaries where something finishes and where something new starts.

Jonathan Stewart:

It means that my content can get long rambly.

Jonathan Stewart:

And I often end up repeating myself.

Jonathan Stewart:

Now, when I'm having conversations with people, I have some feedback back and

Jonathan Stewart:

forth, and I can see that and use that.

Jonathan Stewart:

But when it comes to creating content that is published without

Jonathan Stewart:

the actual one-to-one communication.

Jonathan Stewart:

Creating short summaries or respecting the time of you lovely humans.

Jonathan Stewart:

I need a way to have a nice tidy beginning and end.

Jonathan Stewart:

It doesn't require another person on the other side.

Jonathan Stewart:

To help with this I use AI.

Jonathan Stewart:

I generate a conclusion once I've written the vast majority of what I want to

Jonathan Stewart:

say but I don't just use it verbatim.

Jonathan Stewart:

I often use it as a prompt as a way to help me write a

Jonathan Stewart:

conclusion that sounds like me.

Jonathan Stewart:

I do the same with introductions or catchy titles, because, so help

Jonathan Stewart:

me creating catchy titles drives this context, driven human crazy.

Jonathan Stewart:

Chances are, if you ever got caught by a random post of mind, due to,

Jonathan Stewart:

a catchy title it's often because I based it on some AI generated title.

Jonathan Stewart:

Sure.

Jonathan Stewart:

It's not perfect and it needs a tweak, but it's a start.

Jonathan Stewart:

And often I can edit it to make it sound more like me.

Jonathan Stewart:

I just need somewhere to begin.

Jonathan Stewart:

AI's can't really replace humans but what it can do is support you

Jonathan Stewart:

to do the work you love while making things just a little bit easier.

Jonathan Stewart:

We all bombarded by hundreds of things we are expected to do.

Jonathan Stewart:

Each day and yet it feels like sometimes we're not able to do stuff that can help

Jonathan Stewart:

us because of the opinions of others.

Jonathan Stewart:

But sometimes it's about understanding what you want to do and are trying

Jonathan Stewart:

to achieve, instead of starting from the opinion of others.

Jonathan Stewart:

Start from you.
