1. Artificial Intelligence AI

In last month’s newsletter, I talked about Bing and its use of Artificial Intelligence and chat query and prompts. I have been attending several events about ChatGPT and will be showcasing my perspective on it at the Melbourne Career Expo on 15 July 2023 and the Australian Childcare Alliance Early Learning Leaders Summit on 18 August 2023.

I have worked in both the analogue and digital world and there are key principles that we need to understand to use AI tools, particularly in relation to careers and business. Interestingly, I don’t see it as a huge ‘jump’ despite its astronomically fast uptake, but let’s remember the value of all humans as we integrate it into our society. Let us all be good shepherds of our fellow humans.

9. Musing

New beginnings. Here in Australia, it is the end of the financial year. Endings can be therapeutic. When we wrap up the past and prepare for our future. What could a blank fresh page look like for you? What would you like to include in your future? What would you like to leave behind? Take a moment to pause and reflect as too often, we rush on with the busyness of our lives.

Enjoy the rest of your day and cheers for now, Sue
