AI is transforming the way we work, communicate, and interact with the world. The potential benefits of AI are enormous, but so are the challenges.

Artificial Intelligence is rapidly changing the world we live in. From healthcare to finance, from manufacturing to education, AI is transforming the way we work, communicate, and interact with the world. The potential benefits of AI are enormous, but so are the challenges. To ensure that AI is developed and used in a responsible and ethical way, we need to educate ourselves about this transformative technology.

We have partnered with to bring you a learning course that will dive deep into understanding AI and leveraging its benefits for your company. Understanding the way this tech can assist your specific business problem starts with the data. Ultimately the data we use to train our AI will determine the quality of your results. AI can solve many unique challenges presented to individual businesses. It also has the potential to take on many menial tasks, allowing us to transcend AI and focus on higher strategy, higher value projects, and elevate our creativity in the workplace.  

What is AI 101 

AI 101 is an educational program designed to help business leaders understand how to integrate artificial intelligence into their organizations effectively. With the rapid development and adoption of AI technology in recent years, there is no better time than now to incorporate it into your business operations. However, for many leaders and their teams, the prospect of integrating AI can be daunting. That’s why the program emphasizes the importance of fully understanding key aspects of AI implementation, such as identifying which opportunities are good opportunities for AI and measuring the return on investment of your AI initiatives.

Integrating AI into your business can offer significant benefits, such as increased efficiency, improved decision-making, and enhanced customer experiences. But to fully realize these benefits, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of the potential risks and costs associated with implementing AI. By learning how to measure the ROI of your AI initiative before integrating it, you can ensure that the benefits of AI outweigh the costs.

Intro to Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Your Org

Empower business and technology leaders to envision how AI might concretely benefit their organization.

In addition to ROI, AI 101 also covers topics such as identifying which areas of your business could benefit from AI, understanding the different types of AI, and selecting the right AI tools and platforms for your organization. By taking these steps to understand AI implementation fully, you can make informed decisions about incorporating this powerful technology into your business and reap the many benefits it has to offer.

To tackle the challenges facing a business, it is important first to understand what those challenges are and then structure the team in a way that minimizes risk. One challenge that many businesses face today is harnessing the power of artificial intelligence effectively. AI can only be as good as the quality of the data that is inputted into it. Therefore, it is crucial to understand how to ensure the quality of the data used for AI. This course will guide you through the process of fully comprehending why data quality is just as important as data quantity and how to ensure that the data used for AI is accurate, reliable, and appropriate for the intended use. You will learn about different data quality metrics, data cleaning techniques, and best practices for data management. By the end of this course, you will have a deep understanding of data quality’s role in AI and the tools and strategies needed to optimize your data for successful AI implementation.

To effectively communicate and collaborate with an organization, it is crucial to have a proper understanding of the role of a machine learning engineer. Developing this understanding can give you a competitive edge and help you integrate effectively into the team. Machine learning can add significant value to an organization in the long term, but it is important to recognize that success in an experimental context with machine learning problems may not necessarily translate into lasting value. Therefore, it is essential to consider a broader range of factors beyond just technical expertise, such as understanding the business goals and requirements, identifying suitable datasets, developing robust models, and ensuring scalability and maintainability. By keeping these factors in mind, a machine learning engineer can help an organization derive value from machine learning solutions that are not only experimental but also sustainable and impactful in the long term.

How Relevant is AI Today?

Artificial intelligence has become increasingly relevant in the business world as companies seek to optimize their operations and gain a competitive edge. ChatGPT, a large language model trained by OpenAI, is particularly important in the era of big data as it enables businesses to process and analyze vast amounts of textual information. However, it is crucial for businesses to understand the capabilities of ChatGPT to leverage its potential effectively. Without proper understanding and management of ChatGPT’s outputs, businesses may receive inaccurate or irrelevant information, leading to poor decision-making and potentially damaging consequences. Therefore, businesses must invest in skilled engineers who can effectively manage and analyze ChatGPT’s outputs to ensure that they are accurate and relevant. By doing so, they can fully utilize the potential of ChatGPT and AI to drive innovation and success in the modern business landscape.

Facilitating with AI

As AI revolutionizes countless roles across industries, skills, and roles will shift in dramatic ways facilitation will not be unscathed. With the emergence of GPT-powered features across almost every application available, there are so many opportunities to experiment. At Voltage Control, we use Notion to collect and organize our processes and documentation. Notion’s AI features have been helpful when documenting processes or agendas. Even the “improve my writing” feature is a really fast way to condense and disambiguate, which is something we should always strive for in our facilitations. The new Bing is also a place to pay attention to. Use it to discover methods and activities. AI-powered searching allows direct access to specific results versus having to read through web pages and documents to find the stuff you are looking for. 

ChatGPT is a fun way to introduce some lateral thinking into your sessions and can be fun for the team if you set up the context and the prompt in a way that invites curiosity and play. Consider when you might have the team pose some questions to ChatGPT and how you might use the answers for provocation and debate. I can imagine a not-to-distant future where we’ll have an AI, perhaps a ChatGPT descendent, that is in the meeting listening, responding, and contributing. How will that shift how you facilitate?  What potential do you see? I’m curious to know. Let’s talk about it!
