It’s everywhere in 2023. The most powerful acronym known to humanity.
We can’t avoid it and we’re destined to spend our lives with it.
So what exactly does AI mean for all of us?

In this special live-recorded episode (split into 2 parts) I chat with AI enthusiast and analyst, Frank Mendoza, the founder and Managing Partner of Catalytics. We discuss how entrepreneurs and business owners can utilise the power of AI to increase workflow, the impact of AI on the creative industry, AI-generated poetry, and potential challenges, such as bias and creative copyright issues. We also touch on tools like Obsidian and Roam, highlighting AI’s applications and the uncertain future we face in this AI-driven world.

Our chat was recorded during the third of my open• sessions – a series of 12-hour Zoom conversations where people can drop-in to talk and meet others who are like… or differently-minded.

We also opened up the ‘floor’ to questions from others on the call.
