In case you’ve missed it, 2023 has become the year when automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) started displacing cognitive and creative work. Chat-GPT, DALL-E and other tools are becoming ubiquitous, so this week we’re asking how L&D and HR should respond. 

To answer this question, Owen and Ross D are joined on The Mind Tools L&D Podcast by Ashley Recanati, author of AI Battle Royale: How to Protect Your Job from Disruption in the 4th Industrial Revolution. We discuss: 

  • where the lessons of previous industrial revolutions apply to this one 
  • how ‘knowledge workers’ can adapt their job to work with AI tools
  • the role of L&D in preparing people for the AI revolution. 

Ashley’s book is available from Barnes and Noble:
