Knowledge, Learning, Community

Daniel Christian points to this LinkedIn post (may be behind a spamwall) by Santiago Valdarrama. All his examples refer to software development, but of course AI has many more applications. Not counting things like adaptive cruise control, where AI may be built into the products I buy, I use AI explicitly in the following ways:

  • Automated translation, to read content from around the world
  • Automated transcription, to create text out of my talks
  • Content organization using an AI in my feed reader
  • Removing noise from my photos

If you're not using AI, as compared to me, then you're reading less diverse sources, have to pay for audio transcription (or worse, not do it al all), take longer to sift through relevant resources, and have lower quality photos at low light. Maybe you can still out-compete me, but it gets harder.
