This week’s digest
The AI hot topic was regulation - most notably, Italy has banned ChatGPT as legislators try to keep up, fearing AI is moving too quickly.
This week’s newsletter includes some great reads on:
Why we shouldn’t fear AI
What things AI won’t change (and how recruiters can lean into that)
Why recruiters should Zag whilst others are Zigging
The question ‘Is corporate recruiting doomed?’
Recently, I have been playing around with Midjourney, a generative AI tool, which will take a prompt you give it and create an image in any style you want (I went for Disney here!). I wanted to create a fun image that represented what we do at Metaview (The AI-generated interview note-taker).
I called this piece: “Let the AI take your interview notes for you” 😅
Please share this newsletter with your networks if you think it valuable. We’d appreciate it greatly. 🙏
This week’s digest
In a recent article, Josh Bersin explores why the world seems to be afraid of AI, despite its potential to improve our lives in countless ways. He discusses some of the common misconceptions about AI and the ways in which it can actually benefit us:
AI is not going to steal all of our jobs; it is actually more likely to create new jobs and enhance our existing ones.
“The age of AI will unleash one of the biggest new markets for talent we have seen in years.”
The fear of AI becoming "smarter" than us and taking over the world is unfounded, as AI is only as intelligent as the data and algorithms it is trained on.
There’s a conception that AI will create misinformation and amplified bias. Bersin argues that many social media platforms are currently used for this purpose (e.g. Facebook, Twitter), and humans are more biased than machines.
“As for bias, I would suggest that humans are the most biased of all.”
While it's natural to feel some apprehension about new technology, it's important to approach AI with an open mind and focus on the ways in which it can enhance our lives, rather than the potential risks.
➰ Zagging when others are Zigging (Tim Sackett)
In the midst of all the GPT and AI hype, let's not forget the value of human connection. Sure, tech is cool and will change the game, but there's something special about real human interaction. Just like frequent flyers appreciate a dedicated hotline, employees and candidates deserve a more personal touch too. So let's embrace the "Zag" - blending tech and human interaction to make experiences even better.
“Human connection is the luxury of the future.”
Change is coming, and during times of change, it’s important to identify what is going to stay the same. Metaview’s co-founder Siadhal runs through his hot take on what will stay the same, and why it’s important to lean into these things:
AI is not curious
AI is not strategic
AI is not emotional

📉 Is Traditional Corporate Recruiting Doomed?
(Future of Talent)
As work evolves rapidly, creativity and problem-solving skills are surpassing the need for deep expertise. AI tools, like Chat-GPT and Bard, are transforming professions, including recruitment.
According to this piece, corporate recruiting is not doomed, but it will require more use of technology and focus on creativity, innovation, and strategy. When adopting technology, time is not our friend, so early investments pay off the most. Early adopters and innovators always win.
