TRANSCRIPT:

Angie 

Hey everyone and welcome to no more Mondays. I am your host Angie Callen AI Artificial Intelligence. Yes, it has finally made its way to the no more Mondays podcast. Artificial intelligence has actually been around for a little while, but it’s taking the world by storm. And it’s just a hot topic in every conversation at the moment because of that newfound accessibility to individuals and consumers that we’ve seen over the last six months. So, I want to ask you, do you fear AI? Do you embrace AI? Do you find it fascinating? Do you see it as an enablement tool? There’s a million different ways AI can fit into our lives. And we’re going to talk about it today. So if you have been sitting there asking yourself, How is AI going to impact me, my job or my future, keep listening. We’ve got technology consultant, an AI expert Manuj Aggarwal here to guide us through the transformative potential that AI has to benefit us in our businesses or careers in our lives. And I am excited to dig into this topic because it is so trending right now. And because there is so much potential there. So without further ado, let’s get this conversation going Manuj; Welcome to no more Mondays!

 

Manuj 

thank you so much excited to be here

 

Angie 

I am too and, you know, I kind of sit in, in an interesting space where I do a lot of career coaching of individuals trying to progress their careers. And then I also do a lot of coach coaching. So we’ve kind of got a dual audience here. And from a career perspective, we hear a lot about the fears around AI, it’s gonna replace me, robots are gonna be doing our job. So I’m very excited to have this conversation, maybe break down some myths and, and give everybody a little bit of a new perspective. Yeah, and I know you’ve been involved in in the AI world for quite some time because y’all this thing isn’t that new. And minutia is a heavy hitter in the space. And so I really want to know, from you, how I don’t know how long you’ve kind of been into this whole AI world, and how long is AI really been in our lives without us even knowing it? So

 

Manuj 

let’s start there. Ai actually has been around since the 60s. But really, when it started to come together, in effect was around year 2019 95 2000, something like that. Because AI basically, what it is, is it is a set of algorithms which consume a huge amount of data about real life about you know, what is happening in the world, whether data, our movement, you know, financial data, any kind of data, and it starts to understand the patterns in that data, which humans cannot do that. So around year 2000. You know, as the internet started to become more popular, we started to produce more data, and we started to share more data. And that’s why AI became much more relevant. And what happened was, you know, people like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, a few few of these, like visionaries, they started to understand the importance of this technology. And they started to build companies like Amazon, and Microsoft, and whatnot. And so it just took them about 15 years to become one of the richest people on the planet using this technology. That’s the power of this transformative technology. Me personally, I got involved in it around year 2006. So that was the first time that I, you know, started working on AI. And I was just blown away, because even though I was sort of the technical mind behind it, I never expected something to perform so much better than humans. In very short period of time, like trained professors or trained physicians, AI was doing much better job than those people. And I’m we’re talking about like, almost 1516 years ago, and today, technology is far, far, far advanced, right? So when people say, I’m afraid that AI is going to take away my job, you know, I I tell them go back maybe about 100 years before the automobile was invented. And we used to go from one place to another in horse carts. And, you know, the horse cart, person who owns a horse cart, had the same worry, oh, you know, this car is going to replace me and my horse. What they didn’t realize was that the car is going to make a you know, go make them go much faster. Plus, if they’re worried about their job, the car repair or car painting or building cars, those kinds of jobs will be much more hyping than, you know, driving around a horse cart. So the idea is that technology always always always gives you more productivity, which ultimately claim means more dollars in your pocket. So, AI is not going to take anybody’s job, a person who understands the AI will take away their job, that that is the difference we need to really understand. So if you don’t if you really want to, I mean, here are few statistics for you. And these are not my numbers, these are numbers from really significant people. So the CEO of IBM has said that AI is going to add about $10 trillion to the world economy by 2030. Okay, so that is 10,000 billion in the next seven years. And currently, today, the world economy is about 100 trillion dollars, the total world’s wealth in a year that is produced, that means more than 10% of the total world’s wealth is going to be added in the next seven years by. Right. So

 

Angie 

that’s a substantial increase in in a relatively short period. Absolutely. The prediction is correct. Absolutely.

 

Manuj 

I believe it’s even on the lower end, I believe it will be like 15 to 20 trillion. But the idea is, this is the biggest wealth making opportunity in ever, you know, because nothing like this has has happened before to humanity before. And on the flip side, the CEO of Google and many other prominent people have said that, within the next five to seven years, there will be two types of businesses, one that are using AI, and one that are no longer in business. So, and that’s also a true statement. Because think about it, like, I remember 1995 was the first time I logged into the internet, okay. And in 1998, Netscape,

 

Angie 

everybody knew exactly

 

Manuj 

Netscape, and Hotmail and whatnot. And then, in 1998, I was trying to apply for my first role, first position job as an entry level programmer. And within three years, like the world had changed so much that in 1998, if I didn’t have an email address, I could not even apply for an entry level job. So the world had changed in three years. So, imagine what kind of impact AI is going to have. And coming back to your last point, which is, has AI been all in our lives already? Absolutely. This meeting that we are recording this podcast we are recording is a result of AI, because we are talking to each other in high definition in real time. And in the background, AI is optimizing the video, the audio, so that we can hear it, hear and see each other in real time. You take out your mobile phone, your iPad, any device, everything on that device is because of AI, it’s it’s manufactured because of AI it is it got all these apps running because of AI. So when you when you go somewhere, you know, I’m terrible with directions. If I plug in my address and GPS, that’s all AI. So when people say you know AI is going to do this, or going going to do that, I just smile at them and say, okay, when was the last time you ordered Amazon package?

 

Angie 

It has, it already has exactly. Well, and I think that this is a very good, kind of like leaving off point to something I wanted to just bring up, which is the elephant in the room of chat GPT because I think that’s why it has all of a sudden made everyone so much more aware of what AI can do and the presence in our lives because it’s made it accessible to your average, your average Joe, which is what I want to get into around some like small business stuff. But before that, you know, it was you mentioned, like how prevalent it was in, you know, medical health care settings. Well, you know, that’s a really large, you know, enterprise scale use of it that unless you’re the one realizing that’s what’s happening when you’re under the knife, you’re kind of like, passively it’s in your periphery. And now it is really front and center. And so I’m curious as somebody who lives in this, this world and kind of influences AI across the globe. What do you think, Chad GPT, or, let’s just say, the generative AI models for for consumers have, done and changed for better or for worse?

 

Manuj 

Yeah, you’re absolutely right. You know, so charged up has sort of commoditized the power of AI and made it available to everyone and to everyone can like feel it, touch it and use it. What it has done is it has unlocked the barriers of our cognitive abilities, meaning our mind is only capable of learning so much. And there is so much noise in the world. You know, we get tired. We all want success. We all want lots of money and success. But there are barriers in front of us. You know, we need to acquire skills we need to learn things We need to, you know, get master’s degrees, PhDs. All of that was the paradigm before AI came onto the scene. But today, you can go to char GPT. And you can ask any questions. So char GPT, if you will think about it, like, it is like very obedient employee who has a PhD in sales, who has a PhD in marketing, who has a PhD in history, who has a PhD in, you know, any kind of topic that you can, that you can think of, and you have hired that person, or for $20 a month, and they never sleep, and they are always available. So they’re highly trainable. Exactly, exactly. So that is the power when people realize, oh, you know, because at the end of the day, what is success success is when my, you know, like minded people come together. Even, even if you’re running a small business or a large corporation, the true wealth of any organization are the people the knowledge that they bring to the table and how they execute. And so if you can have a really efficient, knowledgeable employee on your board, and by the way, every member of your team can also have an employee assisting them. Imagine the exponential growth potential that it’s going to have. And here is another prediction I can make. In the next seven to 10 years, they will be public companies listed on stock exchanges, with one employee, which is the CEO. Can I can I be first? Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely.

 

Angie 

And I like what you said, because I wanted to talk a little bit about how we apply this to business, and you set it up perfectly. And it for instance, you know, I have figured out ways to chat GPT specifically, or if we want to call it generative AI at the consumer level, or individual level, is an enablement tool. And I think this is where a lot of people get scared that like, oh, my gosh, is going to replace me as a writer. Well, the thing about it is it you You hit the nail on the head earlier with the reason that we have these things is because we now have enough data and the ability to process enough data from a technological advancement perspective, to provide this kind of parsing. But at the end of the day, the thing only knows what data it has to access. It doesn’t have EQ interpolation, it can’t really create, it can only mimic. And so there’s still a human brain factor there. That hasn’t completely been reduced. And I know for me, I love what you just talked about as it being an employee. I feel like this is gonna sound maybe a little weird. And I promise that I am not like the opposite of that movie, her movie with Joaquin Phoenix. I feel like I have I do have a coworker now. So if I, if I want feedback on something, I could be like, hey, Chad GPT coworker, what do you think of this? And so it does kind of give me that trainable piece of of technology enables me to feel like I might have not be in my own echo chamber, which is a really interesting way to look at it.

 

Manuj 

Absolutely. Yeah. Just like, you know, you’re mentioning that you work with coaches. We are limited in our ability to understand the world based on our personal experience or some books we have read. But imagine if you’re a writer, you can go into situations where you can not imagine that situation, let’s say you you say, to charge up to I want to be in the middle of this war that happened in the middle of, you know, Middle East in 1500s. And I want to talk to that, you know, that leader of the Army, what was he feeling? What was he going through, and charge GPT will be able to give you some meaningful information that is enriching your experience that is enriching your knowledge and giving you access to things that you didn’t have before, not just not just like information, but also what kind of emotions those people were going through. And the other aspect that you mentioned, EQ, no, no amount of progress or technological advancement is going to replace that EQ. In fact, EQ is going to become the currency for the future because that is not going to be replaceable. Because, so far in our human evolution, our thinking ability has been the currency because whoever can come up with the best solutions, they get the big bucks, they get the more success, but now, everybody has the same level of I mean, you know, machines today have an IQ of 1000. You cannot beat them at the IQ level. What you will We’ll be able to beat them at is EQ and not everybody has EQ. So, I tell people that AI is pushing us towards becoming more human rather than more robotic.

 

Angie 

What a way to flip the script on that. So it by nature, now we have the ability to grow our IQ through this enablement tool, which means we should be focusing, and we have the time to focus on growing those soft and human skills that when combined with that enabled IQ, are going to make you a superhero in your in your domain.

 

Manuj 

We exactly, absolutely, you got it.

 

Angie 

That’s a really cool way to look at it. This is why I love podcasts, everybody, how cool of a thing to think about. So I’m curious, I would love just like a specific suggestion or two, on how can I as a small business owner, as a coach, I leverage the tools available right now to my advantage? How can I apply them?

 

Manuj 

Yeah, so I’ll give you a nugget that we actually share with our fortune 500 clients, okay. So the idea is that, as a business owner, or as, as, as an adult, human adult, we go through so many life challenges every day, right? So imagine, you know, if you are into philosophy, you may have heard the name Socrates, Socrates, the father of modern philosophy. So Socrates has a very, you know, simplistic view of life. And he, he really helps you understand any difficult situation, how to how to analyze it, how to get out of it, imagine if you’re able to sit next to Socrates and say, you know, Socrates, I’m having a tough time today I’m dealing with an employee who’s not performing, what do you suggest? And, and Socrates will be able to like really, in a step by step manner, give you some suggestions that you can implement today in your business, which will give you the expected outcome. Not only that, but it will make you a better human being, because you will be able to realize, what are your blind spots? So a simple prompt could be go to charge a PT and say, act like Socrates. And this is my problem, I’m dealing with the employee, or I’m dealing with my kid I’m dealing with, you know, whatever cash flow issues, whatever that problem is. And give me your Socratic questioning that I can ask myself, so Socratic questioning is a set of simple questions that you can ask in any situation, to dive deeper into the root cause of the problem. So you just talk to it and say, Okay, give me the Socrative questions in the context of my situation. And in order to add a little bit more spice to it, you can also tell chat, GPT a little bit about yourself, you know, I’m 48 years old male living in Canada, I’m in technology, I have two kids, so that it gets more context. Now. The questions that will give you it will be almost sitting, I mean, not even almost like it’s surreal, it’s almost surreal, because you’re talking to Socrates giving you advice in your particular situation. And just it blows people’s minds away.

 

Angie 

I love that idea. And this is a good because the other thing is we have to learn how to input and this is where, like the intuition EQ piece comes in, we have to almost provide that into intuition to the system by thinking about additional context to give it to pull from the data that it has access to. And I love this idea that tell it who you who you are. So I have I have a custom custom instruction set up my mind that say who I am, what I do general rules of for output and things that I want. And it’s amazing that over time, that’s where that comes back to that training piece. Like it’s a $20 a month highly trainable employee, that as you input it more it starts to learn, you learn you, and the output that you get becomes even more closely specific to what you would create on your own but no one else would necessarily be able to get that specific output. So there’s still kind of a uniqueness to what you get based on how you’re driving the system. Yeah, absolutely.

 

Manuj 

And, as you said, like, you know, treat it as an employee, treat it as a confidant, treated as a human being because even when we interact with human beings, you know, imagine you met your spouse on the first date, you will not, you will not know that person as well. But over time, when you tell each other, Oh, I like this, I don’t like this, you know, this is how I behave. You get to know that person, and now you are developing a relationship. So it sounds weird, but you want to develop a relationship with AI and sort of get it. Get it to know you. Who and vice versa?

 

Angie 

Well, it’s not going anywhere. So it’s in your best interest to figure out how to live with this stuff. Yeah, and I’m a big fan of embrace versus resist, because it just makes everything a whole lot simpler. Which brings us so perfectly to now I want to spend just a minute on the on I’m gonna say the job and the employment side of this conversation, because I think it’s really clear to say, Okay, now I get it, I can I can have a relationship with this thing, as a as a co worker, and as an as or as a as an employee in my business. But going back to something we talked about earlier, is there still that fear around AI replacing jobs? I think we touched on the fact that it’s a displacement, not a replacement. And you know, all robots are going to do everything in the workforce in a few years, kind of going back to that like horse cart scenario, right? So how did how did how does everybody out there as the driver of a horse cart right now stay relevant, so that they can then become become the driver of a car?

 

Manuj 

So few things, right? First of all, as I said, develop that EQ, because what will happen is as the job transition starts to happen, people who can empathize with others, they will be the last to be replaced, because, in fact, they will become the root of the new types of jobs, because they are the ones who can understand the human being, they are the ones who can figure out okay, this is what the world needs right now. And how can I use these technologies to provide that to the people around me, the the other thing about jobs is that I try to look at long term view of history. So if we go about 100 years back, you know, 99.9% of the population used to work in the fields for 8200 hours a week, just to put food on the table that used to be our human life, the meaning of human life, right. And then industrialization happened. And then everybody said, oh, you know, we need workers to work in the factory. So everybody started moving from the fields into the factory, but it was still like, 24/7 job. And then they said, you know, what, like, this is not working, people are not productive. Let’s come up with a weekend. And, and give two week, two days off to people. And that was like a, a new concept for everyone’s like, Oh, two days off, like, we will be able to not do anything. And now we are talking about like four days a week and whatnot. So what you can do is, as so if you plot all this on a graph, as technology progresses, the human effort needed to produce goes down. Okay, so what does that mean? People get nervous, what will I do? Well, as human beings, it’s not natural for us to spend 40 hours a week in a cubicle, that’s not how we were made. We are creators, and we are thinkers, and we are artists, okay. So what will happen is the softer side of things like the soft skills, the music, and poetry and and art, these will become the mainstream projects professionals of tomorrow. And when people say, oh, you know, this is this is unlikely, I tell them look at history, history repeats itself. In the 1500s, there was a 300 year period called renaissance in Europe, where the artists were at the top of society, they were paid the highest money in number, you know, they had the highest ranks in the court system, all of that. So, this is again going to happen, you know, that that is what is going to like, when when we get some free time, what do you think you want to do you want to go out and spend time with family you want to, you know, go out in nature hiking draw. That’s exactly what is going to start happening now.

 

Angie 

Well, I like the history repeats itself is a really important thing to think about. Because in a way, this is like industrial revolution, 2.0 it’s just the technology version of it. And the farmers adapted and became drivers of the machinery that made their their you know, harvesting easier. And then eventually that driver of the harvester went into the manufacturing line, to you know, help make those things and then maybe even moved up the ladder more to say, hey, as a as a previous farmer, I know what else we need to create to make their lives easier, and that’s where the displace versus replace is a really important thing to keep in mind and are and the way we can ensure we don’t become completely displaced is to be Old are skills as a good old sentient being. Absolutely. Absolutely. And I and I love practical advice. So I loved the Socrates prompt. So I want to give, I want to give a few more kind of little like specific tidbits that will help people start to conceptualize like, if, if you’re out there, and you’ve been super resistant, and you’re like, I’m not opening chat, GBT because they’re going to take my data. I want to give everybody like a few ways to dabble in it. So what are maybe three ways anybody can leverage current AI technology to improve streamline, or enabled everyday life and work? Yeah.

 

Manuj 

So let me quickly address the first question, which is, you know, they are going to take away my data. The problem is that a lot of people read headlines, which are meant for sensationalizing and putting like misinformation out there. So imagine there is a huge ocean and you go out there and you pour a glass of water in it, what will happen to that ocean is not going to, like make a difference at all. So whatever you are scared of that, you know, you will, you’ll put into the in charge deputy will take away your data, it’s like pouring a glass of water into ocean. It’s a drop in the bucket. Yeah. So so unless you are working on some super secretive, like, you know, launch to Mars mission. I won’t worry about that. And people who are working on that type of technology, they understand, you know, how to how to use AI, properly. So. So, the next thing is, okay, how do we use AI so treated with so the thing about any business owner is, the first thing is, if you can really understand the pain points of your customer, that really helps you to offer them the solution to their problems. And many times what happens is, as business owners, we are always sort of too occupied with our own thoughts, okay, you know, this is what I want to do, this is what I want to offer. But we forget that we are not our customers. So we want to get into the head of our customers. So now try this prompt and say, You know what, whoever your customer avatar is, like, you know, let’s say you’re serving 3535. And above single moms, who are very busy with their work, and they want to have a healthy lifestyle. So you plug that in, and then you say, Okay, give me the pain points that they are going through in their daily life. Right? Now, this will actually start to put you in their shoes, and make you feel what they’re feeling right now on day to day basis. And you can use that information now to create offers products services, that can really help solve those pain points. Because otherwise, you are going to have to have like a lot of surveys, you’re gonna have to talk to a lot of people. And in fact, I have been in the startup scene for three decades 95% of the startup, even if they are well funded, they don’t do this research. Because it’s so difficult. They

 

Angie 

build technology for technology’s sake, or they, they’re trying to create a problem to solve with their idea. And you took more like, if there’s anybody out there who has been in my build your business program, everybody, I did not tell Manouche to say verbatim, the line that I tell all the time, which is understand the pain points of your customers so that you can offer solutions to their problems. It is the foundation of sales and whether you’re selling a widget, or whether you’re whether you’re selling a service based on your you know, your brain power, if you can find a way to position that as the missing puzzle piece, it makes a huge difference to your business. So that’s just a great little piece of business wisdom from the news. And now you can use AI to drill down into it even more specifically.

 

Manuj 

Yeah, exactly. So, again, you will see that the theme here is that you can use these technologies to increase your EQ that’s what it is like increasing your EQ empathizing with other people. The next one is a very interesting one where, you know, we all have certain skill sets, and we are good at it, but business needs multiple skill sets, even the ones that we are not good at. So I’m not good at finance and managing my books and you know, sort of doing, doing my taxes, these kinds of things. So obviously, I have an accountant who helps me but then sometimes I have more questions that the accountant I didn’t get to ask the accountant because sometimes I actually feel stupid asking some questions about that. Now you can you know This is this is something to be very careful about this is where, you know, I won’t recommend you do this on your own until you understand what it is what it is that I’m trying to make you understand. But as an experiment, you can try it. What I did was I uploaded my financial data into AI. And I said, act as my CFO understand these financial statements, and give me advice on how I can save money. Give me a budget, all of that, right? And now, it actually analyzed my financial statements. And it gave me some advice that I would have had to pay like, you know, enormous amount of money to hire qualified CFO to train me, or, or to answer my questions. Right. So So that’s the kind of that’s the kind of like, expertise you can extract out of, ya know, the last

 

Angie 

key there, but the key there was, tell it who you want, like, what expert you want to talk to? Yeah, exactly. Kind of the key. Because if you just go in and say, Hey, answer this question for me, you, you’ll have some fun, but you’re probably not gonna get value information. So you can kind of you can, you can dictate, hey, I want you to put this hat on. Yeah. What’s your third tip?

 

Manuj 

Yeah, so the third one is, like, you know, we always focus a lot on text based, you know, most people think AI like this Chatbot. But the visual aspect, and humans are very visual. So I always recommend people also invest some time in learning the visual AI, which is like tools like mid journey, or dolly, three, which can take any prompt and create very engaging images. And what it does is, it’s like, opening up the creative aspect of your mind. And you can go nuts. And I mean, I’ll give you an example. When I when I created the Socrates slide, I actually created an image of Socrates and Plato and be to one and a few other like, notable intellectuals and, and said, Okay, what if they were in a room together, show me, show me how that will look like. And it actually put together you know, these these historical figures in one image, and it was so surreal, just looking at it, it sort of created that emotional roller coaster just looking at that. And when I present when I present these kinds of images, in boardrooms, people, even if they’re not paying attention, or they’re on their phone, that image gets imprinted on their mind. Because as humans, you know, we are just visual creatures. And they cannot forget that experience. Even if it’s just one glimpse of that image or something along those lines. So, imagery and visual aspects are very powerful. If you start to learn those, and you start to incorporate that in your, your, you know, whatever you’re doing, like, you know, pitch pitches or even telling stories to your kids, like when I, you know, I was visiting with my family and I have nieces and nephews. So I actually showed them some some scientific facts, but accompanied with images about that scientific fact. And they got it immediately. Because now they can visually understand what is going on. And, and they can remember the fact as well, rather than just reading about it.

 

Angie 

Yeah, most of us are visual, and it it contributes to the storytelling aspect. And we know humans love stories. That’s why we tell kids stories. And so the the imagery stuff in AI is really fun. My husband, Jim, is, is getting really, really good at it. If you if you want to check it out. I’ll give you a shameless plug. Defiance, digital media is his media site. And he, he really kind of dialed in some AI to kind of nail that branding and create some imagery that tells you exactly what you want to know. So that’s, that’s a fun tip. So we’ve got so I think there are actually four. So the first one is get over the whole data stealing stuff. Right? So, just move on. But really, there is this idea of use it to gain additional insight into your customer avatar in their in their problems, so that you have those thoughtful aligned offerings. Use it as a way to increase your EQ via the IQ it enables. And then third is don’t forget the visuals.

 

Manuj 

Yeah, exactly. You got it. You are so good. Three, you’re so good at just summarizing and boiling it down to

 

Angie 

that is t,hat is six years in 2000 resumes. That is how do I want to know what you’re excited about in the world of AI what’s coming up. What have you gotten a glimpse into that kind of has? Has you excited about things to come? Well,

I mean, you know what, this is a very difficult question because everything is about to change. You know, we are, we are using AI to teach music, we are using AI to help financial analysts provide better financial advice, we are using AI to, you know, help large corporations maintain their assets, whether we are using AI to, like help companies grow 10 times in the next two years, things which sound impossible. And they are now possible like we are using AI to detect COVID using listening to your voice. You know, you don’t have to take like that test to stick it up your nose and whatnot. Yeah, so I wish you

 

Angie 

could all see my face right now. He’s going really? Yeah, that’s that would have been great a month ago, and I just picked that thing up.

 

Manuj 

Yeah, yeah. So. So, look, the thing is that AI is as transformative as electricity. So I cannot even sit here and tell you, oh, this is how it’s going to be. I mean, I just came back from San Francisco there is there are cars in the middle of the road, with no driver in it. And you can just call them just like, you know, you will call an Uber, and they will take you around the city. And that’s it today. So imagine like, in five years, what is going to happen, here is my prediction. I think there will be laws against humans driving cars on the street.

 

Angie 

Oh, because AI will be more reliable, absolutely create less accidents, exactly. We’re gonna have to go back through, there’s like two or three predictions in here that we’re gonna have to go back through, we’re gonna write them down and put them in a time capsule. And in five years, you can come back on we’ll open the time capsule. Yeah. And now on to you as an expert. I really enjoy your perspective all at all of this because I think it really like neutralizes some of you’re 100% right on the that kind of like the phenomenon and the headlines and the shock value kind of stuff. And I like your perspective, it neutralizes this in a very realistic way that I’m hoping for all of you out there feel a little bit more comfortable with the presence that AI is going to have. So how can they? How can everybody out there tune into more of your wisdom on this? How do we find you, I know you have a master mind coming up, tell us more about how we find you and the things you’re up to.

 

Manuj 

Yeah, you can go to my website, my name is a little bit complicated. Just search for me on Google, you’ll, I’m easy to find on Google or connect with me on LinkedIn. So as far as mastermind is concerned, we are sort of, you know, bringing together more global thought leaders in AI. And so this is for people who really want to immerse themselves and get a ride in the front of this revolution. Because the people that that I have, in my circles, they are doing some amazing things like, you know, I just met the head of AI at the Pentagon, I was speaking next to the commander of the International Space Station. So these are people who have done some really, really cool stuff. And these are the kinds of people that we bring in, so that you can expand your horizons. But more importantly, just like in this podcast, get some actionable advice that you can implement right now in your business. Because y,ou know, the age of information is gone, the age of sort of implementation is coming, because AI is going to take care of all the information now, the next phase of evolution will be how how you can leverage this technology to create value in the world and be around people who are looking to change the world.

 

Angie 

That’s it, get get on the train, everyone get on the train, you will be better for it. I would say resistance is a little bit futile. And this has been a conversation to help you do just that. So this is fun. I could get out like I think this stuff is just so fascinating. It’s probably the you know, the former engineer and me who, you know, I went to I went to a super techy college that are really big robotics department. So that was where I saw what I didn’t even know was aI yet. You know, in that exact time period, you talked about late 90s, early 2000s. And I’ve always just been curious about it. And I’m so it’s so amazing to live in this time in place where we do, or we’re seeing like daily, how this stuff is improving our lives versus like, you know, the industrial revolution, it just took a little longer so we’re moving at such an interesting pace. And you’re right that exciting changes are to come up. So, I appreciate you sharing your wisdom. This has been a fun conversation. We have to have another one. When the next giant substantial change to AI comes out. We’ll have you back on until anytime, anytime. Marriage thank you so much for coming on the show and being a human talking to another human about how AI AI can make us even more human. Yeah, the bottom line here. This has got me excited to integrate some of this stuff into my life and business and I, I hope it has made all of you out there a little more curious on how you can do the same. And if you would like to link up with minutiae there on LinkedIn, get his website without having to figure out how to spell his name. It will be on no more Mondays dot info with all the show notes. And while you’re on your computer, head on over to wherever you get your podcasts and leave us a five star review. And if you need a little help writing it go to chat GPT and say, Hey, what should I say for my review on Mondays because it’s a huge help as people like Manish and I continue to bring you stories and information and empower you to keep up with changing times. So this has been an amazing conversation. MANISH, thank you again. Thank you. All of you out there listening. I will be on the airwaves again next week for another episode of no more Mondays, and until then, have a great week, everyone
