used AI to summarize a podcast.

That’s correct. We have evolved from…

“Nobody has time to read a five-minute newsletter,” to…

“Everyone has time to listen to a two-hour podcast,” to…

“Podcasts are too long so let’s use AI to summarize them as text that can be read in five minutes.”

I can only assume that the next step is to convert the text-based podcast summaries into new podcasts so that we can listen to them as a way to save time.

Nobody knows where all this is going. But you do need to get your hands on this stuff and try it for yourself.

Because it is most definitely coming.

And whether it directly affects your job or not, the more you know, the more opportunities you will notice and the more threats you will see coming.

Recommendation if you have yet to do anything with AI: Open up a ChatGPT account here (it’s free, although I recommend the $20 a month paid version) and just start fooling with it: chat.openai.com

Your future self will thank me.
