Mike & Amit Talk Tech

It's hard to argue that generative AI won't improve productivity in the long run.

You only need to ask Chat GPT a few questions to understand how fast it can pull together disparate facts, help you structure a workday, or simply find you a recipe. Early studies are backing that up too. A recent review by Harvard University and Boston Consulting Group showed that consultants using large language models were around 25% quicker at completing tasks.

But what might that mean for the global workforce? Some have already welcomed AI into the office, giving machines administrative tasks and finding more time for creative and rewarding work. But many others worry that advanced AI will replace them.

In this week's episode, Mike and Amit discuss how much of an impact generative AI will have on the global economy and how long it will take for change to come.
