Three Simple Steps to Kickstart your AI Journey Today

Three Simple Steps to Kickstart your AI Journey

By Tela Gallagher Mathias , COO and Managing Partner, PhoenixTeam

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, we started our AI journey because we saw both opportunities and threats to our business. So much more than staying relevant, we want to lead the change that is coming with the commonplace availability of the awesome power of generative AI. As I say often, we want to be the change we want to see in the world. That’s why I co-created PhoenixTeam almost a decade ago. We started this company to create a place and a culture we would want to be a part of.

You may be wondering where to start your AI journey. Here are the three things you should literally do today.

  1. If you haven’t already, create an account with chat GPT and run the peanut butter and jelly experiment from our last post. Be smart guys, don’t put anything confidential or proprietary in there. Unless you are using a team account, OpenAIuses what you put in to train its models.
  2. Reflect on what this means to you and your business. Ask yourself – how does this technology apply to my business?
  3. Make a list of three people you need to talk to that can help you figure out what you are doing today that leverages AI.

AI technology has been around for decades, just not at the scale you see today, so don’t worry – you are probably doing more than you think. Using optical character recognition (OCR)? That’s AI. Robotic process automation (RPA)? Yes, that’s AI. Chat bots? AI. You get the picture. Tell us what you find out.
