    Is ChatGPT Going to Steal Your Job? (Thinks Out Loud Episode 371)

    Is ChatGPT Going to Steal Your Job? (Thinks Out Loud Episode 371)

    I’ve said for years that AI won’t steal your job, but that smart people who put AI to work will. But is that still true? With the emergence of DALL-E, Stable Diffusion, and especially, ChatGPT, aren’t at least some jobs at risk? There’s evidence that ChatGPT can get its MBA, do well on medical exams, and pass the bar. Surely, that means it’s ready to start taking all our jobs away, doesn’t it?

    Well, maybe. But I’m still not convinced. Smart people who use AI — and, in particular, tools like ChatGPT — remain a much bigger threat than AI or ChatGPT alone.

    What makes me think that? Why am not too worried about ChatGPT stealing my job — or yours? And, exactly how confident am I about that? That’s what this week’s episode of Thinks Out Loud is all about.

    The Future is Already Here (Thinks Out Loud Episode 370)

    The Future is Already Here (Thinks Out Loud Episode 370)

    It’s tough to predict the future. What’s much less tough is "predicting the present." There are lots of "future trends" that might be a big deal… or might fizzle as mere fads. But, there’s an easy way to figure out which is which for your business: Test.

    In reality, the future is already here. Many of the trends that might shape our future — AI, machine learning, the metaverse (at least in the form of augmented reality), web3 — already exist in some form or other. And, if you follow a "Core and Explore" process, you can test and see if there’s any value in these for your business with relatively low risk — and relatively low investment.

    So, what does that look like? How can you test which trends matter effectively and efficiently? How can you learn which parts of the future are already here… and which might not matter? That’s what this week’s episode of Thinks Out Loud is all about.

    The Most Important Trends in Marketing 2023 (Thinks Out Loud Episode 369)

    Happy New Year, Big Thinkers! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are getting geared up for your best year ever. To help you prep for the new year, I thought it made sense to look at the most important marketing trends you’re likely to face in 2023.

    This year is one that’s filled with change. And those changes matter for your brand and business. These include things like Google and Facebook facing some of the toughest competitive challenges they’ve seen in years, the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning in marketing, and, of course, the looming threat of a poor economy.

    How will these trends shape your marketing plans for 2023 — and beyond? That’s what we’re talking about in this episode of Thinks Out Loud.

    Revisiting “Touch Grass” (Thinks Out Loud)

    Revisiting “Touch Grass” (Thinks Out Loud)

    The TPA and Thinks Out Loud is on vacation this week, enjoying the holidays with friends and family. I hope you are too. So, it seemed like as good a time as any to revisit this episode of the Thinks Out Loud podcast, called "Touch Grass," and remind you — and if I’m being honest, myself — that every once in a while it’s a good idea to back away from the keyboard, step outside, and get in touch with nature — and other human beings.

    Thank you as ever for all your support of Thinks Out Loud and Tim Peter & Associates. On behalf of the entire team, I wish you a warm, safe, and wonderful holiday season, as well as a fantastic, successful, and exceedingly happy New Year.

    We’ll see you after the break with all new episodes of the pod. In the meantime, I hope you get a chance to "touch grass." Here are the show notes for you.

    Recapping 2022 (Thinks Out Loud Episode 369)

    We’re wrapping up a very busy, very eventful 2022. I suspect you are too. And the two defining characteristics of the year, from my perspective, were:



    * Operating in an exceedingly weird economy

    * Keeping a clear focus on the future



    That’s what the data tells us. Your listens, likes, shares, and comments on social and in email kept revolving around those two topics. As such, we’re recapping 2022 by looking back at the podcast episodes that focused on those two topics, from executing in a weird economy to deep dives into the future of digital. And along the way, we provide some guidance on where we might be headed in 2023.
