From Cassette Tapes to Cloud Storage: The Evolution of IT Thought Leadership

Thought leadership used to be about rocking the mic with subject matter expertise and visionary ideas. IT gurus navigated organizations through tech mountains, charted strategic journeys, and decoded industry trends. But as we groove into the digital age, AI has become the hype man, amplifying the way ideas are generated, shared, and executed.

AI's Impact on Thought Leadership: Dropping Beats of Brilliance

Data-Driven Insights: AI crunches data like nobody's business, extracting golden nuggets of wisdom. IT thought leaders can use this to analyze market grooves, customer vibes, and industry trends, making their decisions sharper than a well-tuned EQ.

Automated Research: Forget sifting through endless reports – AI robots do the dirty work, keeping thought leaders at the forefront of the latest tech breakthroughs. This frees up time for brainstorming killer strategies, and not getting lost in research rabbit holes.

Creativity on Steroids: AI isn't just a data cruncher, it's a creative collaborator. Thought leaders can use it to brainstorm next-level ideas, generate groundbreaking solutions, and even automate content creation, leaving more time for strategic headbanging.

Personalized Engagement: No more one-size-fits-all speeches. AI helps tailor communication to individual preferences, making thought leadership resonate like a perfectly personalized playlist. Targeted content, laser-focused outreach – AI turns thought leaders into relationship rockstars.

Predictive Prowess: Forget crystal balls, AI uses predictive analytics to see the future of the industry, customer needs, and potential roadblocks. This foresight lets thought leaders position their organizations at the cutting edge of innovation, always one step ahead of the competition.

Implementing AI-Driven Thought Leadership: From Idea to Execution

Building the AI Arsenal: Organizations need a robust AI infrastructure to support their thought leadership mosh pit. This means integrating AI tools for data analysis, research automation, and predictive modelling. Think of it as your high-tech band equipment.

Level Up Your Skills: Thought leaders and IT teams need to learn the language of AI. Training programs and workshops are like music lessons, teaching them how to leverage AI effectively and turn data into chart-topping insights.

Collaboration Nation: AI thrives on teamwork. Integration of AI-powered collaboration platforms creates a space for sharing ideas, insights, and expertise like a virtual jam session. The more instruments, the better the music!

It's about embracing the transformative power of AI to conceive sharper ideas, make smarter decisions, and lead with true vision. So crank up the volume, let AI be your hype man, and get ready to dominate the IT sector with the thought leadership that rocks the house.

How AI will transform education, Coursera founder shares insights at Moneycontrol Startup Conclave

Jeff Maggioncalda, CEO of Coursera, a U.S.-based massive open online course provider, shared his views at the Moneycontrol Startup Conclave, on the topic of ‘Navigating edtech in the AI era held in Bengaluru on 10th of July..

On being told by his engineers, “Hey Jeff, this stuff is getting pretty powerful”, Jeff said how he then had to get his hands onto ChatGPT by early December of 2022. Since then, Coursera has moved pretty aggressively to integrate a ChatGPT implementation of a personalized learning assistant called Coursera Coach. It works on 5000 courses...

On being asked whether he thinks AI will save or destroy education, he said, “I think education has to adapt. Every time the world is changing, everything has to adapt. Relationships, institutions, everything. We’re all going to have to change the way we use tools, and even the way we use technology as a thought partner.”

“We’re using a large language model, we are not actually doing a lot of fine tuning right now, and we are constructing prompts that have the kind of context that a tutor would need to give you personalized prompts. So, it allows the language models to be really good at language, but the domain expertise comes from the university and the professor. We are rolling it out and, a little over 25% of our learners have access to Coursera Coach.”

On the impact of generative AI on kids’ learning abilities, Maggioncalda said, “The capability of this technology is quite remarkable, and I was worried that it was giving me too good of an answer. So, we are all figuring out how you can support a learner without letting them cheat. Cheating is a very big threat to the way people learn. So, we want to lend assistance, not give them the whole answer. The student still has to do all the work.”

“The pandemic was a major accelerator in the adoption of technology for teaching and learning. But even now as people go back to school, we are seeing really strong adoption of online learning in physical classrooms. I think we will never go back to a world of printed textbooks, with every student and every teacher in the same class. So, I think it’s going to be a hybrid world. Even students on campus are taking courses on Coursera, and our courses becoming a part of the curriculum. So, it is a hybrid world, and we all need to be pretty agile, because the world is changing pretty quickly,” he added.
