O.I. = Success

In a blog last month, I challenged you peruse the A.I. articles in your LinkedIn account, and I predicted that the articles would fall into two categories:

  1. A.I. will save us!
  2. A.I. will doom us!

Anyone who has read my blogs knows that I tend to Andy Rooney like on new technologies. I think it comes with age. During my career I have heard so many promises of how technologies will make our lives better, only to experience the disappointment of experiencing no improvement. Or in some cases, the horror of a new technology leaving us worse off.

But here’s the thing, A.I. will rely on your organization’s O.I. (Organic Intelligence). Without the O.I., you will not be able to leverage the A.I.

Start there.
