Adopting GenAI: The good, the bad, and the ugly

Credera is excited to announce the release of a new Technology Tangents podcast episode: "Adopting GenAI: The good, the bad, and the ugly."

On this episode 

Junior employees are historically faster than senior leaders to adopt new technologies, but there may be some serious consequences to relying on junior leaders as a source of expertise in the GenAI space.

In our latest episode of Technology Tangents, ⁠Vincent Yates⁠, ⁠Jason Goth⁠, and ⁠Kevin Erickson⁠, three senior leaders at Credera, break down a recent paper from ⁠Harvard Business School and Boston Consulting Group⁠ that highlights the risks and challenges associated with the use of generative AI, particularly in the context of junior consultants using these tools. Their discussion highlights the potential for inexperienced users to misunderstand and misuse the technology, leading to inaccurate and unreliable results.

They also touch on the unique nature of generative AI, which involves solving problems in a non-algorithmic way, and ultimately the need for proper training, understanding, and critical thinking when using generative AI.

Show outline:

  • 00:00 – Introductions and greetings

  • 1:48 – The change management required for generative AI: Embracing GenAI in reality

  • 2:39 – The reliance on junior employees to adopt & implement new technologies

  • 8:18 – The biggest risks and hurdles to the technology – in the eyes of junior and more senior employees

  • 22:15 – Concerns and risks with the low barriers to entry of GenAI

  • 33:48 – “Just change how you work” – the message that’s never worked

  • 39:00 – The importance of systems-level thinking

  • 46:43 – Changing the user interaction of Gen AI

Technology Tangents

In Technology Tangents, Credera's Global Chief Technology Officer and Global Chief Data Officer bring leaders together to discuss the modern technologies of today and how organizations should navigate the implications for tomorrow.

The discussions are fun, light-hearted, and frankly opinionated, but hopefully it gives technology leaders a sense of what matters, what to pay attention to, and what to ignore.

This podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, and Anchor FM.
