The 5 Human Essentials in the Age of AI

In the new age…
Humans imagine new things.
Machines optimize anything.
Humans and Machines can co-create everything.
You’ll need 5 things to thrive. 

1)  You must become emotionally fluent.
We will improve our emotional literacy.
We think ChatGPT is good at emotion because we are so bad at them.
We confuse being born with emotions with having emotional literacy.
Having the tool does not equate to skill or mastery.
We don’t expect a baby to be born fluent in Italian or Mandarin because they have vocal cords.
To evaluate AI emotion using human emotional skill is to use a very, very low bar for AI.

2)  You’ll have to become great at in-person connection.
We will value “live everything” again.
By 2025 most of what you see online will be created in whole or part with a GenAI.
Influencers and marketers will make their own deepfakes to automate content.
You won’t be able to tell what is machine-made and what is human.
We will place more value on in-person to confirm human.

3)  Find a way to value your imperfections.
We will become so used to perfection that we will value imperfection more.
GenAI will result in more elegant, eloquent, visually appealing words, images and videos.
Some people will generate imperfections but most folks will take the easy route and make pretty things.  Eventually the prettiness will become normal and we will seek out the unusual.

 4)  You’ll need to find and refine your uniqueness
The Great Same-fi-cation will increase the value of diversity of all kinds.
As things online begin to converge around a visual and auditory mean, we will seek out differences in things and ach other.  Neuro, racial, physical, and avatar diversity will attract us more.

5)  Go dream big and create new things.
We will become more creative.
The new GenAI tools will unleash creativity as more humans will be able to express their ideas at a higher quality level and resolution. I once used MidJourney to share a dream.  Expect more of that.
You’re about to get a great deal more power to express.
