John Sanei, a futures strategist, explains in this captivating podcast conversation that it is not artificial intelligence (AI) that causes people to panic and fear losing their jobs to a robot. Rather, it’s our human inability to develop new skills fast enough using current approaches to education and training. Sanei describes our brains as “familiarity machines” and that makes adapting to change difficult, even when we know it’s essential for our survival. 

Regarding ChatGPT, hold onto your hats, folks! The incredible openAI platform is shaking things up and propelling us into a faster and better future. And we're not talking about just a tiny bit faster - futurist John Sanei predicts that the next 5 to 10 years are going to be "super weird" with this game-changing technology.

And that's not all. Did you know that humans are addicted to certainty? Sanei and the hosts of Geeks Geezers and Googlization explore the fascinating field of neuroscience and discuss what it means to "unlearn." 

Sanei also provides an insightful historical perspective, stating that our ancestors have faced similar challenges and adapted. In the agricultural era, physical quotient (PQ) was the most important skill, but with the industrial revolution, intelligence quotient (IQ) became crucial. Now, with AI, we need to focus on emotional quotient (EQ) and adaptability quotient (AQ).

The conversation even touched on the decentralization of Web 3 and the creator economy.

So, tune in, buckle up, and get ready for the wildest ride of your life! With ChatGPT and other AI technologies going mainstream, the future is looking bright, but it's going to be a wild ride. Get ready to embrace the weirdness and see what amazing things we can achieve.
