We will also see why leaders should maximize the upside of AI. This underscores the value of human-machine collaboration, emphasizing that AI augments human capabilities rather than replacing them entirely. It’s a matter of harnessing AI’s analytical prowess to inform decision-making and free up human resources for more creative and strategic pursuits.

In some ways AI can do many of these things better than we can because it’s not emotional.
