Artificial Intelligence should be an exciting transformative force in a tech-driven world.

Yet, a curious trend has emerged.

Have you found that AI discussions have grown a little mundane?

Dull? Repetitive?

The use of AI isn’t new. The term was first used in 1956.

Yet even washing machine manufacturers are proclaiming its apparent newness; declaring their devices are ‘driven by AI’.

*Spoiler alert*… they always were.


It’s the sudden rise and threat of Terminator, ‘I’ll be back’, technology that has the average person’s micros in a muddle.

Bring on the complex jargon. You know the stuff. Words that alienate us non-technical folks, but bigs up the boffins and you’re deliberately disconnecting the public from the ‘AI experts’.

And my goodness have you seen how many of those have popped up recently?


Just a few months ago the use of AI was brimming with excitement.

Now conversations echo buzzwords and clichés, leaving a void for what I believe is the most important feature of AI.


Ask better questions – receive better answers.

Free up time – use it to think.

Diagnose better – save more lives.

Spot mistakes – avoid rework.

Ask ChatGPT for ‘100 reasons why AI is brilliant’ and it spits them out in seconds (I’ve done it and added the list to the end of this newsletter – some will bend your brain!).

If you’re fed up with the talk about AI then why not gamify it?


⭐️Let’s play AI predictions!⭐️

I’ll start:

The numbers will become mind-bogglingly huge. Like the number of stars and the size of our universe, our little brains won’t be able to comprehend how big it becomes.

The Daily Mail will have a terrifying story, designed to scare the bejeezus out of the elderly and frail of thinking at least once a day.

A government minister will try to lecture you on the dangers of AI while using AI to reprimand you!

I’d love to know your AI predictions (the more creative the better). Please leave your comments below.

Finally, I gave ChatGPT this article and then asked it for a quote to summarise the content and a heading to encourage you to read this message. Here’s what it said:

‘The future of AI is dynamic – let’s ensure our conversations mirror its limitless potential.’

Its choice of headings were terrible, so I wrote this one 😉.

    Hey Michael,
    I did the same as you. I gave ChatGPT your article and asked it to:
    Please read the article below and then give me a compelling, funny, sarcastic heading to make people read it.

    This is the heading it came back with:

    From Mundane to Insane: Why Talking About AI Shouldn’t Be as Boring as Watching Paint Dry, Unless That Paint is Also Driven by AI

    More interesting than it’s first attempt I think.

    The more info you give it on the type of response you want, the more likely you are to get it.

    ChatGPT is like coaching. The better the quality of the questions. The better the response you get 🙂

    I would add that AI boasts too. AI doesn’t itself do all these things, it is used in the way we do these things. It is very important it remains a tool – not a competitor!

    AI is definitely in a hype cycle at the moment, but practical applications are much closer today than previously.

    the organisation I work for has capabilities in it’s technology and we like to say it’s like autopilot on a plane

    AI can do some of the repetitive easy stuff, but you still need people to do the more difficult stuff and to understand what it generates.

    whilst some might worry that it removes jobs etc, I point back to the clock. before clocks were widespread low cost devices people couldn’t afford them, so they employed “knockers” to come round and knock on your door in the morning and get you up for work.

    could you imagine a scenario where you’d give up your clock, watch etc today and pay someone to knock on your door every morning?

    I read an article the other day. They’ve created external wombs so that women are only needed to produce eggs now. When they get to the stage of making it AI operated we really are only a few steps away from selective breeding of humans only for batteries (Think Matrix) 🙂

    What frightens people, including me, is the definition of AI. If it is “artificial” why should I give way to something that is not real and where would it take me to; oblivion? And, if it is to start and stop or program my washing machine that is fine but if it is going to create a clone of Hitler or eugenic human, I am glad I am so old that I will never see that day and feel sorry for the future of humanity and nature.
