“Ultimately, who does it serve? What is the value it creates? How do we make sure there’s widespread accessibility? And what does it ultimately mean for humanity as a species? Are some of the more existential questions we’re starting to ask ourselves.” Jon Yeo talks about the acceleration of technology on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast. 

“It’s about being aware of what you can do, what you can’t do when it comes to speaking, communication, influence, and giving yourself the best chance to put your best foot forward when the opportunity turns up.” Having a system for communication with Jon Yeo on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast. 

“This is where human values come into mind, into human decision making, human logic. And these are all things that you can’t program the way you can program, but it’s got to be programmed in such a way that everyone’s included and we don’t have that capability. And so that’s the bit that’s both interesting and a concern for me when it comes to technology.” The intersection of human & artificial intelligence with Jon Yeo on the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast.
