Creative Machines: AI and a Generative Future

Generative AI is digitizing skillsets, making them programmable and upgradeable. As a result, a new class of Generalists will dominate the era of generative AI. As expertise and experience are no longer needed to perform with proficiency in new fields, those with a breadth of experience and passionate curiosity will rise to the top. With AI, individual creators can become armies of one.

This new paradigm will flip the corporate world on its head, shake up entire industries, and completely transform our relationship with work. What does a world look like when everything we do is enhanced by artificial intelligence?
