The past year has been a rollercoaster, but I'm back with regular content!
Like it or not, Generative AI is here to stay
But what if I don't want to?
OK, so what can I do now?
A lot of my key takeaways are from a the session "Understanding AI for Admins", which really resonated with me. This session was from Josh Birk, Senior Director, Admin Evangelist at Salesforce, Godfather of Trailhead and all around top notch human.
Now Josh was formerly on the Developer team, but recently made the move to the Admin relations to help #AwesomeAdmins with the "increasingly technical content we are facing, like AI".
Josh was kind enough to share some thoughts with me on his session since it really stuck with me!
On how the session came together
"The content itself was very in line with similar talks I have done on IoT, blockchain, etc. It's really easy to jump into a product assuming people know the underlying tech, but with a lot of these fast moving trends its better to start there and put it in a relatable way."
On how to get started
"Try one of the free tiers - it doesn't have to be work related. Dad jokes are a fun way to start and image generation can also be illuminating just due to the ease of getting impressive results. Try making a self portrait, it's a fun starter exercise."
"This stuff is new and moving fast, but you don't have to become an expert overnight. Get acquainted and familiar with the tools and think about what kind of useful relationship you can have with them. You don't have to be a data scientist to make this work."
Thank you to Josh for sharing his thoughts, and keep an eye out for more content soon!
I've also decided to share my collection of Salesforce tshirts with my posts, as I bring my authentic self to my blog and share my love of fashion!
