It didn’t disappointing…

Hi, I’m Dan Sodergren, a tech futurist and keynote speaker who gets to discuss fascinating things like AI and technology. I’m also a bit of a geek, and recently found myself bubbling with anticipation for the first developer day for Open AI.

Some fascinating snippets had leaked before the event, and I was eager to see if they held water. As someone who looks forward to clients and strives to paint the future in an optimistic hue, this is an area I love diving into. Tech, AI and the future of work.

Now, not everyone will agree with my take, but that’s okay. I invite you to join me in this exploration of the future of work, AI, and technology.

Even if you are not an entrepreneur or a marketer, the changes we’re witnessing have implications beyond just business. The reality is that they have the potential to impact nearly everyone within our economy over the next few months or years, whether they realize it or not.

In my view, we are truly on the brink of the 5th industrial revolution, with OpenAI and other tech companies paving the way for us all to capitalize on this massive shift. Here’s a run-through of how they’re enabling us.
