Cutting through the hype – will AI deliver in the workplace?

The launch of Open AI’s ChatGPT has put AI in the public consciousness
like never before. But for professionals working with knowledge and information, Generative AI is something of an enigma – bringing opportunity and concerns. In the June issue of Information Professional Magazine, researcher In Digital Education at the University of Manchester Mark Carrigan speaks to Rob Green about what we should be thinking about.

“I’m interested in how we develop a purposeful, deliberate relationship with new
technologies – how do we do that socially and organisationally?”
