Happy January!

In today's fast-paced world, reading and retaining information can be a daunting task. With the abundance of information now available online, it can be overwhelming to keep up with all the latest news, trends, and research. However, with the help of generative AI, reading and retaining information can become a much more effective and efficient process.

Generative AI technology uses machine learning algorithms to analyze large amounts of data and generate new content based on that analysis. This can be extremely helpful when it comes to reading and retaining information. For example, generative AI can help summarize lengthy articles or research papers, making it easier to quickly grasp the main points without having to read through every single word.

Additionally, generative AI can help with note-taking. By analyzing the content you're reading, generative AI can provide suggestions for key points to include in your notes. This can help ensure that you are capturing the most important information and not missing any critical details.

Another way in which generative AI can help with reading and retaining information is through personalized content recommendations. By analyzing your reading habits and preferences, generative AI can suggest articles, books, and other materials that are tailored to your interests and learning style. This can help you stay engaged and motivated while learning new information.

As you can see , generative AI technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we read and retain information. By providing summaries, note-taking assistance, and personalized content recommendations, generative AI can make learning more efficient and effective. As the technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more innovative ways in which it can assist us in our quest for knowledge.

OFF THE SHELF book club


AI Fundamentals are the basic principles and concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that are becoming increasingly more common in our workplaces. It's about understanding how AI works, the different types of AI technologies that are available, and how we can use them to solve problems. This month, OFF THE SHELF is featuring a bookshelf of resources to help you learn more about AI and discover how AI can help you.

Legendary organizational scholar Edgar Schein and former Silicon Valley executive Peter Schein say leadership today requires that people transcend their hierarchical roles and relate to each other as human beings-what they call humble leadership. In such relationships new ideas can flow freely, mistakes can come to light immediately, and course corrections can be made in real time rather than by committee or by order of the lone heroic CEO. Illustrated with examples from healthcare, government, the military, tech, and more, this is a compact, accessible guide to a leadership paradigm far better suited to a world that demands fast, nimble response to change, and a workplace hungry for mutual respect and trust.

Humble Leadership: The Power of Relationships, Openness, and Trust, Second Edition is available on Percipio as a digital book and an audiobook.
