Series 9, Episode 7 of the Future of Internal Communication podcast

03 Apr 2024

In this episode, the hosts are joined by guest Alex Fahie to discuss the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and generative AI in internal communication. They explore the potential of generative AI to automate content creation and the impact it may have on the role of internal communicators. They also discuss the importance of upskilling for internal communicators to effectively leverage AI tools. The conversation then shifts to the practical application of generative AI in the education sector, specifically in tasks such as lesson planning and finding cover for absent teachers. They discuss the application of AI in internal communication and the importance of humanising technology. They explore topics such as automating touch points and employee experience, moving from a task-based approach to systems thinking, the role of internal communicators in humanising technology, the challenges of labels and identity, and the risks of data and labels. They emphasise the need for internal communicators to ensure the healthy use of AI in organisations and focus on outcomes rather than tools and tactics. The main takeaway is the importance of play and experimentation in understanding and utilising AI effectively.

Takeaways

  • Generative AI uses artificial intelligence to generate new content, such as text, images, videos, and songs.
  • While generative AI has the potential to automate content creation, it is important for internal communicators to be educated and skilled in using these tools effectively.
  • Generative AI can be applied in various tasks in the education sector, such as lesson planning, essay marking, and finding cover for absent teachers.
  • Teachers' reactions to generative AI in education vary, with some expressing apathy due to the influx of educational technology, while others see it as a way to alleviate administrative burdens and fall back in love with teaching.
  • Internal communicators can be empowered by AI tools to have a seat at the table and effectively fulfill their role in organisations.
