Welcome back, Superhuman

It’s a milestone day for OpenAI and AI enthusiasts everywhere as ChatGPT turns 1 year old. From classrooms to workplaces and billions of dollars in funding, the chatbot has been at the forefront of the shift that has seen generative AI go from a fun gimmick to potentially world-changing technology.

And nowhere is that change being felt more than in the board rooms and cubicles of every major company around the world. A new study from Amazon has found that over 90% of surveyed companies expect to use AI — but only a fraction of them can find AI-qualified talent.
