Generative artificial intelligence (AI) remains one of the hottest topics of 2023 and is changing the way businesses think about content creation. Who better, Alex Sevigny argues, than the communicator to lead this charge?
Long before it was trending, Sevigny, an associate professor at McMaster University, has been interested in the power of AI and how communicators can harness its power. In this episode of PodCatalyst, he sits down with IABC Executive Director Peter Finn to discuss how AI can help PR scale, the power of quantifying a digital life, training opportunities and gaps left by AI, what the next generation of communicators need to learn and more.
Sevigny will be part of a panel, “Generative Artificial Intelligence: The Communicator’s New Best Friend?” at IABC World Conference 2023, 4-7 June in Toronto. Tune in today for a preview of this can’t-miss discussion.
