Since its release in November, ChatGPT has captured the imagination of the world. People are using it for all kinds of tasks and applications. It has the potential to change popular applications and create new ones.

But ChatGPT has also triggered an AI arms race between tech giants such as Microsoft and Google. This has pushed the industry toward more competition and less openness on large language models (LLM). The source code, model architecture, weights, and training data of these instruction-following LLMs are not available to the public.

I got the chance to do exactly that last week as I facilitated a conversation on generative artificial intelligence with Sourabh Bajaj, CTO of CoRise and a group of heads of learning or talent who sit on the GSV Ventures Workforce Insights Board. Sourabh has spent his career in artificial intelligence in companies from Coursera to Google.

In this article, I hope to provide a quick primer and further the conversation more broadly on what generative AI will mean for us in the talent and learning space.

Suppose you are a professor of pedagogy, and you assign an essay on learning styles. A student hands in an essay with the following opening paragraph:

"The construct of “learning styles” is problematic because it fails to account for the processes through which learning styles are shaped. Some students might develop a particular learning style because they have had particular experiences. Others might develop a particular learning style by trying to accommodate to a learning environment..."
