Hello everyone. Welcome to the 5 Minutes podcast. Recently I did the opening keynote of the International Project Management Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and I started my talk using Chat GPT. And what I did, I just wrote. Please write to my boss. A brief status report of my project, and I gave some absolutely raw information. I said we did this; we didn't do that. This is good. This is not good. And I just press enter in something like maybe 3 to 5 seconds. I received a completely polished, well-written, well-prepared email to be sent to my boss. And this was the opening. And then I would say the audience, probably about 500 people, they said, Whoa, what is that? And I finished by saying, But this is not very expensive. This is not something that you may think it's cheap because this is free. This cost zero. And this is how I started talking about artificial intelligence and technology and its influence in our life and chat Jeopardy! And the jeopardy for those who did not know. It stands for Generative Pre-training Transformer. And the word generative is, I would say, the key to it because it generates natural language. So when you read what chat GPT brings to you. It's so human that you will. It will be hard for you to realize. Is it human or not? And this is fully AI, so the algorithm generates a very good machine algorithm using natural language. And I know you may ask, will these disrupt and will be the game changer? And I want just to give a step back and say, you know, every 2 to 3 weeks someone comes to me and say, have you seen that these well, just changed the planet?
We saw this with blockchain. We saw this with many applications of AI, and we are now seeing these unchecked GPT. There is a massive trend, and people are talking about that. And honestly, I truly believe that these will be extremely disruptive in some types of business. For example, the use of chat GPT for Low-code no, code software development, the use of chat GPT for customer care where you will talk with an AI, but it will look absolutely human when you use a chat and this kind of customer care support helpdesk, this can be strongly disrupted. Translation services may be disrupted, and some industries also may be disrupted, not for good. Have you thought about plagiarism, for example? I can take a Ph.D. thesis or a master dissertation inserts on chat GPT and ask, please rewrite it for me with a completely different language, and then I can have, I would say, a completely fake article but written in such a different way that the Machine was the author of that compilation. And I don't know how universities and companies will work on that or how the concept of copyright will be reframed. If you can rephrase something, for example, you can write, take the lyrics of music and ask Chad to please can you create another lyric that transmits the same idea but with different words, and you can create music out of that.
You can create a code out of that; you can create software out of that. You can create a new HDR article out of that. So this is something that will challenge the way we do and we think business in our area. And, of course, this podcast aims to help those working in the process. Environmental risk management. And this is where the area that I work with is mainly focused on. So you can use this clearly to review and revolutionize the way you report on your project. Because for example, you can insert, let's suppose you have a construction project, and you can put all the bin information and all the project information, every single task, every single resource, and populate this API to. And then your boss can just say, please tell me the highlights of this project. And then suddenly, in a matter of seconds, your boss will have the relevant information on your project and at his or her fingertips taking 2 seconds. So the concept that I'm telling people a lot that the project management office and all the supporting work in the projects will, it's already changing, but it will face a massive if your work is to prepare reports, if your work out, then you should be really concerned about being disrupted, you know, and the key thing now will be how these will evolve, how this concept of, for example, imagine power by the Microsoft Power BI where you consolidate this different information in a visual and then suddenly you can just ask a chat GPT and say, What is wrong with my project? And then the chap will say, Look, pay attention to this task or this work team or this sprint because this is where your problem relies on, and we analyze all your other projects.
And that team is always with a lower performance if compared with other teams, and this in nature. So you don't need to investigate and look for problems. The AI will bring the problems directly to you. So this is something that I truly believe will happen, will happen soon, and will disrupt the way we manage projects and, in the end, the way we manage organizations. And this is how I see this coming. I don't know how scared I am, but it's really disruptive, and I would strongly recommend Go on open. I open an account; it's a free account, and I go and chat and just play around. Just play around just. Start typing things, start sending three or four information about your project and ask chat to prepare a status report. You will be surprised by the results, even knowing that they are not still perfect, but they are extremely disruptive. So think about that. I hope you have a wonderful week, and see you next week with another 5 Minutes podcast.
