(Newsletter #8) LinkedIn, ChatGPT, Slack: using them less... or using them better?

Society's massive reliance on social media - and increasingly on AI - is at the heart of the new 'attention economy', where the interests of some collide with the fatigue of others. So, how can we make the most of these technologies to promote learning, exchange and innovation? Using them better, using them differently: that's what our professors are inviting us to explore in this new issue of the #EDHECVox newsletter.

At school, at work and at home, social media and artificial intelligence tools seem to be taking up more and more space every day - in people's minds and in their practices. While some growth indicators in particular seem to be slowing down, society's massive reliance on these tools is at the heart of the new 'attention economy', where the interests of some collide with the fatigue of others.

 

So, how can we make the most of these technologies to promote learning, exchange and innovation? Using them better, using them differently: that's essentially what our professors are inviting us, collectively and individually, to explore this month.

 

Don't forget that all these articles are available in French on edhec.edu.

An interview with Pierre-Jean Barlatier – EDHEC Associate Professor & Foresight, Innovation and Transformation Chair Affiliate
