    Excellent analysis of what humans do that machines can’t - and what future winning organizations will be defined by: “Taking a long term perspective”; “Create value through purpose”; “Adapt the world to their view, rather than learn to fit in”. (I worry about this one: “The notion of organizational ambidexterity — the capacity to balance exploitation and exploration”)

  • Answer: Companies will exist until someone finds an alternative to the concept of “Limited Liability”

  • The fact that it even needs to be said, in an HBR article no less, that humans (aka 'firms' in this piece) are better than machines at things like creating purpose and managing/motivating unique talent (ie communicating) is a clear sign that we've lost all perspective when it comes to AI.

  • Firms will have a difficult decision to choose between those four approaches. I think areas that firms should include with any approach are : Building trust , innovate fail safe mechanisms and appropriate automation. humans will continue to evolve as AI evolves yet, we need to align our efforts to embrace

    Firms will have a difficult decision to choose between those four approaches. I think areas that firms should include with any approach are : Building trust , innovate fail safe mechanisms and appropriate automation. humans will continue to evolve as AI evolves yet, we need to align our efforts to embrace our supremacy in areas that are deemed impossible for AI’s to gain.

Orienting a large group around community is a unique skill that requires empathy, foresight, and a deft touch with technology. The author almost

    What about the idea of firms creating community around products, services, or purposes? Community is one thing that AI won’t do well, at least for some time. Orienting a large group around community is a unique skill that requires empathy, foresight, and a deft touch with technology.
