When speaking about Generative AI fundamentals, I frequently discuss how it’s a General Purpose Technology which reshapes language. Inevitably, new words arise and existing words are repurposed. Several examples of this have already emerged in Generative AI-Land and we’re about to see quite a bit more.

One term whose usage is on the rise is “Agent.” It’s a pithy shorthand that may just catch fire as we come to reply on the increasing capabilities of these systems. It’s not a stretch to imagine your own personal “Agent” with access to a trove of your data that you interact with in a conversational tone. This isn’t the realm of science fiction. It’s near-term reality.

Stay tuned for your own personal “Agent” coming soon to a device near you.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Be strong. Lead well.
