 AI Ethics and Society: Use AI Right and Skip The Drama

As machine learning evolves, it’s important to understand AI ethics and society. AI is part of our lives, from Siri to Netflix suggestions. Generative AI tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney are used for text and images. Almost any website you visit has an AI assistant. It’s not quite the Jetsons, but it’s time to understand how AI ethics plays a role in society.

When ChatGpt first broke, I was at a virtual copywriting workshop, and you could feel the hunger for information in the room. Everyone had questions, asking if AI-generated content is legal. Is it ethical? Can it be detectable? Are you required to disclose that your content is AI-generated? 

At the time, there wasn’t enough research on what you could and couldn’t do.  One copywriter felt you should say when AI was used because that’s the right thing. Another copywriter disagreed–asking why disclose using AI when grandma’s secret ingredient stays a secret?

Barbie vs. Baby Dolls: Whose the Real MVP in the Career Game?

There is a lot of hype around the Barbie movie and between the marketing and women of all backgrounds dressing up as Barbie on social media, it got me thinking about the great debate: Barbie vs. Baby Dolls and who has the bigger career influence.

For as long as I can remember I’ve never been into Barbie unless it was to braid her hair. She wasn’t a toy I saw myself in and it didn’t help that her accessories were so small. I constantly lost them and eventually forget about the doll. I preferred baby dolls and would ask for one a new one every year for Christmas or my birthday. Playing with baby dolls allowed me to care for and love something other than myself and perhaps was the beginning of my desire to want to help others. 

Some girls are inspired by Barbie’s career choices while others enjoy nurturing roles like motherhood and nursing. In this blog, you’ll learn how the iconic toys have influenced future career aspirations in women as well as some fun facts about Barbie and baby dolls.
