LISTEN | Will Chat GPT take your job one day?

Artificial intelligence is here whether we like it or not, and it might be ‘applying for your job’ as we speak.

If you’re worried about ChatGPT taking your job one day, this episode of ‘The Carol Ofori Podcast’ is for you.

If you have no idea what ChatGPT is, this episode is also definitely (and probably more so) for you.

Carol Ofori speaks to award-winning writer, analyst, technology commentator and head of the World Wide Worx research organisation, Arthur Goldstuck about artificial intelligence, and in particular, ChatGPT.

Goldstuck tells us why it’s so important that instead of running away from ChatGPT or pretending it’s not there, we need to do everything we can to master it.

In saying that, Goldstuck lists the different types of jobs that are at risk, but also tells us what we can do to best mitigate that risk.

He says ChatGPT is coming for many of our jobs, but if we take the time to master it, we can make it work for us, instead of the other way around.

Goldstuck also warns that as much as being able to do a simple Google search is a prerequisite for a job application today, being able to master ChatGPT will also very soon be an essential skill if we’re hoping to be employed.

Meanwhile, last week on 'The Carol Ofori Podcast,' Carol looked into a subject very close to her heart: do hair relaxers cause cancer?  When Carol began using hair relaxers again this year, she began researching the treatment and the ingredients used in these products, uncovering a potential connection between certain chemicals and various forms of cancer in the process. 

In her research, Carol discovered a growing body of studies from around the world highlighting that women who frequently use chemical hair straighteners may face more than double the risk of uterine cancer compared to non-users. The research specifically focuses on the association between chemical hair straighteners containing lye, also known as sodium hydroxide or caustic soda, and cancer. 

Carol’s investigation led her to two women working to uncover the truth. Listen to the full podcast below for all the details...

More: UK-based organisation 'Level Up’ has written an open letter to L’Oréal calling on the cosmetics company to withdraw its hair straightening products and also circulated a petition in the UK. Find the petition here.

In the previous episode of ‘The Carol Ofori Podcast’, Carol Ofori had a heart-to-heart conversation with the mother of murdered hip hop star, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, or AKA.

The motivational speaker talked candidly about how the Forbes family is trying to pick up the pieces after the devastating loss.  She also talked about the heartbreaking moment she stumbled across the haunting video of her son’s brutal murder on social media. 

Lynn, or ‘Glammy’ as she is affectionately known, said the Forbes family is “getting through the days” as best they can, but accepts that their lives have forever been changed.
