How AI amplifies a maverick’s super power. Maverick thinkers have a super power, which is challenging traditional norms and thinking outside of the box. This unique ability enables them to optimally make use of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. As mavericks are not constrained by preconceived notions of how things should be done they are able to explore new and innovative ways to utilise AI.
One of the key ways in which maverick thinkers can optimise the use of AI is by constantly challenging assumptions and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. For example, a maverick thinker in the field of healthcare may question the traditional methods of diagnosing and treating diseases, and instead explore the use of AI to analyse large amounts of patient data and identify new patterns and insights. This type of thinking can lead to the development of new and more effective treatment options that may have been overlooked using traditional methods.
Another way in which maverick thinkers can make optimal use of AI is by leveraging their willingness to take risks and experiment with new technologies. Maverick thinkers are not afraid to try out new ideas and approaches, and this mindset can be invaluable when working with AI. For example, a maverick thinker in the field of finance may be willing to experiment with using AI to analyse financial markets and make predictions, even if this approach is not widely accepted in the industry.
Above are all examples of how AI can be used for data analysis on a large scale. But the true power of a maverick is their ability to question. AI solutions such as ChatGPT, Dall-E, and Midjourney all work using prompts. Prompts are nothing more than questions. Knowing the right question to ask in order to flip perspectives is second nature to mavericks. For example where someone would ask for a picture of a Swan in Van Gogh style, a maverick might ask for a picture of a Swan in Van Gogh style looking through the lens of Picasso using the light style of Adam de Coster. You can imagine that the results produced by the 2 prompts would be very different. Apply this type of thought to a science data set and the results could lead to world changing insights
Up until now I have only touched on what it means on the output side. But mavericks can also be of value to the AI itself. A self teaching AI solutions would gain a new way of analysing data. The questions raised by a maverick would in theory drive the AI to think more like a maverick. For some there could be all kind of mental alarm bells ringing. Like what happens when AI surpasses human intelligence? And won’t mavericks quicken this progress? AI doesn’t posses the intuition a human has, which is one of the drivers of our progress. Maverick thinkers would actually be the ones keeping AI in check, as they have a natural tendency to question everything and would do the same when it comes to AI
In conclusion, maverick thinkers have the unique ability to optimally make use of AI solutions by challenging assumptions, taking risks and experimenting with new technologies. Their natural tendencies to question the status quo, should also help them to think on questions and create prompts that produce unexpected and creative results. The question I have for you is was this article created with AI, by AI or all human?
