It may be decades away, but it isn’t too early to start thinking about the advent of the AI CEO. ChatGTP is already making major waves, and the Googles and Metas of the world are working on AI at breakneck speed. The developments of the next decade may change the face of corporate America.
Let’s consider some of the advantages of an AI CEO:
The new board is composed of only three entities: A human chairman and vice chairman (one of whom must be an outsider), plus IBM’s Watson to provide analysis and serve as the tie-breaker in votes. Enormous savings and efficiencies can be realized within a few years.
The first company to have an AI CEO will go down in business history as legendary. Which will it be?
I nominate General Electric, which was the first company listed on the NYSE. Or Tesla, which is in desperate need of a rational manager devoid of ego (the latest is that Tesla wants to build a 1950s-style diner on Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles, complete with supercharging stations).
Whoever it is will crush its competition.
