Creativity Squared

Jun 15 2023 • 58 mins

In this episode of Creativity Squared, Eric Solomon joins us to discuss how language shapes our reality, his approach to the human operating system, the promise and pitfalls of A.I., the importance of intentionality, and how we need to remember that machines are not human and we need to embrace human-to-human connection now more than ever. Eric has worked at the intersection of psychology, brand-building, technology, and creativity for over 20 years. He has held marketing leadership positions for some of the top brands in the world including YouTube, Spotify, Google, and Instagram. He also served as the Chief Marketing Officer for Bonobos, a DTC e-retailer owned by Walmart. Eric entered the business world through the doors of academia, earning his Master’s and Ph.D. in cognitive psychology prior to leading research and strategy for award-winning creative agencies. He currently serves as the Founder and CEO of The Human OS™, a strategic advisory platform that Eric built from the ground up.  Eric started his PhD program in 1999 exploring cognitive psychology with a focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence. This is not only fascinating but was also really the early days of the application of language to this field. To lay the foundation for ethical and responsible A.I. development, Eric suggests the necessity of an operating system. This operating system should address concerns such as understanding how A.I. systems work, involving diverse voices in the decision-making process, and establishing clear beliefs and behaviors with a clearly defined end goal of what we’re working towards — and purely profits isn’t what he wants to see. Without it, the path forward lacks direction, clarity, and purpose.
