Gen AI gives Gen Z’s a level footing at work

Gen Z has had a hard landing into the workforce. 

Starting jobs amid the global pandemic, many of these new workers have missed out on gaining essential hard- and soft skills usually gleaned by working alongside older colleagues.

However, as the first truly digital generation, their innate fluency with technology could help them make up some of that ground – especially as AI becomes a hugely important part of the modern workplace.

“With AI, people tend to fall into a dystopian or utopian outlook, and younger people normally fall into the latter,” she says. “While there isn’t huge amounts of quality research into this yet, anecdotally, young people are more accepting and willing to adapt AI into their daily lives and at work.” – Emma Parry, HR professor at Cranfield School of Management, UK

Stephanie Forrest, the founder of TFD, a London-based strategic communications consultancy in the tech space, has seen first-hand how Gen Z employees use AI technology with ease, and are quickly becoming essential in the workplace. “They don’t question [the technology] – they simply see it as a way to optimise what they are already doing.” 

At TFD, she says, Gen Z were the first employees to experiment with generative AI tools such as Open AI’s ChatGPT for tasks including admin, research and email composition.

“Since AI is so new for everyone, it puts Gen Z employees on a level footing with other members of a team, providing them with a way to meaningfully contribute. AI enables forward-looking companies to learn from younger employees, in terms of how they use technology to be more efficient,” says Forrest.

“Gen Z employees can leverage their AI knowledge to innovate and streamline processes and help bridge the gap between technical and non-technical roles,” – Professor Weiguo (Patrick) Fan at the University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business, US

This can help them stand out. For instance, at VEM Medical, a US-based medical tool company, “Young employees’ ability to use AI technology to automate tedious jobs and optimize workflows has grown our productivity dramatically,” says Derrick Hathaway, sales director.

Additionally, says Fan, “Gen Z’s familiarity with AI helps these younger employees adapt to these changes and understand the implications of AI on their roles, making them flexible and dynamic employees.” Fan adds how these skills are especially valuable in industries including technology, finance, healthcare, marketing and manufacturing, where companies are rapidly integrating AI and machine learning.

New York: Sinking under the skyscrapers

New York City is sinking under the massive weight of its skyscrapers.

New research has revealed that the combination of massive skyscrapers and a rising sea level could make the city more prone to natural disasters.

However, researchers said developers are not taking the risk of rising waters seriously enough, and this could spell trouble for the over 8 million residents of the city in the future.

A team at the University of Rhode Island took on the daunting task of estimating the total weight of the more than 1 million buildings that make up New York City. They found that almost 1 trillion kg of concrete, steel and glass are pushing down the ground, causing it to slowly sink lower towards sea level.


The famed eight-block-long Wall Street in the financial heart of New York is just 1 to 2m above sea level.
Midtown Manhattan is built on rock, which compresses very little. However, Brooklyn and Queens have looser soil, which causes the sinking to happen faster.

Fears for a slowly sinking city

Parts of Lower Manhattan were artificially expanded by land reclamation near the coastline, making the ground more vulnerable to gravitational forces from the weight of the buildings because it is not as compact as natural landscape.

As a result, some of the land there is sinking twice as fast, at a rate of up to 4mm per year.


Researchers said that while it is not yet an emergency, they want to provide the science to help with future planning.

“This is where the policy comes into play. This is where we have the responsibility to integrate this data, this science, with other science and climate science, and talk about the impacts.”  

– Mr Andrew Kruczkiewicz, a senior researcher at Columbia University’s Climate School

However, construction is showing no signs of stopping.

The same waterfront areas that bore the brunt of the devastation from Hurricane Sandy and the more recent flash floods have seen some of the highest rates of new housing developments.

New York Floods after Hurricane Sandy

The city, which has some of the most expensive land in the United States, stands to lose a lot as rising seas continue to erode the shore, said observers.


“In the New York area, as we project to 2050, the amount approaches US$1 billion.This is not the retail value of land but the tax-assessed value. This value supports property taxes and all of the municipal services dependent on those.” – Peter Girard, vice president of communicationsresearch organisation, Climate Central

The city ranks third in the world in terms of the value of real estate assets exposed to coastal flooding, after Guangzhou and Miami.

This could mean big losses for owners and investors if natural disasters hit.

Generative AI Accuracy: Science or Art?

Seed any talented, experienced Founder with $1Billion at day zero of their mission, and they’re likely to deliver something seismically impressive 7 years later.

And so it goes with Sam Altman. When ChatGPT dropped, it went viral. Spellbinding 100 million people in less than 2 months.

Looking past the headlines, what I find fascinating is the direction OpenAI took in allowing ChatGPT’s Users free-form prompt entry.

Free-form entry is when your computer interface allows you to write (or draw) inputs freely.

In a Generative AI input context, it’s equivalent to handing over the keys of every car in your dealership to prospective buyers for a test drive without a shred of identification or collateral from them, and hoping they return.

It’s a big risk. Because you simply don’t know what they’re going to do.

Sam & Co. took that risk. Letting their users write anything that occurred to them, and trusting that the system they’d built would be able to generate some kind of response. Kudos to them.

Truth Be Damned.

But there’s a little secret that swooning media headlines don’t speak of.

Aside from enormous capital resources, Sam had another luxury afforded to him. That the degree of accuracy of ChatGPT’s responses, wasn’t a priority.

Safe in the knowledge that improvement in accuracy would come with later iterations of their GPT framework, what mattered more was that ChatGPT generate a response. Any response would do, so long as it were contextually and syntactically correct. Even if it weren’t entirely true.

In other words the priority for ChatGPT was to be output-oriented, and that accuracy would be improved down the line.

Software As A Service. Accuracy As An Obsession.

There are less funded Founders that do not have such resources and the learning curve it affords.

I’m one of them.

Having set out in 2019 to develop a themed language model, we were cognisant of the need to deliver accurate output, or else we’d fail to launch.

Our entire focus became outcome-oriented. We needed to ensure that our Generative AI would deliver content of value specific to our target Users’ use case. is a real estate themed language model.

Written in a combination of languages, overwrite is trained through reinforcement learning and rule-based action, using a proprietary corpus of over 2Billion scale parameters to generate syntactically, contextually and factually correct real estate marketing content.

Used by the real estate industry to instantly generate unique and engaging property listings. Content that can neither be generic nor factually misleading, for search optimisation and legal reasons respectively.

People are increasingly understanding the value of Generative AI accuracy.

Input First. Output After. Sounds Easy Enough.

To deliver that absolute accuracy, we needed to guide our Users through the input process. We couldn’t expect them to know what to prompt the system with. How could they? Before ChatGPT’s release the very concepts of Generative AI and Prompt Engineering were known only to those within the industry. Certainly not to our real estate marketing audience.

So we developed a prompt input system of our own. One that takes Users through a dynamically responsive journey. Meandering. Adapting prompts and predicting inputs as it goes. Never risking human error, insufficient inputs or hallucinatory outcomes.

We knew at the time that consumer-friendly prompt engineering would one day become critical to the widespread adoption of AI tools. (Fun Fact: Today Prompt Engineer. salaries are reaching $400K)

That meant finding the Goldilocks Zone between the AI science, and the very human art of communication.

Designed for specific use cases, Themed Language Models like overwrite do not need to be all things for all people. They can be fit-for-purpose more cost-effectively, and user-efficiently than their large language model cousins. Now that frameworks make generative AI model development easy and fast for enterprises; developers must remember to strike that UX balance between what’s good enough for them, and what’s expected from their Users.

Most overused real estate one-liner, ever

“Arguably the best deal on the market…”.

Said Every Real Estate Agent, Everywhere.

This statement could almost certainly claim the title of most overused real estate one-liner ever!

Describing a new listing as ‘Arguably the best deal on the market’: Real Estate agents just can’t get enough of it.

We’re not saying it’s completely off-limits. But when you really want your property listing to work for you, you’ve got to stand out from the crowd.

You need to Boss-Level your listing content.

“Definition of Luxury”

“One of a kind”

“Arguably the best”

They’re all so… Meh!  While fly-through videos and professional imagery is attractive, remember one fact. You can’t publish a listing with videos and images alone.

Harness the power of words

Words have power. Their meaning crystallizes perceptions that shape our beliefs, drive our behaviour, and ultimately, create our world. Their power arises from our emotional responses when we read, speak, or hear them.

Harness that power.

Grab your audience’s attention and don’t let go. Make them want you to tell them more about your property.

But what if you can never seem to find the right words to describe your dream listing. What they call ‘writer’s block’. What if English isn’t your strong point?

A killer script will prompt them to make an offer

That’s why agents all over the world are using generative AI to do this job for them. And is powered by a database of over 70,000 entries. Trending words, phrases, and descriptive prose. The cream of the crop of real estate lexicon. All so that you can publish engaging and search optimised listing descriptions that will set you apart from the rest.
