Artificial Intelligence vs Emotional Intelligence

Virtual, Instructor Led


We have become too comfortable with AI and rather uncomfortable with EI. New artificial intelligence technologies are learning and recognizing human emotions and using that knowledge to improve everything from marketing campaigns to health care. The more we are connected artificially, the less we are connected emotionally. From spell checks to voicemails, AI is prolifically creative. Its structure and outputs are aligned with the human brain. Everything comes at a price. It is also dampening human creativity, straining face-to-face communications. Some people are already beginning to feel like puppets with AI holding the remote control.

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to recognize and communicate using the appropriate feelings in specific situations. EI is related to humans and hearts. AI is related to algorithms and numbers. Self-awareness, self-regulation, inner motivation, social skills, and empathy set us apart from Siri and Chat GPT.

Chat GPT and Siri cannot fix all our problems. No matter how smart they may be, there will be some things that can never be replaced by AI.

Key Takeaways

  • Finding that balance between AI and EI
  • Determining which areas could benefit with emotional intelligence and which areas don’t
  • AI Landmines: When artificial intelligence can backfire, lead to money waste, and time waste
  • How to not lose that human connection with AI infusion
