Effectively Browse Information With AI
The time-consuming search for information can be truly frustrating.
On average, a person spends 25% of their workweek searching for information, yet likely not to have found what they were looking for. Even data workers waste 14 hours weekly due to inefficient data retrieval for analysis.
The good news? AI can help you save significant research time.

This week's discussion is about the new advancements in AI and its impact on the workforce.
