With the rise of Big Data, organisations have embraced the adoption of artificial intelligence and Large Language Models, changing the way many of us operate on a day-to-day basis. Any change in the status quo, especially when it relates to our workplace operations, is understandably worrying.

Our goal at AutogenAI is to help organisations achieve their goals, through the development of Language Engines that work with the users, rather than instead of or against them. Technology that works with users should balance the goals of the organisation and the needs, including psychological needs, of employees.

At AutogenAI, this is an issue we take seriously, by recognising the stressors employees may be under when faced with this new technology. If you are struggling with the adoption of a new Language Engine in the workplace, here are our top tips for tackling Algorithmic Aversion:

1. Familiarise yourself with the basics of your Language Engine before diving into more advanced features

  • When it comes to learning about your Language Engine, it is important to familiarize yourself with the basics first. Start by testing the engine and understanding the fundamental concepts and basic features. Experimentation is key when it comes to understanding the features and options available. Take the time to explore each one to get a better understanding of how they work.
  • We would recommend testing the ‘Ideator’ to see if it can come up with any novel ideas – if you think these ideas are useful, try and expand them into paragraphs.
  • Once you have a good grasp of the fundamentals, you can begin exploring more advanced features. Work your way up gradually and try to apply what you have learned in practice. We would recommend slowly working your way through each editing tool – initially, give expand, summarise and rephrase a go.
  • Take notes and ask questions if you get stuck. Doing so will help you gain a deeper understanding of your Language Engine and make sure that you don’t miss any important details. Make sure to bring these questions to training sessions, or contact one of the AutogenAI team at any time. Your account manager will be happy to help.

2. Practice using your Language Engine on a smaller scale and in a playful way before attempting more complex tasks

  • Before attempting more complex tasks with your Language Engine, it is important to practice using it on a smaller scale. This will give you an opportunity to become familiar with the technology and become comfortable with using it. By starting small, you can gain confidence in using the technology and work your way up to more complex tasks.
  • We would suggest starting with playful tasks, such as creating a shopping list for an elephant, write a poem about your favourite food, draft a short blog or LinkedIn post. When starting to use the tech for your work, try just using the ideator to start with to help you with ideas to include in your writing.
  • Our Customer Success Team, who have extensive bid writing experience, can provide 1:1 support to identify the ways of using the tool that work best with your individual approach as a creative writer.

3. Take advantage of any available training sessions to learn more about your Language Engine

  • Make the most of any available training sessions or tutorials to learn more about your Language Engine. With the right knowledge, you can take advantage of the various features of the engine to get the most out of it.
  • Use the sessions to build upon the skills you’ve learnt by testing the basics of the engine yourself. Additionally, build your confidence by asking our team of experts the best practice approach to using Language Engines in general, or query how to make the most out of a specific tool.
  • If you feel like you need to learn more about the tools, or simply want a refresher, check out our training videos demonstrating how to use each function.

4. Ask questions and seek out help from co-workers who are more comfortable with  the your Language Engine

  • To become more knowledgeable about your Language Engine, ask questions and seek out help from co-workers. Connecting with colleagues can provide valuable insights that can help you understand your engine better.
  • Use colleagues to bounce ideas off each other, share tips or work together to discuss how you feel a tool is best used.
  • Proficiency and confidence with new technology takes time – teamwork makes this process easier.

5. Take regular breaks to prevent burnout and keep your enthusiasm levels up

  • To stay motivated and productive, it’s important to take regular breaks when using new technology in the workplace. Research suggests that taking regular breaks, you can help prevent burnout and keep your enthusiasm levels up, whilst boosting creativity and productivity.
  • Taking regular breaks can also help to increase engagement with new technology, as it gives you time to reflect on what you have learned and how you can use it in the future.
