Dear Data Leaders, someone else’s cool AI project doesn't make your project less valuable.
Someone else’s cool AI project doesn’t make your project any less valuable. Don’t let the constant stream of exciting projects and advancements make you doubt your own vision. Keep moving forward and trust in your own unique approach.
Are you tired of feeling like you just can’t keep up with the latest AI projects and advancements? Do you find yourself doubting the value of your own work because it doesn’t seem as flashy or exciting as what others are doing? If so, you’re not alone.
AI has an Instagram problem. Just like Instagram’s endless parade of perfect physiques can make us feel inadequate, the constant stream of exciting AI projects can make us feel like our own work is lacking. But here’s the truth: those impressive projects aren’t representative of the entire field, and they are often oversold by consultants.
So, it’s time to assess your projects according to your own standards and context. Don’t let the shiny objects make you doubt the worth of your work or change your direction just because your competitor started doing something. Instead, stay focused on your vision and trust in your own unique approach.
Of course, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in AI. But instead of feeling overwhelmed by FOMO, use these developments to inspire your own innovation. Just like being inspired by Instagram is fine, changing your life because of FOMO is less helpful.
So, keep pushing forward and maintaining faith in your work. Your project may not be as flashy as some of the others out there, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less valuable or impactful. Maybe you’re training non-deep learning on a structured dataset and wondering if you’re missing out on ChatGPT. But the truth is, you may well be onto something even more impactful, even if it’s not as fancy or hyped up.
In conclusion, someone else’s cool AI project doesn’t make your project any less valuable. Don’t let the constant stream of exciting projects and advancements make you doubt your own vision. Keep moving forward and trust in your own unique approach.
