01:22 — This illustrates a reality for most people. “Prompt engineering is not going to make or break your career and you’re not going to see a huge amount of specialized prompt engineers in the future taking the jobs of programmers, engineers, or others,” Toni says. Rather, it will become a skill that everyone will have, such as being able to conduct a Google search.
01:52 — There will be roles like “10x prompt engineers” who will be paid specifically for prompt engineering. Toni suggests that those people will be skilled at using AI tools in general.
02:09 — For companies right now, AI replacing technologies is not a threat — people just need to be aware of this new skill set that’s emerging.
