Introducing Lightful’s AI Squad

When ChatGPT was first introduced, the team at Lightful spent hours diving into the world of generative AI to see what it could do. We realised in order to grasp its full potential we needed a team of cross-functional experts to focus on this emerging technology. So we assembled an internal ‘AI Squad’ composed of designers, digital coaches, engineers and product experts. As a result, we have been able to quickly innovate, iterate and prototype ideas with nonprofits, co-creating solutions to their challenges and keeping humans at the centre of the design process.

What the breakneck speed of AI means for Philanthropy

A few years ago, the Tour de France had a time trial stage in London. I wasn’t a massive cycling fan, but this was a rare opportunity to watch the world’s most famous cycling race in the flesh, and so I joined the thousands of other people lining the pavements to watch. After waiting an age, and before we saw it, we heard the surprisingly deafening rumble of the peloton. And then, in seconds, it was gone.

ChatGPT for the nonprofit sector: Potential and Pitfalls

The latest technical innovation that has got the internet abuzz is ChatGPT, so I wanted to write about what it means for nonprofits. Given that it is a chatbot that can answer pretty much any question, I decided to ask ChatGPT to help me write this blog post to demonstrate how it works. As well as being pleasingly meta, this also shows how it works and its limitations through a sort of human-to-AI interview with my thoughts in parentheses…
