Key Quotes:

  • “I also predicted after Dan Burris that AI would invent art that’s never been invented before. And just if you look at the Colorado festival that happened like two or three days ago, the guy who won with the artwork, it was completely AI-generated.” – Jason Cass
  • “There are talented people flying all over the place. And if you have the ability to offer them lifestyle employment versus the classic, I’m going to bang on you and you should thank God that you have a paycheck style employment, you can get amazing people throughout the country.” – Ryan Hanley
  • “It’s about that behavior of what’s happening with the client. It’s about the agent and how they’re going to use that AI technology, that data to be able to meet that person in a different type of way, what those ways that are going to analyze that. That’s where I think we’re going to say, I mean, we just had data, but we didn’t have anything.” – Jason Cass
