The One Skill OpenAI Says Will Matter Most in 2024

The key skill that will matter most in 2024 is human communication - the ability to read, write, and speak effectively. Mastering these skills will prepare people for interacting with both humans and future AI systems.


  • Logan Kilpatrick of OpenAI believes prompt engineering is less important than reading, writing, and speaking skills. These enable effective human communication.
  • He sees these communication abilities as the core competencies needed to interact with Humans and future AI agents.
  • Kilpatrick argues that humans already interact with "Human General Intelligence" through relationships and work. The skills needed for this are similar to those required to interact with future Artificial General Intelligence.
  • His perspective comes from working at OpenAI on developer relations and bridging AI capabilities to real-world applications.
  • Mastering human communication will future-proof skills needed to leverage AI progress in years ahead.
