Bob Powell and David Alan Macchia discuss the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) for the financial advisory profession. Macchia highlights AI's potential advantages, such as cost-efficiency and a unique user experience, but also acknowledges its current limitations in providing accurate advice. He predicts the rise of "digital humans" that merge vast financial knowledge with a human-like interface. The conversation underscores the importance of trust in the advisory profession and debates whether AI can achieve a similar trust level. Both participants emphasize the need for human advisors to adapt and integrate AI into their practices to stay competitive in the future.
