The launch of ChatGPT — a chatbot technology that can mimic human-like understanding and generate well-crafted, conversational responses — marks a pivotal moment for artificial intelligence (AI). Similar to the mainframe era of the 1950s, the rise of PCs in the 1980s and 1990s, and more recently the mobile and cloud era, AI could become the next technology platform that drives significant productivity gains and transforms our world.
The advancement of AI systems has resulted in increased adoption of the technology by various organizations, including businesses and governments. While the integration of AI within the economy brings excitement, it also raises questions about its impact on productivity, the potential displacement of human workers, and whether it will be used ethically. While limited adoption prevents us from being able to fully measure the effects AI could have on the workplace, the chart above summarizes the cost savings and revenue benefits noted by firms that have implemented AI within their organizations. On the cost side, the functions most widely benefiting from AI adoption were supply chain management (52%), service operations (45%), strategy and corporate finance (43%), and risk (43%). On the revenue side, respondents broadly saw increases in marketing and sales (70%), product and/or service development (70%), and strategy and corporate finance (65%). While there are fair criticisms of AI, the potential benefits are clear. As we continue to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of AI, we must work to ensure that this powerful technology is harnessed in a way that benefits both individuals and society as a whole. By doing so, we can unlock the full potential of AI as the next transformative technology platform.
