Generative AI has been on the minds of many as of late. It’s hard to not come across a personal or professional conversation where AI doesn’t come up. Every industry, business, individual is only at the beginning of their journey of understanding what it means to work alongside these emerging technologies.
Foundation models and generative AI are having every industry leader ask themselves: what now? Is it all ‘tech hype’ or is this genuinely a technology that’ll change the world as we know it?
The reality is that these technologies are reshaping industry and revolutionizing the way we approach problem solving on a daily basis. The question should no longer be: what now, but rather, how about now? Using these technologies to elevate your business is key to remain competitive in today’s world.
While using this technology is critical, it’s incredibly important to discern between the genuine breakthroughs and the overhyped promises of these technologies. Generative AI should be viewed as another tool in your toolbox rather than the whole picture. This means taking the time to understand its capabilities and limitations. Taking courses, reading articles, and educating your business on the practical applications of the technology should be your first go-to.
What Can be Done to Prepare?
After reading every article, listening to podcasts and earning a micro credential on the subject, companies may still be lost on where to begin in applying it to their own business.
