Are you already familiar with Generative AI, or Gen AI? This remarkable subset of Artificial Intelligence has the potential to revolutionize a wide range of applications and unlock unprecedented business value. Gen AI enables machines to independently generate content, ideas and solutions that mirror human creativity and problem-solving abilities. Using extensive data sets and advanced algorithms, Gen AI effortlessly produces text, images, audio, video and a wide range of content. This signifies a transformative milestone in the AI landscape, where machines evolve from mimickers to true innovators and creators, paving a unique path in the field of technology.

In this article, we’ll dig into the tangible benefits of integrating Gen AI into your business strategy and explain why it’s an asset you can’t overlook.

The Synergy of Data, Technology, and Optimization

For decades, data and technology have been the foundation of business optimization. After all, the convergence of these two pillars has enabled companies to streamline processes, analyze market trends, make predictions, and so forth. But what if we told you the possibilities could reach even further? Generative AI is a new, emerging technology made possible by the huge availability of computing power and diverse and extensive data sets. The scale and volume of processing power and training data is truly unprecedented and therefore groundbreaking.

A basic example is the following: imagine the fashion industry in which Generative AI leverages existing data to design new clothing lines to match trends and changing customer preferences. In a nutshell, Generative AI takes optimization to the next level by introducing new solutions that drive progress.

Are you among the 81% engaged in Gen AI?

As we currently perceive it, Generative AI is a tool that can serve as a valuable assistant providing you with a competitive advantage in your core business by increasing productivity and precision. It empowers your employees and creative minds by automating tasks so they can focus on uniquely human endeavors. According to research by technology leader Insight Enterprises, a whopping 81% of business leaders are actively developing policies for Generative AI, from defining roles and responsibilities to employee training and data management. This shows an industry-wide commitment to staying ahead in the technology race.

Employee productivity is key

Talking about increasing employee productivity, the endless possibilities of Generative AI are currently being explored by companies in Belgium. So according to recent research by security specialist Kaspersky. For example, from a sample of 500 Belgians, a quarter of respondents (25%) admitted using ChatGPT at work for textual tasks, such as content generation, translation or text enhancement. About the same number (24%) use it as a time saver, such as summarizing long texts or taking notes during meetings. These results are confirmed by consumer organisation Testaankoop, which states that 45% of the respondents had used ChatGPT directly through OpenAI or through the Bing search engine for some sort of tasks at home or at work. The customer-facing applications of Generative AI are equally promising, as companies think about integrating the technology into their customer communications. One example is tour operator TUI, which has incorporated ChatGPT’s intelligence into their mobile app so that customers can plan their trip with little effort.
