Wrapping up conferences for the year? Here are things CEOs (and other senior executives for that matter) need to know about ChatGPT and Generative AI
If you've been attending industry conferences lately, you've undoubtedly noticed the spotlight on ChatGPT, Generative AI, and the broader AI landscape. While there's a lot of talk, not all of it is actionable. CEOs and senior leaders are looking for clear insights. Here's what you need to know:
The primary goal of Generative AI isn't just about reducing costs. According to the latest Mckinsey report, It's about enhancing productivity and speeding up processes. While there are instances of companies replacing staff with AI, these are exceptions. The real value of Generative AI lies in amplifying human productivity. As Charles Morris from Microsoft points out, think of Generative AI as a co-pilot, assisting humans to achieve tasks more efficiently.
ChatGPT is a prominent player in the LLM space, but it's not alone. With the rise of models like Microsoft's Gorilla and Facebook's Llama, you'll likely be dealing with multiple LLMs soon. It's essential to be vigilant. Some tech vendors might overstate their AI capabilities, and others might not be transparent about their model's limitations. Chris Nichols from South State Bank suggests a thorough evaluation of each model's strengths and potential pitfalls.
At Allganize, we provide transparency on the LLMs we offer and work closely with our customers to ensure we are meeting their security and privacy requirements.
Remember the impact of Lotus 1-2-3 back in the day? ChatGPT plays a similar transformative role today. However, just as Lotus had its challenges, so did ChatGPT. It's crucial to be aware of its limitations and ensure consistent usage across teams. And while ChatGPT is powerful, many of its extended capabilities come from additional plugins.
The age-old adage "garbage in, garbage out" holds true for Generative AI. The quality of the data you feed into these models will directly influence the output. It's not just about having data; it's about having the right, high-quality data. Focus on specifics, whether it's sales data, customer information, or performance metrics.
Generative AI tools need guidelines. It's essential to establish best practices for their use. This includes documenting prompts, reviewing AI-generated content, and adhering to internal documentation standards. As Nichols points out, structured documents can significantly reduce AI errors.
Embracing AI comes with its set of challenges, especially concerning social, ethical, and cyber risks. Whether you're partnering with an AI provider to manage data models or handling it in-house, having a robust AI policy is non-negotiable. This policy should outline guidelines and best practices for responsible and ethical AI use. It's not just about leveraging the power of AI; it's about navigating potential ethical dilemmas and ensuring that the technology aligns with your company's values and societal responsibilities.
