The Gen AI Shift

Transformative Influence on Business Landscape

AI has taken off this year, and as we delve into the current state and future trajectory of the technology, let's begin by examining McKinsey's “State of AI 2023” report. Curated by Mads Kalør, CTO of Kaunt – a trailblazer in AI solutions – this synopsis distils the key findings of the report while offering a unique perspective from the cutting-edge world of AI implementation. Notably, it offers a distinctive viewpoint from the forefront of AI implementation, shedding light on where we stand and the exciting path that lies ahead.

The world of business is undergoing a seismic shift as the transformative power of generative AI (gen AI) takes center stage.

"It’s amazing how quickly the conversation around generative AI has evolved. Just a few months ago, the conversation in the C-suite was pretty rudimentary, focused on trying to understand what it was and seeing what was hype versus what was reality. Now in just about six months, business leaders are having much more sophisticated conversations."

The findings from McKinsey's 2023 Global Survey underscore the rapid proliferation of gen AI tools, with a striking one-third of organizations already incorporating them regularly in at least one business function. As Bryce Hall, Associate Partner at McKinsey, highlights,"High performers are particularly strong in staying focused on value, and then rewiring their organization to capture that value."
