New research has found that generative AI and other rapidly evolving technologies will usher in a future for business which will bring physical and digital worlds together.
Accenture in its report estimates that as much as 40 per cent of all working hours will be supported or augmented by language-based AI. Among business leaders, 98 per cent of respondents agree AI foundation models will play an important role in their organisation’s strategies over the next three to five years.
“The next decade will be defined by three mega technology trends—cloud, metaverse and AI—which collectively will collapse the distance of our digital and physical worlds,” said Paul Daugherty, group chief executive of Accenture Technology.
“While generative AI will have far-reaching impact, leaders must dive in now to achieve its full promise, as it will require significant investments in data, people, and customizing foundation models to meet organizations’ unique needs,” he added.
