    Panel Discussion: Responsibly transforming enterprises with GenAI

    We are in a defining moment. The forthcoming revolution powered by Generative AI presents an opportunity for exponential growth. According to the CEO’s Guide to Generative AI – a report by IBM Institute of Business Value, 90% of CEOs expect their C-suite team to shape their organization’s adoption of generative AI. And 85% of execs say generative AI will be interacting directly with customers in the next 2 years. It opens up a world of possibilities for businesses but there are also challenges and limitations associated with it. Strategic investments in this emerging technology, coupled with empowering individuals with the requisite skills to harness it creatively, productively, and ethically, will catalyse a multiplier effect for businesses.
