Generative Artificial Intelligence & Knowledge Management

1000 Hrs, 8 June 2023; Taj West-End Hotel

Generative AI has taken the world by storm, revolutionizing the ways of communication, work, and innovation. ChatGPT, with its 100 million users, stands as a testament to the rapid adoption and widespread impact of this cutting-edge technology. Even in its early stages, generative AI is already shaping the future across various domains, and its influence on our lives is set to grow exponentially. Embracing this powerful tech will open doors to unimaginable possibilities, ushering in a new era of creativity, efficiency, and progress.

Generative AI has a diverse range of applications that go beyond text, video, image, speech generation, and data augmentation. Generative AI has the potential to significantly accelerate AI adoption, even in organizations lacking deep AI or data-science expertise. While significant customization still requires expertise, adopting a generative model for a specific task can be accomplished with relatively low quantities of data or examples through APIs or by prompt engineering. Globally, markets are becoming more dynamic. Businesses are constantly being disrupted and transformed by technology.

The next big wave of change in the future of work will be sparked by new applications of artificial intelligence. The pace of the change and adoption of Generative AI has critical implications for organizations and sectors.

AI has the potential to add US$957 billion, or 15 percent of India’s current gross value in 2035. The combination of the technology, data and talent that make intelligent systems possible has reached critical mass, driving extraordinary growth in AI investment. The country remains the most competitive in South Asia yet trails many other G20 countries in AI. That is despite Indian companies adopting AI technology at a larger scale, the country’s investments in tech infrastructure and the improving tech skills of its citizens.

Vibrant AI ecosystems are based on five pillars: universities, large companies, startups, policy makers and multi-stakeholder partnerships. Southern India has been fostering growth and innovation through multi- stakeholder engagement models. It is important to strengthen regional AI research and development ecosystem, including through better international cooperation.

CII Global Knowledge Summit 2023 will deliberate and highlight the way forward for Generative AI to empower and foster Knowledge Management in organizations.
