Many CIOs are wringing their hands over generative AI. No, the apocalyptic visions of the groundbreaking new technology replacing us – even destroying us – aren’t keeping them up at night.
Rather, they’re worried about how best to arm their employees as quickly and safely as possible with what could turn out to be the most consequential information technology of the decade. Generative AI chatbots like OpenAI’s ChatGPT are emerging as the ultimate no-code content-generation tools, with the capability to empower virtually any employee to produce drafts of budgets and customer proposals – even advertising jingles and presentation art – in just seconds. Many of the chatbots can even generate code on the fly in programming languages like C++ and Python.
