2023: Generative Artificial Intelligence & Knowledge Management

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.

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.

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.
