Salesforce, Deloitte Digital team up for generative AI
Working with consumer, product and supply chain data mined by ConvergeCONSUMER, the solution lets businesses build customer-facing apps, chatbots and search engines, extract sales and marketing insights and quickly derive value from large datasets. The partnership will “deliver tailored customer experiences, supercharge company productivity and safeguard their data,” the companies said. As the practicality of generative AI for commercial use is influenced by emerging ethical, legal, and policy considerations, Deloitte’s Trustworthy AI framework helps organizations develop safeguards and navigate competing ethical priorities during product development and operation. Supported by Deloitte Legal, the objective is to guide businesses on compliant, strategically motivated AI adoption journeys. Imagine a future where artificial intelligence (AI) transcends traditional boundaries and opens up a world of limitless possibilities.
Data compiled by Salesforce shows 73% of employees perceive generative AI as introducing new security risks, while almost 60% of those intending to use the technology lack knowledge regarding data security measures. Through executive interviews, policy spotlights and news stories on corporate activity, ExecutiveBiz stays on top of what’s shaping the industry and how GovCon leaders are positioning their businesses to win the federal business of tomorrow. “This was very much part of our strategy when we decided the best way to really have this technology impact the world would be through enterprises and through some really strong and complementary partners like McKinsey,” said Martin Kon, president at Cohere. McKinsey said it was working with Cohere to build customized solutions to help improve customer engagement and workflow automation for clients. It added it was also considering using Cohere to increase its internal efficiency and power the knowledge management system at McKinsey.

Over half, 55%, said they are experimenting with generative AI, while 37% are already implementing it to some extent. Nearly four-fifths, or 79% of respondents, believe the technology will increase efficiency within their organization, and just more than half (52%) said it provides opportunities for growth. Rising to the top of the list, CEOs cited geopolitics, the economy and uncertainty as their top challenges.

Producing novel content represents a definitive shift in the capabilities of AI, moving it from an enabler of our work to a potential co-pilot with the ability to augment what humans do. When asked why they chose to adopt generative AI, executives cited the need to improve customer experiences and retention, drive revenue growth, and optimize costs, according to a separate Gartner survey of 2,500 executives. It’s among the findings from the Summer 2023 Fortune/Deloitte CEO Survey, which polls CEOs from around the world on the biggest challenges facing their business.

At the same time, Google Cloud’s goal is to run on carbon-free energy, 24/7, across all data centers by 2030. “Many enterprises are integrating ChatGPT into their operational flow. Employees enter classified correspondences or use the bot to optimize proprietary code,” said Group-IB head of threat intelligence Dmitry Shestakov at the time. “Within just a few months of the launch of the most popular Generative AI tools, one in four people in the UK have already tried out the technology,” said Deloitte’s Paul Lee, partner and head of technology, media and telecommunications research. According to another study by McKinsey, AI adoption has more than doubled since 2017, though the proportion of organizations using the technology has leveled off at just over 50% in the past five years. In the contemporary era, public engagement with technology forms the backbone of its ultimate success or failure.

Deloitte notes AI and generative AI have already begun transforming industries with their capabilities to analyse unstructured and structured data and model it in a way that makes sense to humans. Outside of AI, the Deloitte survey also found a shift in CEOs’ top concerns for their businesses. For the first time since June 2021, attracting talent is no longer the biggest challenge cited by CEOs, with geopolitical and economic uncertainty now the top concern. More than half, or 53%, of CEOs expect their country to enter a recession by the end of this year or next year, even if just 14% say their country is currently in a recession. With the guidance of its Trustworthy AI™ framework, Deloitte assists clients in establishing essential safeguards and striking a harmonious equilibrium among competing ethical considerations throughout the stages of product development and operation.
Maximilian Schroeck, the global chief commercial officer for Salesforce at Deloitte Global, emphasizes the importance of leveraging generative AI technologies responsibly and ethically. Deloitte Digital, with its presence in over 40 countries, will now integrate Salesforce AI services into its existing work, expanding the reach and impact of AI-driven CRM solutions. These teams benefit from the deep AI and cloud experience and engineering experience gained through early adoption and experimentation with Generative AI technologies through 2022, and further scaled through Deloitte’s acquisitions of SFL Scientific, HashedIn Technologies and Intellify.
There is also the risk of inherent bias within the models, owing to the data on which they are trained. No single company can create and curate all of the training data needed for a generative AI model because the necessary data is so expansive and voluminous, measured in tens of terabytes. Another approach then is to train the model using publicly available data, which injects the risk of latent bias and therefore the potential for bias in the AI outputs. While companies appreciate the advantages of emerging AI tools, cost is the top barrier to adoption for 1 in 4 retail industry leaders, a Tuesday report from Honeywell found.
