What CTOs Are Learning From Generative AI
InfoWorld, Friday, September 8,2023
Generative AI is ripe with opportunity, and CTOs are definitely paying attention. Here's how three technical leaders see the present and future of GenAI.

Generative AI, or GenAI, is the hot technology of the moment, gaining traction with both enterprises and individual users.

Bloomberg Intelligence research in a June 2023 report says the generative AI market is poised to expand dramatically over the next 10 years, rising to $1.3 trillion from a market size of $40 billion last year.

Accurate risk prediction models can aid risk management efforts in organizations. Here's a look at how risk models work and the business benefits they provide.

One of my favorite consulting clients is an outdoor clothing retailer. It's a highly seasonal business -- summer and winter gear are different, obviously. But fashions, styles and popular color combinations change every year too. The company's buyers must make decisions about the inventory well in advance to order for upcoming seasons. They obsess about ski jackets while you enjoy your summer vacation.

Success isn't just a question of getting the styles right. They must order enough products to meet customer demand, but not too much as to get stuck with expensive excess inventory. That's where a risk prediction model can help.

Security is on every IT leader's mind, so why not discuss the latest threats and response tactics with colleagues and business partners who can share helpful, actionable insights?

Talk may be cheap, but when it comes to IT security, strategic conversations with colleagues, business partners, and other relevant parties can be priceless.

The value of addressing cybersecurity issues through ongoing discussions is getting corporate alignment on effective and robust strategies, says Roger Albrecht, co-lead of the cybersecurity unit at technology research and advisory firm ISG.
