91 percent of enterprise AI leaders believe generative AI can drive efficiency


Deloitte surveyed 2,835 business and technology executives involved in implementing generative AI in their organizations.

Some 62 percent of respondents said they are enthusiastic about the technology. However, this enthusiasm is tempered by a degree of uncertainty, cited by 30 percent of respondents.

Executives believe that generative AI will lead to significant changes in their companies and industries over the next three years. Some 79% of respondents expect significant changes, with 31% expecting them in less than a year.

According to the study, 44% of respondents believe their company has a high or very high level of expertise in generative AI. Companies that report a very high level of expertise are more positive about generative AI, but also feel more pressure and threat.
