Generative AI is a type of artificial intelligence that can generate text, images, and other content. When used correctly, it can help improve productivity, create new jobs, and address social challenges.
Accenture Philippines is one of the firms that is willing to train workers on how to use generative AI. The company said that it believes that the adoption of this technology can help address both unemployment and underemployment in the country.
“We are working with our clients to train their people on how to use generative AI,” said Ambe Tierro, Country Managing Director of Accenture Philippines. “We believe that this technology has the potential to create new jobs and help address the skills gap in the Philippines.”
Tierro also said that generative AI can be used to train people by creating automated FAQs and chatbots. This can help to free up workers to focus on more complex tasks, and it can also help to improve the quality of training.
A survey by Accenture found that 99% of C-suite executives plan to grow their investments in AI in the next two years. The survey also showed that over 7 in 10 organizations have specific training programs planned for 2023 to ensure workers are prepared to use generative AI tools.
This shows that there is a growing interest in generative AI among businesses in the Philippines. As this technology continues to develop, it is likely to have a significant impact on the workforce.
The adoption of generative AI can be a positive force for the Philippine economy. By training workers on how to use this technology, businesses can boost productivity, create new jobs, and address social challenges.
