Research Roundup: AI edition


Generative AI isn’t just a good idea, it’s now the No. 1 type of AI solution being deployed. In a survey recently conducted by research and analysis firm Gartner, more than a quarter of respondents (29%) said they’ve deployed and are now using GenAI. The most common way of using GenAI, the survey found, is embedding it in existing applications. Yet respondents said only about half of their AI projects (48%) make it into production. Even when that happens, it’s slow. Nearly half the respondents (49%) said it’s difficult to estimate and demonstrate an AI project’s value. They also cited a lack of talent and skills (42%), lack of confidence in AI technology (40%) and lack of data (39%). Over half the leaders surveyed (55%) say they’re concerned about having enough AI talent. And nearly two-thirds (65%) say they wouldn’t hire someone who lacked AI skills. Yet fewer than 4 in 10 users (39%) have received AI training from their company. And only 1 in 4 companies plan to offer AI training this year. The mismatch between AI skills supply and demand was also examined recently by market watcher IDC. It expects that by 2026, 9 of every 10 organizations will be hurt by an overall IT skills shortage.
