Deloitte predicts the top 14 global investment banks could boost their front-office productivity by an average of 25% using Generative AI. 

This can help them earn an additional revenue of 3 million USD per front-office employee in 2026, from an average of $11.3 million during 2020-22.

AI’s Impact on Marketing and Customer Service

#9. Marketing

AI is revolutionizing marketing by enabling personalized, data-driven, and effective campaigns. Here’s how marketers are using AI:

  • Target the right audience 
  • Create personalized content
  • Optimize ad spend 
  • Measure marketing ROI 

Here are some interesting statistics from Influencer Marketing Hub:

  • 61.4% of marketers have used AI in their marketing activities.
  • 44.4% have used AI for content production.
  • 19.2% of marketers spent more than 40% of their marketing budget on AI-driven campaigns

Also, the main reason for using AI in customer service is because it can handle and answer almost 80% of customer queries and cut down customer service costs by 30%.

Investment in AI R&D

#11. Global AI Investment

According to Goldman Sachs economists Joseph Briggs and Devesh Kodn, global AI investments are expected to reach $200 billion by 2025.

Although these investments are upfront, they may take time to show returns, as potential gains rely on factors like adoption and efficiency improvements.

“AI-related investment is climbing from a relatively low starting point and will likely take a few years to have a major impact on the economy,” according to Briggs and Kodnani. 

#12. Private Sector AI Investment

Source

The private sector investments in AI dropped from $93.5 billion in 2021 to $91.9 billion in 2022. The United States and China are the two primary investment sources among the rest of the world countries.

Also, the $1.6 billion dip in private sector AI investments (last year) could be the result of US-based private companies shrinking their investments from $52.88 billion to 47.4 billion in 2022.

However, with 158 billion USD expected in 2025 for AI investment, we can expect steady growth in private investments from here on and upward without any bottlenecks.

#13. Public Sector AI Investment

Public sector investment in AI is relatively small, but it’s growing. The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI) committed 40 billion USD to expand and democratize federal AI R&D in America.

The commitment was made with two core objectives. 

First, NSCAI considered it to be a modest down payment on future AI breakthroughs. Second, the investment was to cope with advancing AI technologies in rival countries.

To sum up, the US government aims to accomplish the following via this investment by 2025:

  • Building secure digital infrastructure across the nation
  • Shared cloud computing access
  • Smart cities to truly leverage AI for the benefit of all Americans

Certainly, NSCAI investment in AI is the first step by the US to defend, compete, and win in the AI era. Standing next to the US are China and Europe.

While the Chinese government is supporting AI R&D via subsidies and government guidance funds, the European Union is also showing deep interest in AI technology. 

For the next EU budget (2021-2027), the authorities have proposed investing at least 7 billion euros (1 billion euros per year) in AI from Horizon Europe and the Digital Europe Programme.

According to the CSET August 2023 report, countries are investing in one another’s AI businesses and research projects, especially top AI investors like China and the US.

Over the past decade, Chinese AI investments have been majorly focused on the American market.

To our surprise, the sum of funds transferred from investors in China to AI companies in the United States has far surpassed any other investment around the world ~ $4,029 million.

Among the Quad countries, the United States has the most decisive AI investment ties to China. Meanwhile, Australia, India, and Japan each have more AI investment activity with China than they do with one another.

Although China is actively participating in global AI investments, the United States still stands as the primary source of AI-related FDI investments in 2022, with some 285 projects.

Meanwhile, India remains the leading destination for AI-related FDI projects in 2022, with multinational companies such as ABB, Accenture, Deloitte, IBM, and Microsoft announcing investments in India.

#15. AI Investment Impact

According to PwC’s Global AI Analysis Report 2023, AI investments are estimated to make a ground-breaking economic impact of $15.3 trillion by 2030

Of these $15.3 trillion, China and North America gained 70% of the global economic impact, equivalent to a total of $10.7 trillion. In comparison, the rest of the world shares the other 30% of gains.

#16. AI Adoption and Growth

Businesses are finding ways to implement AI to automate and streamline processes. As per Forbes, businesses are using AI across a wide range of areas, with the highest adoption rate in customer service (56%) and cybersecurity (51%).

Global spending on AI-centric systems is expected to reach 154 billion USD in 2023, up by 26.9% from 2022. 

The United States is on track to become the largest AI system investment balloon, contributing over 50% of global AI spending. 

However, Western Europe, which represents about 20% of the spending, will experience the fastest growth, with a CAGR of 30% over the next five years.

#17. Ethical Concerns and AI Bias

A notable concern for business owners using AI is the machine’s hallucinations that can risk delivering misinformation to businesses or their customers.

Forbes study revealed that 30% of respondents are concerned about misinformation, while 28% fear bias in AI-generated outputs.

Source

In 2022, we witnessed 110 AI-related legal cases in the United States alone. The numbers are roughly seven times more than in 2016. 

The majority of these cases concerned issues relating to civil, intellectual property, and contract law.

Besides, lawmakers are stepping in to regulate and control the use of AI. 

Here’s how things are shaping out:

  • Stanford University’s 2023 AI Index shows 37 AI-related bills were passed into law globally in 2022. The US led the cause by passing nine laws, followed by Spain with five and the Philippines with four.
  • According to the World Economic Forum report, The European Commission proposed draft rules for an AI Act nearly two years ago.
  • A group of EU lawmakers working on AI legislation is calling for a global summit to find ways to control the development of advanced AI systems.
  • The European Data Protection Board has set up a task force on ChatGPT as a first step towards possible regulation of privacy around AI.

Consumer Attitudes Towards AI

#19. Market Interests

The market interest in AI has increased a lot over the years. The share of companies mentioning AI has gone up from 5.74% in 2020 to 16.63% in 2023.

According to Statista, almost half of the adults in the United States showed interest in artificial intelligence (AI) powered online search products, among other AI-related products.

#21. Positive and Negative Customer Sentiments Towards AI

A report from Business Wire suggests that 73% of consumers believe AI has a positive impact on their lives and how they interact with brands. 

Roughly all generations agree they’d be willing to engage with AI if it would solve problems faster; however, the report also suggested that 45% of respondents expressed a lack of understanding of how these technologies are implemented.

The report boils down to the fact that customers are willing to engage with AI, but they surely need better transparency into how the systems work and how they use consumer data.

Environmental Impact of AI

The datasets used to train large AI models are enormous and require a significant amount of electricity to run. 

According to research by the University of Massachusetts, training an AI model can require electricity up to 656,347 kWh

Most importantly, the same training produces about 626,155 pounds of carbon dioxide.

The emission is 300x more than a round-trip flight between New York and San Francisco – nearly 5x the lifetime emissions of the average car.

Key Takeaways

In my experience, the use of generative AI will keep growing. Popular systems like DALL-E 2, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney will upgrade to produce incredibly detailed images from a text prompt in a matter of seconds.

Businesses will integrate AI into their business operations and treat it like a team member, and solopreneurs can make it their virtual assistant.

And lastly, AI will redefine how businesses talk to their customers. With AI doing the heavy lifting and humans monitoring it and personalizing responses, AI will make customer service lightning-fast and improve customer experience for all businesses worldwide.
