Employee productivity is key

Talking about increasing employee productivity, the endless possibilities of Generative AI are currently being explored by companies in Belgium. So according to recent research by security specialist Kaspersky. For example, from a sample of 500 Belgians, a quarter of respondents (25%) admitted using ChatGPT at work for textual tasks, such as content generation, translation or text enhancement. About the same number (24%) use it as a time saver, such as summarising long texts or taking notes during meetings. These results are confirmed by consumer organisation Testaankoop, which states that 45% of the respondents had used ChatGPT directly through OpenAI or through the Bing search engine for some sort of tasks at home or at work. The customer-facing applications of Generative AI are equally promising, as companies think about integrating the technology into their customer communications. One example is tour operator TUI, which has incorporated ChatGPT's intelligence into their mobile app so that customers can plan their trip with little effort.
