Business Peer Group side discussion: “The Rise of Artificial Intelligence.”
January 13, 2023

With the frequently shifting landscape of business, forming confidential peer groups or networking circles is a great way to help leaders stay ahead. These meetings are ideal for spreading innovative insights, tackling common issues with fresh perspectives, and connecting with professionals who share similar aspirations. Plus, side conversations often provide an opportunity to delve into topics like Artificial Intelligence – something that’s become especially important in retail today!

Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming more and more sophisticated. AI is a computer program that can understand, process, and react to data in the same way that humans do. It can be used for everything from simple tasks like responding to an email to complex ones like driving a car autonomously. As AI technology continues to evolve, it will become increasingly prevalent in our lives. Let’s take a look at why AI will continue to rise in popularity.

The Benefits of AI Technology 

One of the most significant benefits of AI technology is its ability to make processes faster and more efficient. Instead of relying on humans to perform tasks such as customer service inquiries, AI can automate these processes so that they are done quickly and accurately. This frees up time for employees to focus on other important tasks within their organization while still providing customers with high-quality services. In addition, AI can also help organizations save money by automating specific processes which would otherwise require human labor and resources.

Another benefit of AI is the ability to provide data-driven insights that are not possible with traditional methods. This means that organizations can use AI-driven analysis to gain valuable insights into customer behavior, market trends, or even predictive analytics for future decisions. For example, machine learning algorithms can be used to analyze large amounts of data quickly and accurately in order to uncover hidden patterns or relationships between variables which could have an impact on business decisions or strategies.

AI is also being used increasingly in healthcare settings, where it has the potential to revolutionize diagnosis and treatment plans for disease management and prevention. By using AI-driven analysis on patient data such as medical records or imaging scans, doctors can gain valuable insights into a patient’s condition, which could lead to better outcomes for patients overall. In addition, AI technology has already been implemented in some healthcare settings for robotic surgery as well as automated medical decision support systems, which can help doctors make more accurate diagnoses based on a patient’s history and current symptoms.

A recent study has shown that an AI tool called ChatGPT is capable of passing the US medical licensing exams. This raises the question: Could AI tools eventually replace doctors?

The study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of Southern California, found that ChatGPT was able to answer questions on the medical licensing exams with an accuracy of about 70%. This is just shy of the passing rate for human test-takers, which is about 80%. While this may seem like a small difference, ChatGPT is still in its early stages, and as it continues to be developed, its accuracy will improve.

Of course, there are many tasks that doctors perform that go beyond simply answering questions on a test. However, ChatGPT is also capable of performing some of these tasks. For example, the AI tool is able to provide diagnoses and recommend treatments based on a patient’s symptoms. It can also keep track of a patient’s medical history and provide reminders for things like preventative care and medication schedules.

The study’s findings suggest that AI tools could eventually play a role in replacing doctors. However, it’s important to remember that these tools are still in their early stages of development. As they continue to be improved, they will become more and more capable of performing the tasks currently performed by human doctors.


The rise of artificial intelligence technology promises many exciting opportunities across various industries, including healthcare, finance, retail, transportation, and much more. Not only does it offer increased efficiency through automation, but it also provides valuable insights through data-driven analysis, which could lead to better decisions in terms of strategy or operations within an organization. It is clear that AI will continue its rise in popularity due to its numerous benefits – both now and long into the future!
