From ChatGPT to AI bots for customer interactions, artificial intelligence has become integral to businesses across the world, including India. Companies across India are now using AI (specifically Generative AI) to develop or support their businesses.
Generative AI such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT has caught attention due to its ability to understand language complexity, context and intent, said JM Financial in a recent sectoral update note. “OpenAI is not alone as Google, Facebook, Alibaba and others are all training their own versions,” the report added.
