To best understand generative AI (GenAI), look at it through bifocal lenses. Through the top lens, one sees the long view of big, looming issues, such as accuracy, privacy, and bias, as well as GenAI’s potential impact on “knowledge workers” and even economy-wide job losses and societal risks. While this view is important, we have heard over and over that it’s not helpful to executives and board members because it’s difficult to translate from the generic insight that millions of jobs will be impacted to what it means for their businesses today.
