In the ever-evolving landscape of financial services, the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) marks a significant shift, not just in how we process data, but in the very fabric of decision-making and client interaction.


When South Africa’s business landscape continues to face challenges such as load-shedding, the quiet quitting trend, the steady advance of AI, and the widespread datafication of business processes, the question surfaces: is change leadership really worth focusing on?


In line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the movement from localised job markets to a global job market, technology is having a significant influence on the future world of work, with artificial intelligence taking centre stage when it comes to automating business processes.


The global community is facing unprecedented environmental challenges, from climate change to resource scarcity. As the world strives to mitigate the impact of these crises, innovative technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) have emerged as powerful allies in the fight for a sustainable future.


Although machine learning and AI models have been built into many of the apps and platforms we have been using for years, we’re having a different kind of AI moment in 2023. Natural language processing and computer vision models such as OpenAI’s ChatGTP and DALL_E have put AI tools directly into the people’s hands, and many are fascinated and fearful.


In an era of rapid technological advancement, there are three groundbreaking technologies on the horizon that hold the potential to reshape our world. From artificial intelligence to blockchain and renewable energy, these innovations are set to disrupt industries, transform societies, and unlock new possibilities.


From ChatGPT to DALL-E and all the technologies in between, the new wave of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) systems is transforming business at a rapid pace. While employees are optimistic about how AI—and generative AI, in particular—will affect their work, feelings vary considerably by seniority and by country, according to new research released by Boston Consulting Group (BCG).


Artificial intelligence (AI) has made remarkable strides in recent years, raising questions about the future role of journalists in the news industry.

The recent explosion of AI into our daily life is testimony to how fast our world can change, and how thoroughly it can be disrupted. AI has already profoundly changed how schools need to think about assessments. 


We are all familiar with the idea of  AI Singularity – even if we don’t necessarily know the term. Movies like the Terminator series have firmly established the concept in the popular imagination: At some point, machines become self-aware, examine the threats to their existence, and promptly decide to wipe out their biggest threat – we, the humans.


Putting a young South African tech start-up firmly onto the world stage. South African start-up, ExploreAI Academy, has partnered with leading international training provider ALX to train 25 000 African data scientists.
