BCG Executive Perspectives – Artificial Intelligence: Ready to Ride the Wave?

There’s a reason AI has risen to the top of many executives’ agendas. It’s difficult to overstate the ways the technology has already changed the world—and this is just the beginning. AI is leading a global shift in human activity away from routine labor and toward creative endeavors, enhancing productivity, sharpening analytics capabilities, and vastly improving the consumer experience.

And according to a BCG-MIT SMR survey, 84% of respondents believe that harnessing AI is increasingly becoming a key source of competitive advantage, while 75% say that AI has allowed them to move into new business areas. But given its ever-expanding application, AI may soon be more than just a way to gain a competitive edge. It could become essential to survival. The pressure is on.

Leaders looking to improve their organizations’ AI capabilities should start by understanding the following trends and considering what they mean in the marketplace today.

At this point, AI is by no means a niche area of investment or capability. Since the advent of the pandemic, more than half of all companies have accelerated their adoption of the technology, which is also gaining increasing attention from VC investors. A closer look at spending suggests that businesses are particularly focused on AI’s potential in four areas: optimization, personalization, automation, and predictive maintenance. Collectively, these capabilities can be used to improve the consumer experience—via self-driving cars, smart homes, new therapeutics, curated content offerings, and more. They are also revolutionizing industries. Customer forecasting, cybersecurity, and diagnostic abilities are just a few of the many applications constantly making progress thanks to AI.

Despite these advancements—as well as the technology’s hidden cultural benefits and positive effects on employees—very few companies are reaping the corresponding financial rewards. Discovery and implementation are important early steps in effective AI usage, but many organizations stop there. Firms that see the greatest returns from their investments reimagine processes across the enterprise while putting a premium on learning between humans and machines. Successful businesses recognize that harnessing the full power of AI is ultimately a strategic, not technological, endeavor.

In fact, many of the prevailing obstacles to effective AI use aren’t related to technology. A lack of data capabilities poses a critical challenge, but labor market dynamics and broader societal issues are concerns as well.

It’s up to leaders to address these challenges while identifying the best path forward for their organizations. Harnessing the full power of AI is no easy task, but it’s an essential one for surviving and thriving now and in the years ahead. The following actions—though not exhaustive—are key elements of an executive playbook for strengthening AI capabilities.

McKinsey Global Survey on AI 2021

The results of our latest McKinsey Global Survey on AI indicate that AI adoption continues to grow and that the benefits remain significant— though in the COVID-19 pandemic’s first year, they were felt more strongly on the cost-savings front than the top line. As AI’s use in business becomes more common, the tools and best practices to make the most out of AI have also become more sophisticated.
We looked at the practices of the companies seeing the biggest earnings boost from AI and found that they are not only following more of both the core and advanced practices, including machine-learning operations (MLOps), that underpin success but also spending more efficiently on AI and taking more advantage of cloud technologies. Additionally, they are more likely than other organizations to engage in a range of activities to mitigate their AI-related risks—an area that continues to be a shortcoming for many companies’ AI efforts.

AI adoption and impact

A majority of survey respondents now say their organizations have adopted AI capabilities, as AI’s impact on both the bottom line and cost saved is growing.

Findings from the 2021 survey indicate that AI adoption is continuing its steady rise: 56 percent of all respondents report AI adoption in at least one function, up from 50 percent in 2020. The newest results suggest that AI adoption since last year has increased most at companies headquartered in emerging economies, which includes China, the Middle East and North Africa: 57 percent of respondents report adoption, up from 45 percent in 2020. And across regions, the adoption rate is highest at Indian companies, followed closely by those in Asia–Pacific. As we saw in the past two surveys, the business functions where AI adoption is most common are service operations, product and service development, and marketing and sales, though the most popular use cases span a range of functions. The top three use cases are service-operations optimization, AI-based enhancement of products, and contact-center automation, with the biggest percentage-point increase in the use of AI being in companies’ marketing-budget allocation and spending effectiveness.

Finally, respondents say AI’s prospects remain strong. Nearly two-thirds say their companies’ investments in AI will continue to increase over the next three years, similar to the results from the 2020 survey.

Zero-emission strategy and digitization of maritime logistics – strategic course of the Baltic Sea and Space Cluster

Representatives of large, medium and small companies, maritime education, media representatives and managers of HUBs of the Baltic Sea and Space Cluster met in Gdynia for a business breakfast on December 7 this year. Due to the prevailing pandemic and the safety of the participants, 25 people participated in the meeting.

The meeting was attended, among others, by Przemysław Sztandera, president of the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone and prof. Adam Weintrit, rector of Gdynia Maritime University, lawyer Matusz Romowicz from Legal Marine, and Piotr Witek from Moore Rewit, Captain Alfred Naskręt, director of the Gdynia Maritime School, Monika Kozakiewicz and Adam Potrykus, Nauta Shipyard presidents, and Jacek Milewski, Shipyard Crist , Chief Financial Officer.

The Hydromega company was represented by director Michałowski. Jakub Roszkiewicz (Biprograf) and Wojciech Panfil (Elmech-ASE) came from the ASE Technology Group. Marcin Więckowski and Robert Widomski were from Whizzbrand. The meeting was attended by Maciej Spigarski, a long-term sales director of the well-known manufacturer of Galeon yachts. There was also the Cluster Management Board and representatives of the Cluster Projects Office. The media was represented by Cezary Spigarski, President of the Management Board of the Foundation for the Promotion of Ship Industry and Maritime Economy, publisher of the OficynaMorska.pl portal and Mateusz Kowalewski, president of the board, publisher of GospodarkaMorska.pl and MarinePoland.com.

Capt. Alfred Naskręt and prof. Marek Grzybowski welcomed the participants of the meeting. The Baltic Sea and Space Cluster has carried out fundamental organizational changes and has transformed into a cluster of innovative HUBs. This is a consequence of the evolution of the cluster that changed the traditional Triple Helix cluster into the HUB of international projects ten years ago. Projects are carried out with porters from the Baltic Sea region and with clusters operating under the European Cluster Collaboration Platform.

– We have transformed into a “Cluster” of hubs, i.e. specialist organizations with a high innovation potential – said Marek Grzybowski, president of the Baltic Sea and Space Cluster for the GospodarkaMorska portal, emphasizing that it is planned to prepare projects that will be implemented for the needs of the international market.
