According to McKinsey's research findings, generative AI stands as a pivotal turning point and a landmark technology in the development of AI. It is poised to spearhead the shift in new technological paradigms, ushering in novel business models, heightened productivity, and societal progress across various industries. Every sector holds the potential for a certain degree of disruption, and in the foreseeable future, generative AI is well-positioned to achieve end-to-end automation of business processes. The journey of digital transformation is an ongoing endeavor, 2023 is heralded as the breakout year for generative AI, witnessing an explosive growth in various types of generative AI tools
OpenAI has introduced ChatGPT for Enterprise, delivering enhanced speed, advanced data analytics, robust security and privacy safeguards, shareable prompt templates, and extensive customization options. Moreover, the fine-tuning capabilities of GPT Turbo, the principal approach for deploying large language models (LLM) in enterprise settings, empower organizations and developers to construct their own ChatGPT solutions by integrating their proprietary data with tailored use cases to ensure more precise, secure, and targeted responses.

After the Copilot integrated new AI capabilities into Microsoft 365, Microsoft has recently announced the seamless integration of Python and Excel. This allows Excel users to harness the power of Python without the need for any additional setup.

Midjourney has recently unveiled its INPAINTING feature, it enables easy fine-tuning of specific areas withoutstarting from scratch. By automatically filling gaps or completing missing areas, it leads to optimal outcomes.
Other remarkable instances of generative AI models include Suno, a text generation music AI model, and HeyGen's one-click translation video feature, etc. Notably, Magic Loops has introduced the fastest and most straightforward approach to automating software writing and execution. This cutting-edge tool integrates LLM with code, harnessing generative AI to generate a functional 'loop.' This significantly streamlines workflows within minutes, with the aim of bridging the gap in coding skills to pave the way for a brighter future through automation, potentially enabling one programmer to support every five individuals.

In China, ERNIE Bot (文心一言), a new-gen generative AI product and Baidu's self-developed knowledge-enhanced LLM, is now fully open to the general public on August 31st, becoming the first Chinese-native AI app to claim the top spot on Apple Store's list of free apps. According to various public evaluations by sources like People's Daily, Xinhua News Agency, and Tsinghua University, ERNIE Bot has the potential to surpass ChatGPT in comprehensive capabilities, positioning it significantly ahead of other domestic large models. Other Chinese tech giants like Tencent have officially introduced their self-developed Hunyuan LLM, while Ant Group unveiled its specialized financial LLM designed to meet the specific needs of the financial industry in early September.
