Looks like OpenAI is leading, but i find it interesting that Google is in 2nd place!

From a technology lifecycle lens, AI is in the research and development phase (Innovation stage). We're in the era of ferment, where there is abundant technical uncertainty, high variation, and ambiguous user preferences. We are a ways away from the dominant design, where we see an industry standard, well-established preferences, and economies of scale and scope. I'm personally looking forward to how technology will enhance our everyday lives.

I agree. It's interesting to see who's the 'first to market' for enterprise solutions that are secure yet quick to implement. Also, urge to stay relevant is driving companies to integrate generative capabilities into pretty much everything. I don't think this will be sustainable in the long run.

The future of generative AI is uncertain. This is because generative AI is a rapidly evolving field and there is always the possibility that a new company will come up with a breakthrough technology that gives them a significant advantage. I think anything can happen at any time in this digital world!! :)

The rate of change is so fast, I've got the 'spins'

I think OpenAI has the technology advantage, but Microsoft through there partnership with OpenAI will grow it through the enterprise.

The business model which enterprise organizations can scale quickly will have an advantage. Do you think Microsoft is moving fast enough in enabling simple use of this technology?

Microsoft definitely will have an added advantage with AI as they have a large existing customer base of utilities and operating systems.It will be easy for them to register their innovative AI tools embedded within their existing popular inventories directly into customers.

Microsoft will win out in the end. They are just too big of a company to finish anywhere but first.

A quick thought on the above poll:
Open AI might have a first mover advantage for sure, though if we blend the Generative AI technology with domain specific knowledge and core business niche requirements, Google & Microsoft might have an edge. It's interesting to witness the future of Gen AI applications across different business verticals.
I would love to hear other peer's thoughts!

There is room for both it seems. We continue to need 'generic' tools like chatGPT plus adapting to domains. 
What is our future to integrate these two areas and be able to 'recognize' the intent via single front end and route it to appropriate place?

I think Microsoft is in pole position to take the lead and become leader in this due to the investment in OpenAI and initiatives inside Microsoft to include ChatGPT and Generative AI. But Google will also not stay far behind and will try to move to the top position as well.

Microsoft over OpenAI any day as they hold a 49% stake in Open AI LLP and have the power to scale, apply and monetise gen AI. While OpenAI grabs the headlines, Microsoft will take market shares ... but a premium is to be paid!

Absolutely Microsoft. Because they already Co-Owner  to he OpenAI. Microsoft is earning two times therefore.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.56%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.9%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%

I use Promotions / Average Headcount. We do not have clearly defined policies for determining when someone is eligible for a promotion, making the second metric difficult/impossible to calculate.
