A whopping 62% of respondents said they don't have the skills to effectively and safely use generative AI. Over half of the respondents (53%) also said they didn't know how to get the most value out of generative AI.
Particularly, 43% of the respondents felt they didn't know how to use generative AI while keeping first-party data secure.
This is a common concern with using generative AI in the workplace because generative AI models typically use user data and input to further train their models, which puts the security of the data you are inputting in question.
The feeling of lacking the proper skillset is also shared by a majority of business leaders (70%) who believe that their teams don't have the skills to safely use generative AI. However, the business leaders could be to blame for the lack of team members' preparedness.
