Accenture Technology Vision 2024: "Human by Design" Technologies Will Reinvent Industries and Redefine Leaders by Supercharging Productivity and Creativity


New research from Accenture (NYSE: ACN) finds the world is in the midst of a massive technology shift, as AI and other disruptive technologies become "Human by Design"?much more human-like and intuitive for people to use?and usher in a new era of unprecedented productivity and creativity. The research further suggests that as human-centric technologies wield even greater capabilities, are easier to interact with and become even more seamlessly embedded across every aspect of our lives, we are moving toward a world where the technology around us will become more omni-present, yet also more invisible.

Accenture's Technology Vision 2024: "Human by Design: How AI Unleashes the Next Level of Human Potential" explores how after years of exponential innovation, technology?especially generative AI?is becoming more human in its nature. And as technology evolves to be more human-centric, it drives substantially greater capabilities for people to amplify their potential and reinvent business as we know it. According to Accenture research, generative AI has the potential to impact 44% of all working hours across industries, enable productivity enhancements across 900 different types of jobs and create $6 to $8 trillion in global economic value.

"As AI, spatial computing and body-sensing technologies evolve to a point where tech appears to imitate human capabilities and seem invisible, what you'll see left are the people?empowered with new capabilities to accomplish things they once considered impossible," said Paul Daugherty, chief technology and innovation officer at Accenture. "This important seismic shift in the way people work, live and learn will accelerate a wave of unprecedented change across industries, from retail and entertainment to medicine and manufacturing. Organizations that act now to reinvent their business and ways of working using ?human by design' technologies will redefine what it means to be an industry leader."

The study identifies four key trends in the move to "human by design" technologies:

"Human-centered technologies like generative AI are poised to unleash human potential and deliver a staggering array of business and societal benefits, but only if we take a balanced, ?human by design' approach that ensures these technologies are used fairly and responsibly," added Daugherty. A full 93% of executives agree that with rapid technological advancements, it is more important than ever for organizations to innovate with purpose.

Unveiled today at CES 2024, the Technology Vision 2024 findings were presented by Daugherty during a livestreamed mainstage presentation from 3:00 ? 3:40 p.m. PST. Click here to view the session live, or on replay, and download the full report here.
