A new McKinsey & Company report shows companies have rushed headlong into adopting the latest AI tools with little preparation for the risks such technology might pose.

According to Tech Brew, the consultancy polled 1,684 respondents across different businesses, regions and industries. Thirty-three percent said their organization uses generative AI regularly in at least one area, and 22% said they routinely interact with it at work.

Of those companies polled that were using AI:

  • Only 21% said their employers have put policies in place for how employees use AI.
  • Only 32% said their company was working to mitigate the risk of inaccurate information.

To be clear, the AI ate my homework is not a great defense.
