Oh, which to choose? There are major opinions that are stirring within our industry. Our Holmes Murphy Architects and Engineers team members have put our heads together to clear through the flurry. So, what am I talking about? Simple — Artificial Intelligence (AI). But is it really all it’s cracked up to be? Maybe, maybe not. It depends on you and your business.

Here’s what I can tell you. AI is being touted as a potential threat to the very way that professional services are provided. It’s important to note, though, that we are still very much in the infancy stages of the AI movement. This means there are many questions arising that need to be considered, as the practice of AI in the professional services world evolves. Questions like:

  • What is AI?
  • What can be done with AI?
  • What is the standard of care when using AI?
  • Who owns what AI produces?
  • What are other firms doing with AI?

The questions we’re hearing also pertain to the ethical considerations and standards when using AI.

As we look to the future of AI, I thought it would be helpful to share a new whitepaper our Architects & Engineers team created that aims to provide insights and opinions on these matters. It highlights both the concerns about AI’s impact on professions and the optimistic perspective of AI as a tool to enhance productivity and the quality of client work.

We’d also love for you to reach out to us to us to talk more in-depth about AI, and how it could impact your firm. Our experts have been studying it very closely, and we’d be happy to have a conversation with you and see what you are doing with AI!
