This weekend: The future of AI in the enterprise, a great piece of taking a product and platform approach, and the White House throws up a nothing burger about regulating AI.

In Case You Missed It: This Week from The DX Report
The world is abuzz about large language models and the promise of AI. But how will all of this play out within the enterprise? We talked to the head of AI research at one tech company to find out.
Your Weekend Reading List
From McKinsey: To succeed, incumbent organizations need to take five actions as they scale their product and platform model transformations.
Snap Analysis: This guide is very closely aligned to the concept I presented recently on Digital Transformation Platforms. It provides a great big picture view of how it all fits together.
From TechBrew: Smaller, specialized models could help unlock new use cases, investors say.
Snap Analysis: As we covered in this week’s DX Report on the future of generative AI in the enterprise and interview with Zoho’s head of AI research, the future of generative AI is going to be one in which it is mixed with various forms of AI, other LLMs, and outside data.
From The Wall Street Journal: Big tech companies adopt voluntary guidelines, such as watermarking artificial content.
Snap Analysis: Not specific to the enterprise, but noteworthy for two reasons. First, it points to the high levels of attention being paid to AI and how organizations are applying it, so beware. Second, because it’s a big nothing burger. This announcement is just fluff that does little (if anything) to move the ball forward.
