The world is in an exhilarating era, where advancements in digital technology and generative artificial Intelligence (AI) are revolutionising the way we work, live, and play.

We are at the beginning of a new decade of innovation, and HP is at the forefront of harnessing the power of AI to create more personalised, meaningful, and secure experiences for everyone.

And South Africa is determined not to get left behind. Particularly as the role and potential of AI in assisting the nation and continent get the United Nations Development Goals (SDG’s) back on track by 2030, which is seen as an imperative and responsibility to be seized by every country.

Projected to add $4 trillion dollars annually to the global economy, AI is also tapped to help bridge the gap between what employees want and what companies need.

This is particularly pivotal in a time of an ever-evolving hybrid work landscape where the potential of AI to drive productivity is well documented. Key insights stemming from the HP Work Relationship Index reveals that 41% of employees don’t yet feel equipped to use AI in their jobs. This is a business barrier that falls on leaders to improve in order to drive growth and better their employees’ relationship to work.

HP recently announced the industry’s largest portfolio of AI PCs at the HP Amplify PartnerConference in Palo Alto, leveraging the power of AI to enhance productivity, creativity, and user experiences in hybrid work settings. This announcement showcases the innovation within the HP universe, that will be brought to customers and businesses globally to ensure that everyone is making the most of AI’s potential.

The company is leading the market with more than 100 AI-enabled products and solutions that make computing and printing more personal and intuitive, and IT management more seamless and simpler.

By harnessing AI as a personal tool, HP is creating more personalised and meaningful work experiences, revolutionising the way we interact with technology and each other.
