The report revealed that close to 65% of workers in Malaysia will potentially use generative artificial intelligence (AI) for between 5% and 20% of their regular work activities. It also highlighted that generative AI has the potential to unlock US$113.4bil in productive capacity in the country’s economy, equivalent to one-quarter of GDP in 2022.
