While some worried conversations have focused on the potential problems AI could cause, a separate, positive, and vibrant narrative is unfolding. Countless articles and discussions highlight the positive strides AI is making in various fields, debunking anxieties surrounding AI-induced dystopian futures. The notion of AI replacing humans has been diluted by a more balanced perspective which emphasises collaboration and augmentation over replacement.

I, myself, used to be curious about the potential impacts of AI on our professional world, and even visualised a future similar to that of the humans in Pixar’s ‘Wall-E’. However, after a few months of working with remarkably bright colleagues, I have come to realise that AI can be applied in various ways to create positive and human-led impact.

At AutogenAI, we have harnessed the power of AI to craft a transformative, AI-powered bid and proposal tool for our clients. Our Generative AI solution serves as a catalyst for enhancing our client’s professional capabilities rather than overshadowing them.  They benefit from the automation of the more mundane tasks associated with bid writing: getting a first draft completed, proofreading, and editing to within word count. Our software can also quickly extract key concepts from tenders and proposals, provide a useful summary of what they might spend hours reading and re-reading these documents for, and helping our clients produce high- quality, winning bids and proposals in a fraction of the time.

AI will never replace the need for humans in a bid and proposal setting: it can only function based on the data it is given and lacks the ability to form strong emotional connections, which are essential in a successful sales function. Instead, AI enhances human capability, with those who use it likely to outperform those who don’t. Rather than replacing human labour, AI augments human capability and enables people to achieve more than they would be able to without it. AI can provide insights, automate mundane tasks, and help users make decisions more quickly and accurately. By leveraging AI technology, people can get more done in less time, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks that require creativity and innovation. Those who use AI will be able to work smarter and faster than those who do not, giving them significant productivity advantages.

We should perceive AI as a collaborative tool that successful enterprises will embrace. AI is not intended to take our jobs; rather, its purpose is to assist us in retaining and excelling in them.
