The State of Insights – February 2024 – An Automated Summary

The third wave of the NewMR study looking at the state of insights has just closed its data collection and we have the views of 330 insight and research professionals from around the world. A few days ago, I shared a word cloud based on one part of the data. As the next step in looking at the data, I used ResearchWiseAI to produce an automated summary. This was achieved by loading a raw export of the 330 responses into the platform and I asked the following question “What is the state of optimism/pessimism in the research and insights world? What are the main things that researchers are positive about and worried about?”

Using ChatGPT as a better search engine

Over the last year, I have started using ChatGPT 4 to increase my productivity and efficiency, and I am keen to share some of what I have learned. In this post, I highlight why and how I use ChatGPT4 as a better way of searching for information. In future posts, I will highlight other ways I use ChatGPT to improve my productivity.


Predictions and Prescriptions for 2024

2024 will be an exciting ride for the world of insights and research. But before I jump into what I think will happen, let’s address the caveats.

An AI’s view of The State of Insights – September 2023

In September, NewMR conducted a study with research and insight professionals to understand the state of research and insights. We will be writing a report on this study next week and sharing the results, but this week we have been experimenting with the data. On Monday and Tuesday, I presented sneak peeks of the study, looking at what insight professionals thought were the main positives and the main negatives of the research industry. Today, I want to share a summary of the data generated 100% via AI using a tool called ResearchWiseAI.


What are the positives about research and insights?

Yesterday, I shared a word cloud showing a summary of the main things that were worrying research and insight professionals. To balance the picture, this post looks at what researchers and insight professionals see as the positives, answering the question, “What are the most positive things about the insights and research world in 2023?”

What is worrying the world of Insights and Research?

In September, NewMR ran a study focusing on the research industry, looking at levels of optimism and pessimism, topics that were seen as positive and negative, and plans for the near future. This study will be analysed over the next week, and a report will be released shortly.

As a first step in conducting the analysis, I looked at a word cloud of the open-ended comments using NewMR’s Word Cloud Plus. The results are interesting and I thought I would share them as a teaser for the upcoming report.
