Key thinkers discuss AI

The theme we’re looking at is the topic of AI: how will machine learning affect everything?

“The big question of now is how we reap and harvest the full potential of an extraordinary flood of technologies from AI, sensors and blockchain, and so on, in ways that actually make our lives better.”

“Everything and anything that involves an algorithm of some type, which is self-propagated by a machine is called AI, but it’s very difficult to call it artificial intelligence.” 

“For me, the humanity element is about the ability to apply wisdom, apply judgment and that sense of innovation and imagination that cannot be replicated by a machine.”
