Artificial Intelligence (AI) is truly a General Purpose Technology (GPT) and will be become embedded into everything we do in our personal and work lives – nothing will be untouched by AI. It is often compared to electricity as being so ubiquitous, disruptive and revolutionary. But what really is AI and what it is not? How will humans interact with the technology? Will it take over, replace our jobs, make life easier, or more difficult? We will explore how AI is being implemented today, some of its history and the future developments. AI has been around at least since 1956 but why after going through a number of “AI Winters” and disappointments is it succeeding today and here to stay? The presentation will demonstrate live some of its capabilities – don’t worry no coding required!
