It would be true if we said that World AI show has been nothing short of an information mine. With great keynotes and discussions lined up, the show started on right foot.
AI is not only a technology, it is a mindset. It is a way to see the world, a way of problem-solving.”
– Oussama Berqi, Head of Data, Careem UAE ,a popular ride-booking app.
AI has seeped into our way of living. It is bringing relevancy into context, whether it be in social media, entertainment, travel and Retail. We are able to make quicker and better decisions and avoid the infamous “decision fatigue”.
World AI show brought very interesting discussions to the table , for instance, “the trolley problem” defined as “A trolley out of control, is running down a trail and there are two paths – Will you sacrifice one person to save 5 people?”Will a robotic vehicle have the “intelligence” to ask this same question? which sparked an interesting reply from Ivan Kristoff “When we say – the machine did it -we are merely transferring liability! The responsibility always lies with the human”.
The ever prevalent ambivalence of “To AI or not to AI” gathered a lot of interest. We as humans are ever resistant to change and seek the solace of comfort. The question that stares in our faces now is “do we choose fear over growth or ride this wave of AI ?”. AI has paved its way in insurance, banking, finance, HR and bringing in a superior customer
