Is it hype? Definitely!
Maybe 2022 will be seen similarly to 2012, when Alexnet made the breakthrough for image recognition with AI. This was the beginning of the exponential development of machine learning in the last 10 years. And 2022 could be a similar moment, this time through developments in the field of Generative AI.

We must achieve sustainable development.
AI will (have to) play a crucial role in this. Complex questions with lots of data are ideal conditions for the use of AI. There is more than enough of that here.

The “problem” of climate change can no longer be “solved”.
Artificial intelligence (AI), or more specifically machine learning, is perhaps the most important technology available to us in this situation.

Trustworthy and human centric AI is a very good approach without question. But the devil is in the details..Read More
