Thought leaders from the AI industry shared ideas and predictions on the present and future of artificial intelligence at the DLA Piper European Technology Summit.
On the 15th of October 2019, there was the fourth edition of the DLA Piper European Technology Summit with over 350 attendees, fantastic speakers, and two great keynote speakers Thimon de Jong and Yancey Strickler.
The discussed topics were interesting, and below is an outline of my personal top 5 takeaways:
5. We need to “educate” companies and regulators on artificial intelligence
A takeaway that summarizes the contents of the debate is that both companies and regulators need to be educated on artificial intelligence. Companies need to understand the real value of AI for their business, how their model of business is going to change with AI, and how to better exploit it. At the same time, regulators need to look at artificial intelligence as an essential component of the business of companies. Rules and rights of individuals need to be balanced with business needs, also because if individuals receive benefits, they will want that AI is used.
