The topic of artificial intelligence (A.I.) has held our fascination in popular culture for decades. From Isaac Asimov’s seminal I, Robot in the 1950s to Spielberg’s movie A.l. and current TV hit Westworld, the concept of a machine, a software program, or a bot thinking and acting like a human being has intrigued us. But while A.I. in fiction is usually portrayed as something of a threat to mankind, the reality of its use today is something that is extremely beneficial. It is incredible to think of new insights being made through A.l. analysing millions of pieces of data, finding patterns and creating automated procedures and processes.
We paid a visit to the recent A.I. Expo in Amsterdam, Europe’s leading business conference in matters of A.I. to gain insights into latest thinking on the topic.
