Despite all the progress for industrial and consumer use cases, we are still at the very beginning of exploring the use of AI systems. The dynamic of innovation within AI is unique for a technology that so quickly has become the underlying framework of our daily digital lives.
By its capacity to process a lot of data, AI can help to acknowledge an individual's situation and preferences in more detail. From entertainement tailored to your taste to personalized medicine, this leads to exciting use cases where AI can support recommendations and decisions.
Autonomous cars are the most prominent example when it comes to the benefits of automation through AI but are far from being the only use case were AI transforms the world how we know it. By being increasingly capable not only to do easy but ever more complex tasks, AI speeds up a variety of processes in compannies, governments and our daily lives.
Not only since machine generated text is indistinguishable from human-written pieces, ethical questions regarding the consequences of AI arise. The scaled effects of automated decisions make it necessary to dive deep into the hidden structures of our society and not let machines repeat our biases.
As a horizontal technology, AI can potentially affect every industry. As long as data is available, it can use it to learn in every domain. This also implies that nearly everyone will sooner or later have to deal with AI - in one way or another. Job profiles will require new competences and employees need to level up their skills to benefit from the technology in their daily business.
AI can write poems and draft social media posts that are hardly recognizable as the output of a machine. It is also continuously improving how realistic it can generate pictures, videos and voices. This poses new challenges to society with regards to the authenticity of information.
