‘AI for Good’ Invited talk by Prof. Davy Cielen

‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) cannot replace roles but rather create a need for a newer set of skills in the new paradigm. The application of AI in medicine, education, manufacturing, analytics and other areas has proved that AI and its various applications have the potential to bring out positive change in society. AI will never be able to replace jobs that require empathy, creativity, intuition, and compassion. These are human traits that machines are incapable of replicating,’ thus said Prof. Davy Cielen, a co-founder of the Maiton Consulting Group, London. SDMIMD organized the invited talk on February 9, 2023.
The speaker presented various tools such as Dalle2, MID Journey, Chat GPT, and Digital Humans that make AI more accessible to the public. Further, Prof. Cielen explained the three stages of AI - Narrow AI, General AI, and Super AI - and highlighted that transfer learning requires much less cost than before.
The talk, followed by the Q&A, provided valuable insights into the current state of AI and its potential for the future.
