Artificial Intelligence is More than “Just a Technology”

Posted on

I think everyone agrees that artificial intelligence is a “game-changing technology”.

For sure, it is still in the early stages of its development and current expectations are often set too high. Singularity — the point where artificial super-intelligence surpasses human intelligence — is still “relatively” far away.

Yet, AI is already changing many fields of life and this change is only set to continue. This became very clear when I visited Japan again last week:

  • The more frequent appearance of “Pepper”, the humanoid robot from Softbank Robotics, on the streets of Tokyo.
  • Last week’s discussions with my Japanese friends and colleagues about artificial super-intelligence and artificial consciousness.
  • The news about Softbank’s founder Masayoshi Son leading the way in investments in AI.
