The Hype Behind “AI” 🗓 🗺

Is “Artificial Intelligence” really data “Augmented Intelligence”?

These days – we all collaborate and share massive amounts of data…because that growth was enabled by a massive surge of computing, leading to enable many new applications, once thought of unlikely/impossible or too far away . One of these is the sudden emergence of so called “AI” applications, which was preceded by “Big Data”. In reality, the term “Artificial Intelligence “ is a misnomer or inaccurate representation of what is happening. As such the public needs to know what is the current excitement all about and what it really entails.

This talk will focus on the history, growth, enablement and applications of this new arena and make an attempt to paint perhaps a proper picture of what to expect. Also it will touch upon many other aspects of “AI” and ways to cautiously approach/consider them.
