According to popular speaker Gerd Leonhard, there are still many misunderstandings about Artificial Intelligence. In many cases, the current possibilities are greatly overestimated, sometimes in combination with black scenarios for the future of humanity. In practice, AI is certainly a very useful tool, but still no more than that. We spoke with him at the Axians IT’s Yours event about his vision on “Artificial Intelligence and the future of humanity”. Bottom line from Leonhard: at the moment Artificial Intelligence is actually mainly Intelligent Assistance.
