O futuro mais provável é o da cibernética, da simbiose entre humanos e máquinas

O evento é organizado pela Singularity Digital Enterprise e acontece no dia 12 de outubro, na sede da EDP em Lisboa, sob o tema “A Glimpse into the Future”, em redor da Inteligência Artificial. O objetivo é apresentar casos reais já implementados em Portugal com impacto provado para o negócio das organizações.

Daniel Rasmus, futurista, que se destacou como assessor de Bill Gates na definição e desenvolvimento de algumas das mais bem-sucedidas estratégias de mercado para novos produtos e serviços da empresa norte-americana, é um dos keynote speakers convidados.

Will technologies such as AI and machine learning help to accentuate or soften digital exclusion?

Rasmus: It depends on what we do with these technologies. One of the value propositions of artificial intelligence is solving problems that we find very difficult. The application of the technology may result in better economic conditions, but will we let that be so? It will be all about will and interests. Just see what happens now: in the Western world we have the knowledge and means that allow us to live better and yet there is still a part of the underdeveloped world because they do not have access to it. We have not really committed ourselves to distributing wealth. It all comes down to how people use technology. One of the messages I left at the event was that we have to define what it means to be good. What is good for some people can be bad for others. It is one of the most important questions to ask. We should not develop technology just to solve a given problem. We have to define what it means to have a good outcome. The KPI of the business can not only be important, but in which technological development benefits society. We have to ask this question more often.
