Artificial Intelligence: Where do we go from here?

Recent advances in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are revolutionizing our economy and our society.

AI-based systems are finding numerous applications in marketing, sales, healthcare, finances, education, transportation, logistics, design, and even in scientific research. In the near future, AI-based systems may replace a significant fraction of human workers in many jobs and functions.

Machine Learning, a technology that is at the core of recent AI developments, enables computers to learn from experience and opens the way to even more radical changes in the way we interact with machines.

Deep learning is enabling us to address new problems in computer vision and human interaction, with many applications in analytics and automation. Newly developed algorithms and architectures have greatly extended the reach of deep learning techniques and made this technology directly applicable to many businesses. Recent results obtained with transformer-based large language models, convolutional neural networks, deep reinforcement learning, and reverse diffusion have brought this topic to the center of public attention and will have, no doubt, many practical, social, and philosophical impacts in the near future.

In the future, AI research may even open the door to Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), enabling us to create digital minds, systems as intelligent, powerful, and conscious as humans. These digital minds would exhibit intelligent behavior, either by direct emulation of brain processes or by synthetic, approach. If they come into existence, what will be the social, legal, and ethical implications?
