AI—many benefits for the sake of our privacy?

23.12.2021Comments are closed.

On Wednesday, 15 December 2021, ConnectAI Talk organised a conversation titled “Is AI in mobility all hype?” on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI). The discussion was moderated by Prof. Carsten Bartsch, PhD, an entrepreneur, consultant, and academic, always looking for the next major technological disruption. Guests Luka Bradeško, CEO at Solvesall, AI Researcher at the Jožef Stefan Institute, and former Senior Software Engineer at Bloomberg LP; Aleš Lampret, Logistics Manager at Kuehne + Nagel; and Robert Štaba, initiator, founder and president of Zavod Varna pot (Safe Journey Institute) gave interesting views on AI and their experience with it.

We already use some parts of AI as maps which predict ETA and show traffic jams but the possibilities are wide open to add safety areas or track dangerous drivers and potential drunk drivers as well. AI is already used in logistics, distribution, scheduling, etc. and the guests are also seeing AI being included in strategic business planning more often in the future. For example, the goal of zero deaths on the roads looked like a crazy unachievable idea 25 years ago but now with AI, it is not only possible but also believable. What does this mean for the future? The prediction that many jobs will become obsolete is honestly already coming true. A broad variety of influence on business goes from using machines instead of people, therefore achieving higher productivity, reducing the need for heating in the warehouses, predicting fluctuations of products, etc.

The biggest issue related to AI is private data, since a lot of data is needed for AI to be efficient. The question is whether we want to have the benefits of privacy. But again, do we have more data available than AI developers are using? Guests pointed out that not all available data is reliable and usable.
