 AI is here; now what?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has established itself as one of the most impactful technological innovations of our time. Its ability to mimic human intelligence and perform complex tasks has revolutionized numerous industries and transformed the way we work and live.

Until now we had expected AI to replace repetitive, mechanical jobs. However, one of the most amazing aspects of AI is its ability to engage in creative activities. Through generative AI techniques, computer programs can create original content in various artistic forms, such as poetry, music, and visual imagery. This raises fascinating questions about the intersection between human creativity and the ability of machines to generate innovative works. It challenges us to rethink the role of creativity in a world increasingly driven by technology.

Game rules have changed and now we face a new challenge: learning to play as a team with this new player. Integrating AI effectively into our personal and professional lives is key to tapping into its full potential. We must adapt and understand how this new player works, collaborating to improve our skills and achieve our goals more efficiently. By understanding that AI is a powerful tool, we can establish a unique synergy that allows us to take our life and career to a whole new level.

In this conference we will explore how AI works as a tool, how to use it to our advantage to improve our skills and achieve goals. We will address the challenges that this implies seeking a balance with ethical and social values.

The future of the future

To compare a person who lived 5,000 years ago with a contemporary person, one would think the difference would be extreme. The reality is that such a difference will be nothing compared to what artificial intelligence, robotics, and biotechnology will bring in the coming years when compared to people of today. Humanity will experience more changes in the next 50 years than the changes it saw from 5,000 years ago to today.
