Artificial intelligence is in full swing and the world’s artificial intelligence researchers are currently gathering in Stockholm for the year’s largest event in this field, IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence). Hundreds of events take place at this conference, they tackle very interesting and topical issues.
The ever-greater developments in the field of artificial intelligence have sparked conversations of its potential in different sectors (society, business, government, etc.). Such is the impact of this technology that some countries already have a State Minister for Artificial Intelligence, as is the case of the United Arab Emirates with Omar Al Olama at the helm. It is not yet common, but it reflects the importance of this technology.
