Enabling human-centric AI

Augmented creativity and automation with Microsoft Azure

This event has been postponed until 2023 

Companies are using artificial intelligence to deliver better customer experience, improve productivity, and keep up with the competition. Beyond the popular use of replacing tedious and repetitive tasks with automation, there are also more creative and strategic opportunities to explore when solving business problems and improving product innovation.
Artificial intelligence suffers from its hype in that it’s built on problematic assumptions about what AI can and cannot do. Our previous work proves that it is possible to design a 21st century human-centric AI-based system which outperforms machine-centric approaches, having far less computing resources and data at hand.
