From Artificial Intelligence to Intelligence Amplification
09:00 - 9:30 am
Mieke De Ketelaere
Not a day goes by without thrilling or terrifying media stories about the consequences of our Artificial Intelligence progress. There is good reason to be energized by the potential, but we're being overwhelmed by hype. As an engineer, I'm an enthusiastic realist when it comes this technology. What motivates me is not the technology, but what it can do to help us to solve problems, in this case complex problems. But let's also be pragmatic: Is AI really going to solve all our problems? During the session, I will give you a quick and accessible introduction to buzzwords such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, etc. We will have a short look at some current practical implications of AI on people's lives and livelihoods. And finally, we will check the potential of Intelligence Amplification, a world where information technology will augment human intelligence.

Thomas Van Durme - Orion (ThinkNexT)
AI has been in the spotlight quite significantly over the last two years. Due to this hype, many companies find themselves wondering how to really leverage these new technological capabilities. We will present a number of concrete use cases of how the Orion AI product has been deployed in customer service environments, its benefits but also potential pitfalls. We’ll also have a look at what is currently technologically possible, but maybe not always feasible market-wise. And we’ll conclude with a glimpse on future AI capabilities.

Tim Waegeman - Robovision
Although most people do not yet fully realize how their lives are already being influenced by self learning systems, it is a fact that AI is everywhere. Not necessarily to do harm of course, but rather to serve society. Industries have always used the importance of safety, robustness and production throughput as an argument against the use of self-learning systems. Although there is a huge amount of data available in these industries, their cautiousness causes the industries to adopt the technology slower compared to the consumer market. In this presentation, we will further demystify the use of self-learning systems by some interesting use cases.
