Tell us about your first encounter with artificial intelligence (AI)?

I worked with AI in my PhD in 1996.


What is your competence within the field of AI? 

Research and development of algorithms that use machine learning in different shapes and forms.


Why did you develop an interest in AI? 

Both through work and though reading, I love science fiction.


Can you recommend a relevant book or film about AI? 

Many. Start with Neil Stephensons Snowcrash.

Why should we, or should we not, be afraid of AI? 

Not if we learn how to use it responsibly.

Which field, in your opinion, has the most to benefit from AI – and why? 

Health, and all others.


How should the use of AI develop in the future?

In breadth, so that all can use it as a tool; in depth, so that good developers can build new AI solutions with good culture and ethics fit to the place of use.


Why should participants tune in during AI+? 

To learn and be inspired for practical action.

Silvija Seres will host the AI+ virtual conference 2020.
