Pandemic: AI, Disruptive Technologies and Value Creation | Makers Forum


当我们谈论起不远的将来将改变我们生活、工作和娱乐方式的技术时,人工智能无疑仍是一个关键的趋势。人工智能用其颠覆性技术迅速分析和解读全世界的数据,让人类工作被史无前例地取代。并且人工智能正处于“AI产业化”向“产业AI化”升级阶段,成为数字经济新生产力,推动现有生产方式与大数据、区块链等技术加速集成融合。关于人工智能颠覆性技术与价值创造的讨论,法国里昂商学院特别邀请了Mélanie GILBERT教授为我们解读。


When speaking of technologies that will transform the way we live, work and play in the near future, artificial intelligence certainly still remains a key trend.

Artificial intelligence rapidly analyzes and interprets the world's data with disruptive technology, replacing human work like never before.

In addition, artificial intelligence is currently in the stage of upgrading from "industrialization of AI" to "industries integrating AI", with itself becoming a new productive force of the digital economy and accelerating the integration of existing production methods with big data, blockchain and other technologies. emlyon business school has invited Professor Mélanie GILBERT to dig further into the disruptive technologies and value creation of artificial intelligence.
