Towards an Artificial Intelligence closer to the human being - Lecture

Artificial Intelligence is a technology on the rise, with the ability to become one of the milestones in the history of our civilization, for its ability to change the way we relate as a society. This has already happened previously with technologies such as electricity or the steam engine, only this time the speed of change and its scale are unprecedented. The potential reach of systems built with AI technology is ubiquitous, and their economic impact is very high.

Some of the most interesting areas of AI have to do with creativity, such as music, architecture, the fine arts and science, paving the way for an area with many challenges that may allow us to better understand how the creative human mind works.

Finally, while AI offers us many opportunities, it also involves certain risks, which we must manage properly. For this reason, the EU has focused on the development of an AI with a strong ethical basis and a human-centered approach. That is, an AI at the service of humanity and the common good, in order to improve human well-being and freedom, maximizing the benefits of technology and anticipating and diminishing its possible risks.
