Back in January I attended President Macron’s visit at AI forum; below are my takeaways
“5 years ago we were not doing AI research.
Now we do AI research.
But the research we do has not changed. We still do the same.
– Antoine Petit, French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics
Research people have been doing AI for decades.
So, why is AI a hot topic now and was not in the 70s?
At the time there was a lack of:
- available sets of data
- computational power
- trained people in (developers to build the application to test AI)
Now we have the data, computational power, and people.
