In a world of rapid technological change, artificial intelligence (AI) has become ubiquitous, offering an abundance of opportunities – from enhancing business operations to disrupting entire industries. To introduce this transformative technology and shed light on its potential, we recently held a LinkedIn Live called Level Up #1: AIspiration, featuring our Solwit AI expert Zbyszek Usarek. Be sure to watch the event video, but first, a few words on its highlights.
As before, let’s kick it off with a fundamental question: What exactly is artificial intelligence? Zbyszek presented a concise definition of AI and emphasized that the technology can be applied even in areas that may not seem apparent at first. Today’s artificial intelligence is a system capable of understanding its surroundings, taking actions to maximize its goals, and interpreting and analyzing data to learn and adapt over time. In the age where Artificial Intelligence pops up literally everywhere, it’s crucial to grasp its essence and implications for everyday life. Though, the issue of disparity in global AI regulations itself may seem somewhat mind-boggling. There are no consistent regulations in place today, and even the pan-European AI Act is still in its legislative infancy.
Although they pertain to different concepts, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are often used interchangeably. Zbyszek lucidly unraveled each topic, giving real-life examples to demonstrate how artificial intelligence has become firmly rooted in our world.
The opportunities for business leaders looking to implement AI in their companies are endless. From local solutions to cloud computing, we covered it all. Zbyszek shared insights on how they impacted business processes in companies he has worked for in the past, developing AI-based software.
The event wasn’t just about theory – it also covered real-life applications of AI, particularly those from Google Cloud, including Vertex AI. These solutions tackle real business challenges, as Zbyszek noted.
Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) often pique curiosity due to their potential to create content and understand natural language. A deeper dive was taken into these concepts, exploring their benefits within the broader AI landscape. By outlining how they function and their applications, Zbyszek laid out the innovative realms Generative AI and LLMs open up.
Shifting the focus to entrepreneurs, the event explored how these visionary leaders can harness the power of Generative AI and Large Language Models. This segment empowered entrepreneurs with insights into how these tools can be practically employed to streamline processes, innovate content creation, and transform customer interactions.
To ground the theoretical discussions, a real-world case study was presented—the collaboration between Solwit and Bunge to create an AI-driven quality control system. This system utilizes computer vision to detect manufacturing defects in real-time, significantly improving product quality and reducing costs. This case study about vision-based quality control system in FMCG exemplified the tangible impact AI can have on enhancing efficiency and profitability.
During the Q&A Lightning Round and Closing Remarks, Zbyszek was asked a very insightful question from the audience: How can AI help reduce CO2 emissions? According to Zbyszek, AI’s potential for combating climate change is vast and spans fields such as optimizing electricity grids and tracking biodiversity. He also highlighted considering AI’s carbon footprint, emphasizing the need to address its potential environmental impact.
Looking ahead, Solwit’s commitment to AI knowledge continues with an exciting offline event. On September 14, we are organizing Solwit Level Up: Decoding AI in collaboration with Google Cloud and other partners. Focusing on artificial intelligence applications in business, this event promises to decode the intricacies of AI’s role. Attendees can expect both insightful presentations and valuable networking opportunities.
