"AI is not just a technology, it's a philosophical approach"

 Ayesha Khanna, CEO of Addo AI, has a message for everyone: we need to start the journey in the AI "today"

 The idea that artificial intelligence is a separate area reserved for programmers and experts is outdated and should be left out. The approach everyone should take, from now on, is to engage with a technology that will change everyone's life. This was advocated by Ayesha Khanna, CEO of Addo AI and one of the most prominent women in the artificial intelligence sector in Asia, during her keynote at the Vodafone Business Conference - The Way of the Future.

 

"Our tendency is to look at AI as spectators," acknowledged the CEO. The problem, he pointed out, is that "it is very difficult to innovate efficiently without knowing the basics of technologies like AI."

To solve problems that seem intractable, "we need to know a bit about AI to use its resolution potential," said the engineer and co-founder of one of the most influential Asian companies in the industry.

"You need to start the AI journey today," he warned. "When technology is so transformative, we can not look at it like a science fiction movie. If they do not have the confidence to be part of this economy, they will always be spectators. ""You need to start the AI journey today," he warned.

In her presentation, Ayesha Khanna explained how the small country in Singapore, where she is based, decided to face open-sided artificial intelligence but with a constant risk assessment perspective. The country has devised a "safety first" strategy and has taken steps to ensure that this caution does not prevent innovation, which is one of the complaints made by companies in the European Union. "A balance between security and innovation is needed," he said.

 

Ayesha Khanna warned that "all industries are going through the same transformation" and that this is the time to act, regardless of investor pressure. "As a country, Portugal can not do this," he said, referring to this limbo in which there are expressions of intent but investments do not happen. "We have to think big," said Khanna, "and push the frontiers of human knowledge." Because artificial intelligence is unstoppable and its impact transcends technical competence. "AI is not just a technology, it's a philosophical approach to solving problems."
