The fourth week of November was not a common one: in fact, the “Digital Communication Week” took place. This year’s edition was related to Artificial Intelligence. On Tuesday, Javier Anguiano – Industry and Economic Manager of Google in Spain – gave a lecture on that issue, while on Wednesday was the turn of Ramón López de Mántaras – director of Artificial Intelligence of the “Centro Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas

Javier Anguiano

Anguiano said that “almost the 90% of companies are not prepared to work with big data and that there is a big preoccupation for the future in the short term”. He divided into waves AI’s most recent past and its probable future. The first wave is its appearence; the second one is its development. The latter wave maintains the idea that the machine will think on its own. Moreover, Anguiano showed kind of variables that are not directly correlated tend to the correlation, such as the demand of flats and mortgages, or micro-loans and the rents of flats. He also made reference about Google data on how the searches about Catalonia’s situation increased during the last weeks.

Javier Anguiano explained that “the information that can be accessed with the AI’s language is very useful for companies and for their operation”. The business idea is using information from channels that the enterprises do not control but that are related to the aims of developing their most appropriate strategy. In fact, AI can find among thousands of data the most accurate solutions.

Anguiano approached us to the current world of Google Spain. He talked about what are they working on; what are their objectives and some curiosities more. In addition, it’s curios that Google rent data storage machines to companies that pay for it.

López de Mántaras

The second conference – hold by López de Mántaras – was deeply focused on the capabilities and needs of AI nowadays. Solving problems requires software capable of perceiving, reasoning and communicating them. He revealed that right now there are only ANIs – artificial narrow intelligence – that  do better than any human one thing, but only that one thing. They are not multitasking. He provided the example of an AI capable of winning against anyone in a game called “Go” or in chess. AGI, in this case, aims to be the more similar to human intelligence.

López de Mántaras also spoke about driver-less cars. They will bring a huge revolution to our lives. Autonomous cars will have cameras, sensors and the ability to drive in a totally secure way.

About this change related to AI, he provided examples of important personalities – such as Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk, Stuart Russel – who are scared of the possibility that Artificial Intelligence can be smarter than humans. He explained that in this fourth industrial revolution many jobs will be outdated, although there are people who think that it will create new ones.
