Arrogance, superficiality, competitiveness, greed, pride - this is not a list of deadly sins, but five human traits that will soon be perfectly tested by the massive emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) language models. AI, like any other technology, is not inherently evil or dangerous; it can only become so in human hands.
Over the past two days, representatives of 25 partners of the new AI-MATTERS technology network, which consists of seven nodes and one satellite in eight European countries with a budget of €60 million for five years, met at Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of CTU in Prague (CIIRC CTU). The main objective of the AI-MATTERS network, which held its first general assembly in Prague today, is to support the development of the European manufacturing industry in the introduction of advanced technologies, thereby increasing its innovation capacity and global competitiveness. The Czech node of the AI-MATTERS network is led by CIIRC CTU, which is thus becoming one of the main testing and experimentation sites for industrial applications in the field of artificial intelligence and intelligent robotics.
