The Future of AI in the Industrial and Physical World

Falling Walls Circle Tables are lending the spotlight to world-leading scientists, science strategists and policy-makers from academia, business and politics discuss how we can apply science, research and innovation to get the world moving again.

As technology advances, artificial intelligence begins to enter every aspect of our lives. In this Falling Walls Circle Table, the panel discusses how we can enhance the future of AI in the physical world, while protecting ourselves from the risks it poses.

Machine learning allows artificial intelligence to operate with minimal programming, but this learning comes with limitations. Physical situations frequently require that artificial intelligence can adapt as situations shift, and develop a complex understanding of the real world. For an efficient future of AI, we need to develop tools that can make inferences about cause, not just correlation. What’s more, we need to be able to peer inside, to understand why certain decisions are made.

Even today, artificial intelligence is an incredibly varied tool with applications everywhere. But the technology itself is neutral. It can be equally well applied for both positive and negative goals – something that governments, companies and even the general public must be mindful of.
