Self-driving cars, facial recognition, scanning tissue for cancer cells, voice assistants and chat GPT. AI is everywhere. And there is a growing desire to use it across all sectors.

The possibilities are endless. Both in a positive and negative way. AI can contribute to innovation and efficiency in various sectors, perform complex tasks and process large amounts of data. On the other hand, there are concerns about privacy, possible discrimination by algorithms, the development of independent weapons and the disappearance of jobs.
