Technology Labs Podcast – A positive future with generative AI


A bright future lies ahead of us with current AI developments. In this episode we discuss what’s happening with AI in Silicon Valley with Andreas Sjostrom (Leading the applied innovation lab in San Francisco for Capgemini). Generative AI as well as large language models (think ChatGPT) pain a bright future for us. Sceptics would say that ethics shoot all AI developments in the foot but Andreas holds a techno positive attitude and tells us all about possibilities for more inclusion using AI.

We discuss the release of Apple’s Vision Pro and the marketing absence of the AI abbreviation during its release. The possibilities for the vision pro are endless. Will it be the next generation computer? The end of PC’s and laptops as we know it? Food for discussion.

The use of generative AI is a great development and an awesome companion for us. It is developing at an incredible pace. Just keep up and enjoy the ride.
