Andy Hood talks about future technologies, and how our little understanding of consciousness does not allow us to replicate human consciousness in AI. Yet. However, the future in which machines are the main source of change is already upon us and in various fields, AI helps provoke massive new discoveries, for the benefit of mankind. Initiatives around the world aim to develop AI with a morality, as it is our own responsibility to make sure that the world created by machines is the best for all involved. Andy Hood is Head of Emerging Technologies at AKQA. He founded and leads the Creative Research & Development team, which specializes in rapid design and development of new digital products and services for clients, and in demonstrating how new technologies can be applied to solve business and consumer problems.
