All year long, the members of ICTluxembourg, in partnership with Digital Luxembourg, will share their expertise on Artificial Intelligence and its impact on today’s and tomorrow’s digital and hyper connected society. Through the regular publication of white papers based on existing case studies, the members of ICTluxembourg aim at generating interest of local and international players, at stimulating the emulation of good practices but also at raising awareness on the opportunities of this game-changing technology at the global and Luxembourg levels.
As key enabler in the ongoing process of digital transformation, Artificial Intelligence is currently at the heart of numerous innovations. Obviously, all sectors of the economy will be impacted by the AI revolution. American research and advisory firm Gartner confirms that Artificial Intelligence is, at this stage of its development, dedicated to support people by enhancing their competences and skills rather than replacing them. AI will create 2.3 million jobs in 2020, while eliminating 1.8 million. It is also forecasted that, in 2018, Artificial Intelligence will lead to more than 160 billion EUR in new revenue.
The members of ICTluxembourg intend to share their knowledge and vision, to discuss the latest trends with the aim to show how AI will disrupt – and completely transform – their sector. In the white papers the ICTluxembourg members will try to give answers to many questions: « What are the main opportunities brought by the advent of AI? What does it mean for employees? How can new products, services and even business models be created through its use? «
Members from ABBL, ALFI, APSI, FTL, CCEL, FDI, FedilICT and OPAL will share their views and vision on the impact of Artificial Intelligence in their respective field of expertise. ICTluxembourg issued a « call for papers », allowing local experts to take an active part in their mission of stimulating every single player in the dynamic and innovative Luxembourg ICT-ecosystem. Located at the very heart of Europe, Luxembourg has proven its expertise in the Digital sector and has become a front runner when it comes to design high quality IT-infrastructures, provide secure cloud services and cyber-security solutions. Supported by the many initiatives of the government’s Digital Luxembourg framework, the country is a recognized startup nation looking at an even brighter digital future.
Si certains pays se sont déjà lancés, dont la France qui a affirmé vouloir investir 1,5 milliard d’euros dans la promotion de l’IA, toutes ces propositions ne seront pas concrétisées avant la fin de l’année, lorsque la Commission présentera son plan sur l’IA impliquant tous les États membres. Celui-ci évoquera en partie la transparence des algorithmes et la responsabilité et l’équité.
