61 speakers, alumni and special guests were attracted by the topic Artificial Intelligence to come to Martinsried near Munich, to hear and learn the experience of the experts. Technology, visions and ethical aspects were discussed during day 1, followed by an excellent dinner magically prepared by Chef Jean-Michel Féret. On day 2 we hosted by the Munich Leukemia Lab, and saw four beneficial examples of the use of A.I. in healthcare and biotech businesses.
New forms of Artificial Intelligence have an increasing influence on everybody’s life. Advanced algorithms in machine learning and – over and above – in deep learning allow decision making processes which were considered a sci-fi dream just a decade ago. For many experts, A.I. is considered to be the fastest technological progress ever. These innovative technologies create unimagined opportunities. But they also foster warranted and unjustified anxieties because we do not understand much of the complexities in decision-making processes of the algorithms.
NeoCOLAM 2019 was an eye-opener in many of these issues. How does A.I. work? Where can we imagine benefits from the new technologies? Which disruptive businesses are built on artificial intelligence already today? What are the visions of the experts? What kind of boundaries, rules and guardrails will we need for our own security?

In March 2019 two companion briefings were published by Philip Boucher from the European Parliamentary Research Service which give an excellent insight into the technology and importance of Artificial Intelligence. You don’t need to be AI techie or misguided utopianist to gain a real-life understanding of how AI works and why it matters:
