We are on the verge of a brand new revolution, man. It’s all about artificial Intelligence (AI). Everybody’s talking about it. It’s the new trend, and it’s making big waves in different sectors. There’s a lot of excitement and optimism out there, but also a whole of fear and uncertainty. You know, it’s risky, but jumping on board the AI train early can give you a strategic advantage.
Now, we’ve got AI climate change applications taking center stage at COP28, part of Green Digital Action. It’s a collaboration backed by the International Telecommunication Union, and others, including Azerbaijan. This thing is shedding light on how digital technologies can help us build a more sustainable future, and how we can work together to optimize resource efficiency and slow down the increase of e-waste. One of the highlights of Green Digital Action at COP28 is the “Crowdsourcing AI Solutions for Climate Change” event, and it’s got folks fired up, man. It’s taking place alongside some groundbreaking sessions that are bringing fresh announcements for climate action from the ICT industry.
But how did it all start, you ask? Let’s talk early AI applications. When we think AI, a lot of folks think ChatGPT. OpenAI, founded in 2015, has had its part to play, but the history goes way back, man. We’ve gotta go back to the mid-20th century when the British logician and computer pioneer Alan Mathison Turing was doing some groundbreaking work in the field of artificial intelligence. Fast forward to the 1980s and we’ve got this new AI called nouvelle AI, and it’s changing the game, man. It’s all about human-level performance. It’s wild how far we’ve come, dude.
The COVID-19 epidemic really helped AI take off, you know? We’ve seen a massive increase in technology adoption, big growth in data-driven analytics, and a whole lot of work that forced professional services organizations to shake things up. And now, AI has gone from a distant idea to a super useful partner. According to Deloitte, governments around the world are looking to jump on the AI bandwagon, and Azerbaijan is making its moves too.
Now, over in Azerbaijan, they’re just getting started with their AI government solutions. The government’s teaming up with the pros to make some serious change. It’s all about employing AI in sports, agriculture, facial recognition, you name it. They’re even creating an Azerbaijani language corpus and doing research in all kinds of cool directions. There’s a lot of collaboration going on, and they’re tapping into that world experience, dude.
And as the AI industry sets its standards, the Azerbaijani government can really help pave the way, you know? Government’s got a lot of buying power, and it can drive private-sector acceptance of AI adoption rules. This is how we can get the ball rolling outside of public-sector enterprises, you know?
