The use of Artificial Intelligence goes beyond just automated tasks – How can we prepare for the fourth industrial revolution when AI meets Creativity and Art?

Although the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not new, a recent report shows that the technology could add an additional £630bn to the UK economy by 2035.

Last month the European Commission called for a €20bn (£14bn) cash investment for artificial intelligence research due to fears that Europe is falling behind the major players, US and China, where most of the leading AI firms are based.

Despite the many benefits of AI, there are still concerns about the lack of regulatory control over how private companies use the technology.

One of the big issues is – Ethics. How far can we actually trust AI and what happens in the situation where it evolves beyond our control.

How do we train the developing artificial technology to take ethics and human values into account?

Young tech entrepreneur Olivia Higgs, co-founder of artificial intelligence company NAVA (formerly known as KOMPAS) – a city exploration app – advises that we should be focusing on the influence of AI on creativity and art, instead of automated tasks.

In this TEDx talk video, Olivia helps us to understand the benefits and limitations of AI, and the role society plays in how we see its influence in the next decade.

She also moves to demystify some of the concerns that the wider public has about the revolutionary technology, and why the public should be included in the ethics of the industry.
