Horizon 2121: The AI-Revolution Has Just Begun: A Case Study
The technical knowledge grew dramatically in the last decades. However there were temporary doubts concerning the benefits of AI applications. At first, we will take a brief look back. We will see a lot of progress in many fields of AI applications, like speech recognition, big data, the usage of drones etc. Meanwhile, many are commodities. Successes in inexpensive infrastructure technologies like mobile networks, sensor technologies boosted AI, additionally. This will be demonstrated by means of an example from the construction industry. The question will be: What‘s next and where do we go from here? Referring to the EU research program the case study will be picked up to get ideas for a horizon 2121 program. Possible developments and the related benefits as well as unsolved issues will be analysed.
