ETNO ThinkDigital Interview with Nicolas Demassieux, Senior VP, Orange Labs Research

Artificial Intelligence (AI): a topic that gets people both enthusiastic and reluctant. But what does the concept of AI really mean? What about "strong" or "weak" AI? What does it mean for telecoms customers? What is Europe's role in shaping AI? In order to find pertinent answers, we went to ask to Nicolas Demassieux, Senior VP at Orange Labs Research.

"So there are a lot of fears around AI. And most of the fear is fuelled by Hollywood movies when you depict AI taking over the world because they present what is called “strong AI” - an AI that would be as capable as a human being. Some people are afraid of AI but sometimes it is more likely that you have to be afraid of ourselves" concludes Demassieux.

What about you? What is your view on AI?
