Artificial Intelligence: Concepts, challenges, opportunities and Ethics

If the United States dominates the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI), China intends to challenge this supremacy…Algeria needs to pay attention to and respond to this new AI craze because a country that develops and uses AI will shape its future and significantly improve its economic competitiveness, while a country that falls behind risks losing out its competitiveness in key industries, and even its national sovereignty will be threatened.

Of course, we must not lose sight of the fact that AI arouses both enthusiasm and skepticism, albeit in different measures.

In this plenary session, we recall the concept of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning and the importance of Data. We show interest in some key applications in the fields of medicine, telecommunications, intelligent transportation systems, and security.

Ethical issues arise such as surveillance by AI, the role of AI in promoting misinformation and disinformation, the role of AI in politics and international relations, governance of AI, etc.

New technologies are always created in the interest of something good, and AI offers us amazing new capabilities to help people and make the world a better place. But to make the world a better place, we must choose to do so, ethically.

With the concerted effort of many people and organizations, we can hope that AI technology will help us create a better world.
