Could you tell us more about the AI innovations you are bringing to the show?
We are showcasing our AI model for weather and renewable power. The weather prediction system has not seen a significant technology advance over the last few decades. Since 2022, insitutes like Nvidia, Deepmind, Huaweicloud (and of course us!) start to explore end-to-end data driven AI model for weather predictions and reached superior performance to best traditional models. This brings us new opportunity to predict renewable power generations much better and would foster the integration of wind&solar power into the grid.
How do you envision generative AI shaping the global economic landscape, and what repercussions might it have on individual regional markets?
I’m one of the technology optimistic people and believe that AI can bring many new applications such as in filmmaking, personal assistant, working efficiency, code development etc.
Apart from that, what I want to emphasize is that with the assistance of AI, humans can discover new technologies in the frontier of science, such as biology, space science, nuclear fusion or even breakthroughs in physics and mathematics. I think this is much more important to human civilization and impact to global economic landscape or regional market is beyond imagination.
As we look towards a sustainable future, what pivotal role do you see AI startups assuming across different global regions?
For us, AI weather models and more accurately predicting the weather and climate is not only directly analyzing climate change and renewable energy problem, but also tackling the chaotic weather system directly, which is a global challenge. We are very proud of our work and excited about potential impact to sustainability.
How can emerging AI solutions bolster the potential of new startups, and could this pave the way for the emergence of future industry giants or "unicorns"?
Yes, I have complete faith in that. From a more general perspective, what emerging AI solutions is intrinsically letting computers do the work for humans, so that humans can do something more important. People in the industry saying this is another industrial revolution is exactly the point (if you replace “letting computers do the work for humans” to “letting machines do the work for humans”). Remember how the world has changed and how big conglomerates in 20th century emerged since that?
As AI startups continue to innovate, what transformative effects are you observing in the realm of cybersecurity? Are there potential pitfalls in this rapidly advancing AI-centric landscape?
Cybersecurity is not my field of expertise, and I don’t feel confident giving opinions in that.
As AI startups strive for mass adoption of their solutions, what ethical concerns do you foresee as being most pressing?
Of course, privacy is always an issue of paramount importance. No one wants to see their work being training data in someone’s AI without permission. Another potential pitfall would be accountability, as has been seen in autonomous driving industry for a long time. Who should be held accountable if AI makes a mistake, for instance, if an AI doctor mistakenly gives wrong advice and causes pain or even death.
