Online SWForum Blog: Unleashing the Power of Generative AI: A game-Changer for Our Lives

On 7 February 2023, SWForum.eu kicked off the Fellowship Programme, which has engaged six experts from a variety of backgrounds and institutions, who will be contributing insights and perspectives on critical areas in software technology today, such as open source and artificial intelligence.

We are pleased to share the first blog post coming from one of the Fellowship members, Joao Pita Costa – Innovation Manager and Senior Researcher at the International Research Centre on Artificial Intelligence under the auspices of UNESCO (IRCAI), and lecturer on AI-related topics at the Barcelona Business School (ENEB) – entitled "Unleashing the Power of Generative AI: A Game-Changer for Our Lives".

The article discusses the breakthroughs in generative AI, particularly in the field of computer vision, including the creation of photo-realistic portraits of humans using deep learning methods and text-to-image functionality. The article also highlights the invaluable impact of generative AI in areas like cancer research, where it can be used to distinguish cancerous from healthy tissue and perform cell segmentation for early blood cancer diagnosis. The author also introduces ChatGPT, an AI language model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text in response to various inputs. The article further discusses the importance of understanding and communicating how AI works and the potential impact of AI on the software industry.
