Large event on Artificial Intelligence - Short report
The recent months were busy for the Swiss Chapter of ASIS International. Not only did its Annual General Meeting take place on 15 November (see this news), but during the same afternoon a large event with more than 200 people in attendance was organised by your Chapter (as main sponsor) and several other associations to listen to views from specialists and debates on Artificial Intelligence (photographs available at https://www.fer-ge.ch/web/fer-ge/conference-15-novembre-2018).
This was brilliantly illustrated by the keynote speaker, virtuoso violinist Fabrizio von Arx, who compared his playing of a Johann Sebastian Bach composition with the musical work "Genesis" created by AIVA, the Artificial Intelligence Music Composer. While musically correct, this work did not yet provide the subtlety, depth and details of its 250 years old counterpart. It will be interesting to witness how fast and well such systems will evolve!
