Artificial Intelligence is now the leading edge of technology, driving unprecedented advancements across sectors. The AI industry is witnessing a skyrocketing demand for professionals from healthcare to finance and education to the environment.
In this interview series, we are talking to successful AI professionals, AI founders, AI CEOs, educators in the field, AI researchers, HR managers in tech companies, and anyone who holds authority in the realm of Artificial Intelligence about the future of AI.
As part of this series, we had the pleasure of interviewing Dr Mark Connor, an Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems at the UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business (UCD Quinn School). Mark’s research interests centre on the applications of analytics in sports and business, the use of machine learning and AI to understand complex biological systems, and the development of intelligent learning and control systems to enhance human health, well-being, and performance.
"Furthermore, the proliferation of social media personalities with limited knowledge or expertise in AI is a troubling development. While AI’s popularity grows, misinformation and misguided opinions may gain prominence due to the influence of these individuals."
