In connection with Katalysen’s cooperation with IPsoft and my capacity as senior advisor, I had the opportunity to spend three days at the Gartner Symposium in Barcelona.
IPsoft is regarded as the leading Artificial Intelligence company specialised on digital employees. IPsoft’s cognitive agent Amelia was the star of the symposium.
Many visitors came to the IPsoft presentations, where the cognitive abilities of Amelia were showcased and her ability to act like a human employee were demonstrated. Augmented intelligence, by software such as Amelia, will, without doubt, increase the productivity of the economy and lead therefore to a massive transformation. In my opinion, it is crucial for national economies to embrace that change, to create a legal and regulatory framework that will promote augmented intelligence.
In general, I would say, that the focus of this symposium was mostly on Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Internet of Things and Digital Twins. Of course, there were also a lot of companies showing the more traditional software solutions.
