Enhancing software with AI
Daniel Akenine, National Technology Officer at Microsoft Sweden
In this episode of AI-podden, we are happy to host Daniel Akenine, National Technology Officer at Microsoft Sweden.
Daniel tells us about some of the recent AI updates to Microsoft products, and how the recent developments of OpenAI’s ChatGPT will be used. The new solution that Microsoft will roll out is a tool that will take meeting notes and summarize them, based on a meeting recording for instance. Another tool will help sales to handle the flow of the sales process to boost the customer relationships.
Daniel and Ather further discuss the challenge that the EU is lagging behind when it comes to AI. As of today, the US and China are leading the field by far, and substantially larger investments are needed in order to catch up.
We discuss Sweden in particular, and how come we are not in the AI game, given the leadership in technology Sweden had in the 80’s and 90’s in digital adaptation when it comes to personal computers, the internet, and telecommunication. Daniel points out that we have the perception of being world leaders when it comes to Digitalization. However, these are old merits, and we are in fact lagging behind when it comes to digitalization, and therefore the lag in AI development is not that surprising from that perspective.
