European AI front and center at Horasis Asia Meeting

- December 3, 2023

AI continues to be in the news in Europe, with this week experts raising concerns that the EU AI Act is under further threat from lobbyists.

A group of individuals signed an open letter calling on European governments to regulate AI, as opposed to companies themselves doing this. The EU is looking to finalize its landmark bill by December 6th.

Additionally, in communication addressed to French president Emmanuel Macron, Italy’s prime minister Giorgia Meloni and Germany’s chancellor Olaf Scholz, the European NGO Atomium said regulation was under threat due to “pushback” from these governments who are in favour of regulation by the AI companies.

While this was occurring, a group of European technologists attending Horasis Asia Meeting in Vietnam set out to answer how other parts of the world, Vietnam in particular, can best leverage this technology to further the region’s economic success.

The founders of of J3D.AI, a company that helps large organizations leverage AI to solve complex decisions, applied their learnings to a group of about 75 attendees at the meeting. The executives began by asking how Vietnam can leverage these different aspects to achieve economic success.  

The company’s founders are based in Germany, Switzerland and Estonia. 

Said Yip Thy Diep Ta, CEO, J3D.AI, “We will guide participants through a very specific way to share their knowledge; a very fast and efficient way.”

AI comes into play, because the organizers record the discussions from the panelists and use large language models (LLMs) to help summarize the group discussion and identify the most important conclusions which will be presented to the conference attendees by the group. 

“The AI helps us to distill the essence worked out together with the participants,” said Yip Thy. 

According to the enterprise’s founder, the core offering of J3D.AI is to help people exchange knowledge very fast, to interconnect knowledge and then to co-create actions.
