Is AI the new frontier of creativity and business
We explore analytical trajectory of AI with industry leaders Stephen Foxworthy, Fiona Triaca, and Dr. Joseph Badr. Unpack the complexities, potential, and ethical considerations of AI’s integration into various sectors.
Pause Fest online presents a carefully curated first of seven sessions with an expert panel of judges, on topic specific talks. ‘Discover your Superpowers with Ai’ is panelled with industry experts Stephen Foxworthy from Accenture Song, Fiona Triaca from Naked Ambition and Joseph Badr from Dsmile.
In an era where artificial intelligence (AI) is not merely a technological advancement but a pivotal force reshaping industries, a confluence of three distinguished minds provided profound insights. Here are the takeaways from the session and the YouTube video you can watch is embedded below.
Stephen Foxworthy, with his seasoned expertise, initiated the discourse by addressing the intricate dynamics of trust in AI. “The accelerated evolution of AI presents a dual-faceted scenario,” he articulated. “Its potential is vast, yet it simultaneously poses challenges in fostering trust, especially within longstanding institutions resistant to rapid change.”

Fiona Triaca, with her keen acumen on innovation, provided a nuanced perspective on AI as an enabler of creativity. “There are two kinds of conversations, what can designers do for AI and what can AI do for designers,” she posited. “Think of AI in the context of the scissors, one blade being cognition and one blade being context, quoting Herbert Simon, renowned designer and an AI researcher from the 60s.”

Dr. Joseph Badr, bringing forth his specialised knowledge from the medical realm, delved into AI’s role in dentistry. “Envision an ecosystem where AI augments diagnostic precision and optimises patient care,” he proposed. “However, while AI can offer data-driven insights, the subtleties of medical intuition and experiential knowledge remain irreplaceable.”

The synthetic versus real debate was underlying the discussion. Stephen, reflecting deeply, commented, “In our digital epoch, the pursuit of authenticity gains paramount significance. Synthetic experiences, facilitated by AI, offer unparalleled efficiency, but there remains an intrinsic human yearning for genuine interactions.”
Fiona added, “The democratisation of AI tools is a monumental shift, empowering individuals like never before. Yet, this empowerment comes with the onus of responsibility.” Joseph said, “There are a number of issues we face in dental care, and if you get something that’s going to help in diagnosing better and improve the patient experience, then that’s basically what we’re after.”
The discourse underscored a salient theme: while AI is poised to revolutionise all industries, the sanctity and significance of human judgement remain central.
