Artificial intelligence is here and it is not the Terminator. Through an enlightening talk, Georgios Grigoriadis describes how technology has evolved in ways that have made Artificial Intelligence our reality in the present moment. Today’s data scientists and AI professionals, he notes, should consider themselves as doctors, as craftsmen of our future. The way AI has entered our lives and is present in every aspect of it raises serious concerns about the rise of inequality. How can humanity be prepared to cope with the impact artificial intelligence will have in our lives? Georgios Grigoriadis is the founder and Managing Director of Baresquare, a digital analytics company based in Greece. Georgios deep-dived into digital analytics while this rather youthful industry was still trying to self-define itself. His mission is to lead a strong, loyal team of analytics experts in a journey to stimulate business, social and individual growth through decisive answers fueled by data and statistics; a journey that goes beyond the limits of human computation, and with respect to the human well-being. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
