"We need an AI development process that allows different players to come together," Tim Llewellynn is certain. To this end, he founded the open platform Bonseyes, which aims to transform AI development from a cloud-centric model dominated by large internet companies to an edge-device-based model.
Compared to AI research activities in the US and China, Europe has a very strong background in machine learning and neural network development, but it is very distributed, he says. "One of the advantages in scaling US and Chinese companies is that they can focus on large monolithic systems and bring all the resources together in one environment," Llewellynn says. For Europe, he says, it could be a great opportunity to build on the breadth of knowledge in machine learning and neural networks and bring it together to take a leading role in the development of artificial intelligence.
Tim Llewellynn will be speaking at the AI conference Discovery on Steroids: How AI will Speed up Innovation on 5 July 2022 at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute.
