Helvia.ai’s CEO, Stavros Vassos, participated at the event "The Digital Era, Artificial Intelligence and Techno-Ethics", hosted by the Association of Industries of Thessaly & Central Greece (AITCG), on 23 February 2024.

The aim of the event was to present experiences and perspectives on how technology is shaping our world and the challenges and opportunities it brings along. Recognizing the importance of digital transformation for businesses, the economy, and society, the AITCG has set up a special working group within the framework of the "Act & Grow 25" program. This group focuses on addressing digital transformation issues and aims to identify the needs, priorities, and concerns of the Association's member companies regarding their digital transformation.  

The event featured distinguished speakers, including the Minister of Digital Governance Mr. Dimitri Papastergiou, who shared their expertise and valuable experiences on topics related to the digital age, artificial intelligence, and techno-ethics. Stavros Vassos was among the speakers who discussed various aspects of digital transformation and AI.  

Dr Vassos highlighted the recent waves of digital transformation, comparing the emergence of ChatGTP with the earlier impact the pandemic had in the quick adoption of digital tools. He also acknowledged the desire of businesses to integrate new technologies, such as AI but noted challenges such as the need for infrastructure and the time-consuming process of building systems. Dr Vassos also discussed the evolution of AI from basic systems to sophisticated ones, capable of solving a variety of problems in different domains, at a much faster pace, almost in a zero-setup manner.

Additionally, Dr Vassos shared helvia.ai's experience, covering areas such as automating conversations, improving the customer and employee experience, and end-user engagement. He also noted the increasing acceptance and adoption of digital technologies by organizations, highlighting the trend towards closer engagement and continuous evolution in the digital area.  

In summary, the event provided a platform for experts to share their experiences and insights on how technology is shaping our world. The discussions on digital transformation, AI, and techno-ethics highlighted the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for businesses, society, and individuals. As we continue to navigate the digital age, it is crucial to keep abreast of these developments and harness the power of technology to drive growth and progress.
