At the Talent Land Spain 2024 event, artificial intelligence specialist Carlos Santana analyzed the trend of the AI ​​revolution, highlighting how this transformation has been developing over decades. Santana explained that this revolution is not recent, but has its roots in the field of computing for a long time.

The artificial intelligence revolution is also intrinsically linked to the development of machine learning and deep learning. Santana clarified that the goal of machine learning is not simply for machines to perform intelligent tasks, but for them to automatically learn to solve the tasks posed to them without needing to be explicitly programmed for each action.

With the advent of artificial neural networks about a decade ago, the deep learning revolution began to take off. Artificial neural networks are machine learning algorithms that perform very well and have enabled great advances in the field of AI. Since 2012, these technologies have produced impressive headlines, such as autonomous driving and robots performing stunts.

The revolution within the revolution: generative AI

For the past four years, there has been a revolution within the AI ​​revolution with the emergence of generative artificial intelligence, especially in language generation. This technology is advancing rapidly and transforming various areas. Language models such as GPT-4 have shown themselves to be increasingly intelligent and capable.

In this regard, Santana explained that the language model revolution is beginning to redefine everything in order to integrate these tools into our work. It is expected that before the end of the year there will be a new update to the language model, which will mean a significant leap in its capabilities.

The evolution of the audiovisual generation

Since 2014, there has been significant progress in image generation models. This evolution has made it possible to create AI systems capable of generating faces that look real, even if they are fictitious. The most important leap occurred after 2020, with direct control over what the AI ​​generates. A prominent example is DALL-E, a model that allows images to be generated from text.

In 2021, DALL-E offered the ability to write descriptions and obtain images that, although initially lacking in sharpness and detail, in 2022 with DALL-E 2, the quality improved dramatically. This tool was no longer just a toy, but a technology capable of generating images that were beginning to compete with the work of human artists and designers.

Impact and future challenges

The evolution of AI is so fast that when we encounter problems that technology cannot yet solve, the response is usually “we have to wait” because the pace of development is so frenetic. Santana showed how tools such as Midjourney have revolutionized the audiovisual field, allowing images to be generated in seconds, which previously took much longer.

Santana also highlighted the problem of the misuse of AI on the Internet. The ease with which anyone can generate fake content raises serious concerns about ethics and responsibility in the use of this technology.

Towards the future: personalization and efficiency

Looking to the future, Santana talked about the possibility of personalizing AI models not only in image generation, but also in language models such as ChatGPT, which are beginning to incorporate memory to offer a closer and more personalized experience to the user.

Content generation is becoming faster and more efficient. A year ago, image generation models could take 30 seconds to create an image. Today, they can generate 20-30 images in a second. This same interactivity is seen in language models, improving their efficiency and reducing costs.

Fighting hallucinations and transforming industries

AI hallucinations, or incorrect responses, can be combated with the improved speed and accuracy of these models. This transforms entire industries such as marketing and design, making them cheaper and more efficient.

Santana also talked about multimodality, neural networks and useful tools like Runway and Sumo, which are revolutionizing various fields. Four years ago, it was believed that AI was coming to replace human work in mechanical tasks, but in reality, AI learns from data provided by humans, whether images, texts, audios or videos. This trend is also evident in fields like robotics and biomedicine, where AI is allowing a more human approach to technology.

In short, Carlos Santana’s speech at Talent Land Spain 2024 offered a comprehensive overview of how AI is transforming our lives and work. From its beginnings in the field of computing to the latest innovations in generative AI, this technology continues to advance at a dynamic pace, promising a future where collaboration between humans and machines is closer and more efficient.
