The launch of ChatGPT in November 2022 symbolized the beginning of AI democratization and marked a significant surge in the widespread use of AI within enterprises. However, the risk of its centralization in the hands of major tech companies looms large, said Dr. Anastassia Lauterbach, managing director, The ExCo Group.

"I'm very fearful of big centralization in AI. If we just put our eggs into the basket of centralization, we might create this monster which might destroy the economy and even probably our civilization," Dr. Lauterbach said. "So it's better to democratize and get AI tools to as many companies and scientists as possible."

To address the challenges related to AI centralization and prevent its exclusivity within the domain of major tech companies, Dr. Lauterbach suggested increasing investments in research and development, specifically focusing on generative AI, large linguistic models, hybrid architectures, and technologies such as Explainable AI.

In this second part of a two-part interview with ISMG, Dr. Lauterbach discussed:

  • The significance of increasing investments in fundamental AI research;
  • The importance of OpenAI models;
  • Issues related to cybersecurity and ethics in AI.

Dr. Lauterbach is a global technology strategist, adviser, investor and entrepreneur. She has served as a director of Dun & Bradstreet since 2013 and held numerous executive roles with several MNCs, including Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile, McKinsey and Qualcomm.
