PATENTS COCKTAIL: a high for artificial intelligence

An extraordinary cocktail and its own soundtrack - developed on the basis of the individual wishes of the guests of our Patent Cocktail - were created this year by an artificial intelligence (AI).

Alpbach Patents Cocktail Competition

At the Patent Cocktail we asked the participants: What will artificial intelligence never be able to do?

Among the correct answers, the two most original ones won.

Most of the participants agreed: "AI can't show emotions like love". The answer that it "cannot feel emotions" also came up frequently. The winners were:

"AI will never be able to show empathy" - the answer could also have come from our juror Prof. Hochreiter and

"AI will never replace me".

Congratulations to both winners. The prizes are two books each on the topic of artificial intelligence.
