Season’s greetings 2022 from FCAI

The artificial intelligence and machine learning landscape is thriving, and after nearly three years of the pandemic, we are looking to the new year with big plans. Our field has a growing role to play, not just in contributing excellent science, but in boosting the economy, attracting talent to Europe and Finland and fostering trust and centering people in the development of new and disruptive technology. Generative art, deepfakes and sentience of large language models are in the news daily—our work is consequential and valuable as a counterweight, but we can do more to advocate and be more visible.
