81. From APIs to natural language: The democratization of AI - with Henk Boelman

In this episode, we talk with Henk Boelman, a senior cloud advocate at Microsoft. We discuss recent advances in artificial intelligence. Henk explains how models like GPT have made AI more accessible through natural language interfaces. We delve into the rapid progression of the field and predict capabilities in multi-modal input and conversation. We discuss whether dedicated services will evolve independently or be replaced by generalized models. Testing and monitoring deployed AI is crucial, and we explore the need for more professionals in this area. Finally, we raise ethical issues surrounding the understanding of AI decisions.
