About talk

Topic: IT

During this session, Ben and Levy from the BootstrapLabs team gave a summary of the key learnings throughout the conference as well as their outlook on AI in the future.

Some of the key takeaways from the session are:

- AI is not a vertical,  it's like we've seen with other technologies like the internet and computers, it's an alpha trend, it will transcend everything and it will shape everything

- The augmentation of humans, having machines do what they do best with AI and having humans do what they do best in a very deliberate and efficient way, actually creates orders of magnitude in scale and quality output.

- We're all responsible for creating the future we want to see in the world, if you see a founder or company that's working on what you want to see in the world, connect with them, because ultimately people are changing the future by making it happen now.
