The Technical sector comprises businesses that develop, create or sell goods and services in electronics, software, computers, artificial intelligence, and other industries related to technology. It overlaps with the Engineering and Computers and Digital sectors. It is a key industry that keeps nations at the forefront of economic and technological development and can have a dramatic impact on our lives. ChatGPT and other AI programmes are increasingly making their way into our lives and are able to support the economy in ways we still do not completely understand. In this project, created with Data Science Talent, you will be looking at benefits and dangers of the development of AI, coming up with ideas for safeguards to protect society and designing an app that uses AI technology.
