And finally a special crush for Karin Lakhoune & Hessie Jones, we all need a special crush :)

Current (and near-term) strong trends in Tech we have observed:
–The Metaverse was leading last year, and with no doubt in 2024 Large Language Models (LLMs "ChatGPT-like") Transformers-based take center stage!
but also:
Towards a responsible future : AI Ethics, Responsible AI , Climate Emergency, Equity / Diversity / Inclusion
– Cyber Security
– Health Tech / Digital Health
and Quantum Computing

We analyzed on stochastic samples the keywords mentioned at the beginning of the article (the fields of digital transformation) on Internet and Twitter between January 2023 and the end of November 2023. This analysis was done using a home made NLP algorithm written by our team, mainly in Prolog (yes, there are still people who use Prolog ;)). The main structure of the algorithm is a decision tree and so the AI here is “symbolic” because Prolog is a programming language based on mathematical logic. Thus it allows very simple queries to be made in natural “human” language. This choice was made to obtain a high interpretability of the results obtained by the analysis. Here there are also humans in the loop (our team obviously in this case) to establish weights on the decision trees. Biases, as with any algorithm, are certainly present here but we tried to reduce them to a minimum. Concerning X (Twitter) & LinkedIn, we took into account the potential reach and the engagement.

Take care everyone :)
