And suddenly it&s Christmas again! Which also automatically means that a new year is about to dawn. 2022 says goodbye and hardly anyone will mourn it. Tough it can&t help that in the course of its months the existing world order has been overturned with a war of aggression on our doorstep.
In our own field, too, the year 2022 will go down in the history books as the year in which artificial intelligences, after a long stay in the nursery, raced through their teenage phase and acquired abilities that we would not have expected so quickly. Text AIs almost succeed in simulating consciousness, while image-generating AIs produce the first useful results. By the way, some of them are quite funny, as you can see in our Christmas graphic.
A revolution has begun, the consequences and effects of which are still unclear. Only one thing is certain: we are living in exciting times.
All the more emphatically, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers and the community peaceful and relaxing holidays. A big thank you goes to all of you who support us with words and deeds!
All the best for 2023
