The Global Transition to Voice, Acoustics and Imagery Brings with it Far-Reaching, Positive Impacts to Society
Throughout the course of humanity, voice, acoustics and imagery have played central roles in the human experience and evolution. From basic communication to the arts, and their early and rudimentary uses in business, industry and computing - these modalities now stand to transform the machine-human relationship, partnership and interface, otherwise known as Augmented AI.
We are now at a collective tipping point of all the advancements and progress over the past 3-4 decades, from the Internet, to Moore’s Law and computing speed/size of chips, to big data and massive advancements in machine learning and augmented AI (machines+humans partnership) over the past decade. In this issue, we look at the Azafran Thesis through the lens of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Azafran’s investment focus supports at least 6 of the 17 SDGs including: #3 Good Health and Well-Being, #9 Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure, #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities, #12 Responsible Consumption and Production, #13 Climate Action, as well as #15 Life on Land.
