AI advancements have propelled industries into new realms of efficiency and effectiveness, offering solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. On the other hand, the rapid pace of progress has ignited a global debate on ethics, privacy, and public trust, stirring a call for a delicate balance between harnessing AI’s potential and safeguarding human values.

World Summit AI is the epicenter of AI innovation; where the boundaries of technology meet the forefront of business and societal transformation.  Mark your calendars for the 9th and 10th of October 2024, as we return to Amsterdam to create a future where technology and humanity merge to create a more inclusive, equitable world. As we move forward, the choices made today will fundamentally shape the legacy of AI for generations to come, making 2024 a critical year for reflection and decisive action in the world of AI.

Thomas Wolf is co-founder and Chief Science Officer (CSO) of Hugging Face where he has been at the inception of the open-source, educational and research efforts.

Thomas enjoys creating open-source software that makes complex research, models and datasets widely accessible (for instance by creating the Hugging Face Transformers and Datasets libraries). When he’s not building OSS libraries, he can be found pushing for open science in research in AI/ML, trying to lower the gap between academia and industrial labs through projects like the BigScience Workshop on Large Language Models (LLM) which leads to the BLOOM experiments, model and dataset. His current research interests revolve around LLM accessibility and measuring and overcoming present limitations of Large Language Models. He also enjoys writing and filming educational content on AI, ML and NLP, including writing the reference book “Natural Language Processing with Transformers” published at O’Reilly with amazing co-authors, writing (not often enough) in his blog and recording (also not often enough) educational videos like The Future of Natural Language Processing.

Neuroscientist Anil Seth is interested in understanding the biological basis of conscious experience, a topic he considers one of the greatest challenges for 21st century science. His groundbreaking research provides fascinating insight into what this means for storytelling. His 2017 TED talk has been viewed over 5 million times.

Seth is Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex and Codirector of the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science. He seeks to understand the biological basis of consciousness by bringing together research across neuroscience, mathematics, AI, computer science, psychology, philosophy and psychiatry. Key to his work is exploring the relationship between perception and hallucination, and how this applies to the experience of being a “self.” Seth is also Editor in Chief of the academic journal Neuroscience of Consciousness, a Senior Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, and a Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow. He was the 2017 President of the British Science Association (Psychology Section).
