Last year we saw GenAI upend the entire industry. And now, the explosion of AI’s capabilities has ushered a combination of groundbreaking innovations and daunting challenges. This year has seen the birth of a new breed of AI assistants, further bridging the gap between human and machine, evolving this complex relationship to a new dimension. And as AGI’s potential looms ever closer, so to does the question of whether its benefits outweigh the negatives.

AI advancements continue to propel industries into new realms of efficiency and effectiveness, offering solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues. However, the rapid pace of progress necessitates a renewed focus on addressing safety and ethical concerns. This has united the global community of AI experts to try to reach a consensus on ensuring the safe, responsible, and successful harnessing of AI – and the World Summit AI remains at the forefront of this vital movement.

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.

    HEADLINE PANEL DISCUSSION: Deep fakes, disinformation and disruption: How AI is rocking politics and democracy in a global election year Bernhard Gademann, President, Institut auf dem Rosenberg
    Haniyeh Mahmoudian, Global AI Ethicist, DataRobot

    AI’s influence on the election process is profound, with the potential to wreak chaos in this global election year. Deepfakes and sophisticated bots are on the loose. Pedalling false information and shaping public opinions at a global scale. Severely damaging political integrity. Seeding mistrust amongst the electorate.

    Does the opportunity to enhance the electoral process trump the concerns around election security? This panel reveals what’s in store, how AI can enhance democracy – not undermine it; acting as a catalyst for a more engaged and resilient democratic society.

    As AI systems continue to develop more sophisticated decision-making capabilities more autonomously and adaptively, will they be able to transcend boundaries of technology? 

    This session digs deep into whether it is possible for a robot to operate with free will – and what this means for the relationship and blurring boundaries between human and machine.

    HEADLINER: AGI: The final frontier - Elevating or diminishing humanity?

    How will we ensure that AGI is developed in line with human values and ethics? That it benefits society without causing harm?

    As we shift closer towards realising AGI, we push the boundaries of human knowledge and productivity to an unprecedented scale. And the crucial questions around the risks it poses continue to emerge. 

    In our quest to achieve sentience, we’re presented with further ethical and philosophical challenges – from our understanding of consciousness and the consequences of AI agency, to our notions of self and identity. Together, we’ll explore the journey towards AGI, navigating its development along with the ethical discourse to consider how AGI can work with us to solve global challenges.
