Dubai 2018

Brave Conversations Dubai 2018 took place on February 12 2018 as part of the World Government Summit in Dubai, UAE.

The Brave Conversations debate held at WGS 2018 asked the question “Is a machine driven world a better world?
The accelerating rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is accompanied by both optimistic promises and serious warnings. In between the two extreme sides, governments and societies find themselves facing an unprecedented challenge to understand the constantly changing state of AI and technology, and, as Professor Stephen Hawking has recently stated, “Stop for a moment and focus not only on making our AI better and more successful, but also on the benefit of humanity.”
