Now or Never for AI Policy?
If the rise of the internet taught us anything three decades ago, it is that policy decisions made in the early days of a new technology’s development and commercialization can have far-reaching consequences that will long outlast any individual political career. With AI now advancing rapidly and being deployed across many sectors of the economy, policymakers - from global supranational bodies on down - have an urgent and weighty challenge in front of them.

What they are saying

  1. Many people here at the bank agree that this was the most professional looking, well moderated, and entertaining event we have supported or participated in... The speakers were top-level and highly knowledgable throughout, and the whole design was very slick.
