Live From Davos 2023: Risks and Rewards of AI | Jan 19 2023 8 am ET | 2 pm CEST | Global Stage | GZERO and Microsoft

Join us live from Davos on Jan 19

LIVE from Davos: Is this year a “tipping point” for AI as Eurasia Group's “Top Risks” report describes? Live on Thurs 1/19 at 8 am ET/ 2 pm CET, our expert panel discusses the future of artificial intelligence and the benefits and risks it presents.

Ian Bremmer: the risk of AI and empowered rogue actors

For years, the conversation at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, has mostly put artificial intelligence on the back burner. Not anymore. We're now in a "transformative" moment for AI in terms of how the tech can disrupt the world in both good and bad ways, Eurasia Group President Ian Bremmer says in a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

Artificial intelligence and the importance of civics

What's more important to fight AI-enabled disinformation: policies or social norms? Eileen Donahoe, executive director of Stanford University's Global Digital Policy Incubator, believes we haven't done enough on the cultural level and in terms of civic education. But, should governments ban AI? She's on the fence when asked during a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

The transformative potential of artificial intelligence

Microsoft reportedly plans to invest $10 billion investment in OpenAI, the artificial intelligence company famous for creating the ChatGPT bot. Why is the software giant doing this despite the threat that AI poses to democracy? Azeem Azhar, the founder of the Exponential View newsletter, puts the question to Microsoft President Brad Smith during a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

How democracies nurture the growth of artificial intelligence

China wants order to beat the US in the race to dominate artificial intelligence. But open-ended research? No way — and that's a problem for Beijing. "If you are in a society where there are certain things that you can't ask, you don't know what you can't ask, and the penalty for asking those things you don't know that you can't ask is very high ... it will start to limit the capabilities of researchers to explore," Azeem Azhar, founder of the Exponential View newsletter, says in a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

AI at the tipping point: danger to information, promise for creativity

Artificial intelligence is on everyone's mind these days. The potential for AI to mess up democracy is scary, but the truth is that it can also make the world a better place. So, are bots good or bad for us? We asked a few experts to weigh in during the Global Stage livestream conversation "Risks and Rewards of AI," hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft at this year's World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
