AI doesn’t understand race – or history

Google has been making moves to compete with OpenAI’s popular services ChatGPT and DALL-E. It recently rebranded its chatbot Bard as Gemini and launched an image-generation tool, too. But three weeks later, Google has temporarily paused public access to the text-to-image tool—and publicly apologized—because, uh, it had some diversity problems.

The Munich Security Conference (MSC) is all about providing a space to address the elephant in the room and fostering discussion on that one big topic people would rather avoid, says Benedikt Franke, the forum’s vice-chairman and CEO. But there’s more than just one elephant this year — a herd.

UN chief: We must avoid the mistakes that led to World War I

Winston Churchill once said: "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Those words ring as true today as they did in 1948. Churchill, who served in the First World War before he led Britain through the Second, knew all too well the miscalculations that presidents and prime ministers made leading up to the Great War.

A century later, the UN's top diplomat, Secretary-General António Guterres, fears that world leaders today are making the same mistakes that got us into WWI. In an exclusive interview for GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, Guterres explains what makes him so wary of this moment in geopolitics.

"Golda" looks back at Israel's controversial former PM

It’s hard to imagine today, but for a tense few hours in 1973, it looked like the country of Israel might cease to exist. Half a century later, Israeli-American filmmaker Guy Nattiv has made a new film about Israel's prime minister at the time, Golda Meir, and those fateful few days during the Yom Kippur War. He speaks with GZERO World's Alex Kliment about why he wanted to reframe the former PM's story, who is played by Helen Mirren.

Henry Kissinger turns 100

Ian Bremmer's Quick Take: Hi everybody. Ian Bremmer here. Happy Tuesday to you after Memorial Day weekend, and I thought I'd talk for a bit about Dr. Kissinger since he's just turned 100 old. I'm pretty sure he's the only centenarian that I know well. And lots of people have spoken their piece about how much they think he's an amazing diplomat, unique, and how much they think he's a war criminal, unique. And maybe not surprising to anyone, I'm a little bit in between those views.

Medieval Italy, the Peruzzis & the world's first bank run
The world's first bank run: the Peruzzis of medieval Italy | GZERO World

Medieval Italy, the Peruzzis & the world's first bank run

Bank runs. Market volatility. Panic in the streets. When I say we’ve been here before, I don’t just mean 2008 or 1929. One of the earliest recorded bank runs dates back to the 14th century. Italian city-states like Florence and Venice sat at the crossroads of trade routes between Asia and Europe and were financial hubs. In the early 1300s, the “Peruzzi” family quickly became one of the most powerful and wealthy in Florence, through a highly profitable textile trade that focused on imported English wool.

Japan’s history of political assassinations
Ian Explains: A History of Political Assassinations in Japan | GZERO World

Japan’s history of political assassinations

The shocking assassination a week ago of former Prime Minister Shinzo has rattled Japan, where such acts of political violence are now extremely rare — but were once common.

In 1932, the head of government was killed by army cadets in an attempted coup. In 1960, Abe's own grandfather, also then-PM, survived a knife attack. Japan's last high-profile assassination occurred that same year, when a socialist politician was stabbed to death on national television.
