      Demystifying Davos: Behind the scenes with GZERO & Microsoft

      A behind-the-scenes look at a cool workspace that quickly became the go-to gathering spot for everyone from members of the media to heads of state in Davos, Switzerland, for the 53rd World Economic Forum. Our partner and sponsor for the Global Stage series, Microsoft, hosted a diverse array of guests throughout the week at their café, located on the Promenade directly across from the Congress Center where the mainstage Forum events take place. Microsoft’s VP of Global Public Affairs, Steve Clayton, took us on a tour of the facility.

      Putin's tragic genius: war crimes & isolated Russia

      In a Global Stage delegate interview, on the ground in Davos, Ian Bremmer speaks to an old friend of the show, former Finnish PM Alexander Stubb. Stubb explains why Crimea is crucial for Ukraine's conception of "victory" against Russia and why Finland views its eastern neighbor with suspicion.

      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.

      Fighting crimes against humanity in a world of crisis

      Volker Türk, the new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is surprisingly candid about one of his organization's most famous shortcomings. The Security Council, which includes Russia as a permanent member, is "dysfunctional" on Ukraine. In a Global Stage delegate interview on the ground in Davos, Türk tells Ian Bremmer that believes it is critical that the Ukrainians, just as much as the Russians, abide by international human rights law.

      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.
