Roundtable for diplomats

“Dancing with the Disruptor: Is the World Ready for Artificial Intelligence?”

Mr. Abdu Murray, J. D.

Artificially intelligent software like ChatGPT is capturing the world’s imagination and promises to improve our lives and make time for greater creativity. And yet even AI experts warn us that we do not have any ability to predict the kinds of disruptions AI will bring to global economies, governments, social structures and even our definitions of what it means to be human.

Mr. Abdu Murray explores how ancient wisdom can guide us in our courtship with artificial intelligence, the most powerful change agent of modern times in this engaging roundtable for diplomats.
