The Cobden Centre has worked on emerging technologies around the world. This has included organising the Future of Artificial intelligence Roundtable discussions in the European Parliament, as well as organising the 5 day long Blockchain Summit in the European Parliament where we had the World Bank, IMF, United Nations, OECD and Europol among others attending, the first of its kind in the world.
This year the Journal of Artificial Intelligence, one of the oldest and most prestigious journals for AI, kindly gave us funding to produce materials explaining the nature of AI to policy-makers. How will AI develop over the next generation? What are the implications for economy and society? Also, how will it impact global geopolitics?
One of the first things we are doing is animations using some of the speeches given at events we have organised. Below is a speech from Christian Ebeke from the IMF at one of our AI events in the European Parliament. In this talk, Christian talks about how Europe has fallen behind in AI research and how important it will be for future developments.
