SUMMER PEACE SUMMIT
VISION FOR FUTURE
Under High Patronage of H.R.H. Princess Léa of Belgium
If there is anything certain about our future, it’s that technological progress will rapidly be creating change of a dimension mankind never before experienced. This will provide tremendous opportunities for global prosperity and world peace – but also huge risks! Some experts speculate that, in less than 20 years, we will have a “singularity”, meaning that computers and the human brain may have the same capacity. This fosters many fears, exceeding today’s fears, about Artificial Intelligence (AI) that most jobs will soon be gone. However, others are saying that AI is only based on algorithms without a conscious mind. Machines follow mere logic, not knowing what – or why – they are doing something and – of course – without questioning the ethics of what they are doing. They conclude that man will always be on the driver’s seat. Unfortunately, this does not reduce related fears in our societies. All innovations can be used either for good or bad. That’s nothing new to learn – other than that, in the past, the outcome often was random.
These innovation cycles can’t be stopped or reverted! However, if we want our future to be good, we need to tackle the fear. This can only happen through information that is available to be accessed by and debated within the wider public. Understanding takes away fears and leads towards action – in a positive sense!
That’s where the Living Tomorrow's Art platform comes in by creating sustainable partnerships to inform and to discuss innovation across borders and stakeholders and launch initiative.
