Webinar with Vice-Chancellor: AI and power

01 June 2020

How can we maximise the potential of artificial intelligence while safeguarding our future?

The first in the University of Cambridge's digital Global Cambridge webinar featured the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen J Toope who presented and moderate a discussion with Dr Seán Ó hÉigeartaigh, Co-Director of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk and Dr Kanta Dihal, a postdoctoral researcher. Together, they discussed the benefits and challenges arising from our increasing use of artificial intelligence, including its use in addressing the many threats posed by the current pandemic, but exploring more broadly the use of artificial intelligence that is integral to – and sometimes invisible in — our daily lives. 

Global Cambridge offers alumni around the world the opportunity to hear from and engage with leading Cambridge academics.
