Professor Alex Pentland highlights at the Conference on November 17, at Stanford Digital Economy Lab:
“New technologies such as Blockchain, AI, and Smart Contracts, which together are often called “Web3” present new digital means of production and an opportunity to rebalance the relationships between all stakeholders of the economy. As humans continue to develop brilliant new applications of emerging technologies, we need to reimagine the ways our society is organized so that data serves all communities. It especially important that we ensure that collective citizen organizations manage the way data is controlled, that we build more resilient and inclusive systems that spread financial and health benefits more widely, and that we ensure that systems are interoperable so that knowledge, trade, and interaction can flow across company and national boundaries.”
The Global Alliance for Digital Governance supports Professor Pentland and Stanford Digital Economy Lab in this strategy through the Manifesto “AIWS Actions to create an Age of Global Enlightenment.” In this Manifesto, Boston Global Forum (BGF) create the model “Global Enlightenment Economy” and will work with the United Nations and the governments of US, European Commission, Japan, and India. On November 22, 2022, professor Pentland will speak at the BGF 10th Anniversary Conference at Harvard University Loeb House with speakers such as UN Envoy on Technology Amandeep Gill, Japanese Minister of Defense Yasukazu Hamada, Governor Michael Dukakis, former US Acting Secretary of Commerce Cameron Kerry, and more.
