United Nations Charter Day Roundtable: The Social Contract 2020, A New Social Contract in the Age of AI, and Intellectual Society

The livestream can be found here.

Ramu Damodaran, Chief of United Nations Academic Impact: “We prepare to observe the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, we in the Academic Impact are particularly mindful of the opportunities, challenges and dangers inherent in new and emerging technologies which were unforeseen at the time the Organization was founded.

We look ahead to the global landscape in 2045, when the United Nations completes its first centenary, in areas of these technologies, including artificial intelligence, cyber security and weapons systems, among others. Such a compilation which looks both to the horizon ahead and the role of the United Nations in making it beneficial and secure, would be timely.”

On United Nations Charter Day June 26, 2020, the Boston Global Forum and the United Nations Academic Impact organize a UN Charter Day Roundtable to talk about A New Social Contract in the Age of AI and Intellectual Society.

The UN Charter Day Roundtable will discuss the world in 2045 with deeply applied AI, how to upgrade civil society to Intellectual Society, a knowledge-based global society, and how the Social Contract 2020 will happen in 2045.

 

The UN Charter Day Roundtable is a part of the United Nations 2045 Initiative.
