The World Leader for Peace and Security Award 2015 recipient, former PM Shinzo Abe, presented a speech at this event as well.

Andreas Norlen said:” I want to start by thanking Governor Michael Dukakis and Boston Global Forum for selecting me for the World Leader for Peace and Security Award 2021. I am honoured and proud both for the award and for the opportunity to address you today. Your organisation plays an important role in working for a more peaceful and secure world, for instance by raising both the potentials and risks of artificial intelligence and other digital technologies. Your initiative on Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital is timely and important.”

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe presented his special speech at the Boston Global Forum Symposium “Framework for Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital” on December 12, 2021.

After noting threats and dangers from AI and Digital to peace and security in the world, he highlighted: There are nations that plan to spread disinformation through deep fakes, inciting and brainwashing their citizens.

To solve these issues, he stated “we need to think outside the box.”
