Watch the video



With the unprecedented growth in High Performance Computing and the expansion of the Internet, AI-based technologies present a promising opportunity for humanity to achieve new discoveries and generate new knowledge, offer new ways to do business, solve chronic problems, and perhaps pave the way for a new geopolitical and economic change!

All this potential is not without dangers, challenges, and new problems. Especially if it is left without any ethical controls. From laying off workforce, retiring or changing work roles, affecting democratic processes, controlling privacy, freedom and human behaviour, to potentially damaging the society.

Let’s take a deep dive into what ChatGPT, one of the most controversial AI technologies available today, has to offer in addition to a live session with the chatbot.
