Preventing the Misuse of Emerging Technologies: What can be done and which governance system to put in place?
This event is part of the Geneva Science and Diplomacy Week
Rapid evolutions in the development of disruptive emerging technologies (synthetic biology, artificial intelligence and neuroscience among others) are giving rise to concerns over their potential misuses and malicious uses. These technologies’ impacts on international security, privacy, democracy and society at large are among the chief concerns. The need for governance in this field is urgent. There therefore is a necessity to raise awareness about the best practices and governance systems which can help prevent the technologies’ misuses and malicious uses. This discussion gathers a panel composed of the GCSP’s three Polymath Fellows in synthetic biology, artificial intelligence and neurosciences to discuss these issues.
