Embracing AI's potential while mitigating risks

AI is the transformational technology of our generation and will change the world as we know it. But we will only realise its full potential if we successfully navigate the risks we face.

AI systems already have human-like abilities in many domains - GPT4 performed in the 90th percentile for the bar exam and the 89th percentile for SAT Maths. DeepMind’s AlphaFold has revolutionised structural biology and could change drug discovery forever, while AI applications are changing the way we learn and how education is delivered. With Goldman Sachs’ forecasting that generative AI could increase productivity growth by 1.5 percentage points over a 10 year period, and raise global GDP by 7%, the economic potential is incredible and it could lift millions out of poverty.

But to realise these substantial benefits, we will need to manage the technical and ethical risks. In the shorter term, the potential for AI generated misinformation is rife and will likely interfere with US and UK elections in 2024. Solving challenges around bias, transparency and explainability are essential for trust in AI systems. And in the longer term, leading experts have suggested that AGI is an existential risk to humanity. How we solve for alignment and effectively regulate the technology to safeguard our future is one of the critical issues of our age.

The Coming Wave

AI is coming, and Mustafa Suleyman is one of the pioneers of artificial intelligence leading the charge. His startup Inflection AI, fresh from raising $1.3 billion, is breaking new ground in conversational AI. Suleyman will be speaking after joining other AI industry giants at the White House in making concrete commitments to containing AI.

At CogX, Mustafa will focus on how language models will revolutionise our daily lives and drive irreversible changes in society. His new book, "The Coming Wave," combines a stark warning and a hopeful guide, exploring the unprecedented potential and risks posed by the tremendous proliferation of intelligence and raw power in history. During his session, Mustafa will discuss his book and answer questions on how AI will affect every aspect of our lives in what will be the biggest challenge for us all: "How do we get the next 10 years right?"

We expect Mustafa to brief us on the hot topics:
- What would a modern Turing test look like, and how should we assess the capabilities of AI?
- What should the UK do to become an AI superpower?
- What is the role of international agencies and governments in regulating AI and how urgently do we need action?
- How do we hold AI labs accountable? And what are the risks if we don’t?
- How far are we from AGI? And what will bring the next leap of progress in LLMs?

What is the CogX Festival?

The CogX Festival started in 2017 to focus attention on the rising impact of AI on Industry, Government and Society, a subject which has never been higher on the global agenda. Over 6 years, CogX has now evolved to be a Festival of Inspiration, Impact and Transformational Change, with its mission to address the question: “How do we get the next 10 years right?”.

With our expansion to The O2, it will be our biggest and most impactful Festival to date. The new venue allows us to both maximise impact through inclusivity and scale whilst simultaneously delivering an unrivalled programme for executives. We expect an audience consisting of entrepreneurs and CEOs, students from over 100 universities, and academics, activists, artists, and policy makers who make up our community.

Past speakers include Jensen Huang, CEO Nvidia, John Kerry, former US Secretary of State, Margrethe Vestager EU Commissioner for Competition, Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland, Martin Sorrell and the great Nile Rodgers.
