SDGs & AI for good – Global talent in the age of Artificial Intelligence

 

Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2020 Launch - Panel & Lunch

The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) 2020 focuses on Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence and explores how to put talent at the service of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), such as reducing international inequalities, in an AI-disrupted work environment. In partnership with the Adecco Group and Google, INSEAD Professors Felipe Monteiro and Bruno Lanvin will disclose the latest rankings of the 7th edition of the GTCI, and will provide high level of visibility to the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society and the role of business in delivering the SDGs. This session will gather inputs from a variety of thought leaders on how to measure talent for impact as a contribution to the next GTCI.

Balancing AI productivity and responsibility

Panel & Cocktail

Considering the impact on productivity and the social implications of AI, we must collectively reflect on how to best develop and regulate AI now. The stakes are high. We risk constraining the transformational potential of this emergent technology, while creating new risks and future liabilities. This panel discussion convened by the INSEAD Hoffmann Institute will bring together decision makers to examine how regulators and businesses should balance the productivity gains and ethical challenges and new risks of AI. Led by INSEAD professor Theodoros Evgeniou, the panel conversation will articulate the multi-disciplinary challenge posed by AI, take stock of ongoing debates on responsible AI across stakeholder groups and present leading business and regulatory perspectives and solutions.

Managing inequality together: Ensuring that policy makers and business leaders are not talking past one another

 

Working Lunch

Business and governments alike agree that growing inequality is an issue facing many countries. However, suggestions on how to best deal with this problem vary considerably and policy makers and business leaders often have different ideas about what needs to be done and by whom. We aim to bridge the gap between business and policy makers through a series of discussions where INSEAD and its Hoffmann Institute, and The James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Centre for the Study of Wealth Inequality play the role of convener. This panel will help define how to best play this role. Led by Mark Stabile, INSEAD Professor of Economics, Academic Director of the Stone Centre and Deputy Academic Director, The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society.

 Friday 24 January
 12:30 - 2:00 PM
 Promenade 139, Davos, Switzerland
CLOSED - By invitation only
