Join Future of HumAnIty where experts and innovators discuss how AI, Quantum and other new technologies will impact our future and how we can proactively take charge. The event includes a Keynote Speech by former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations Michael Møller, and a Panel Discussion by Experts and Visioners. It all ends with a glass of cava.  



How do we remain in charge of our future? – The challenge of new technologies and other existential threats, Michael Møller, former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations. 
Against the backdrop of rapidly evolving new technologies, accelerating climate change, a changing world order and other existential threats, Møller raises the question of what humanity should do to stay in charge of its future. 
He will particularly look at the evolution of quantum, AI, human augmentation, geo-engineering, and other future technologies, all of which have the potential to change the fabric of humanity itself. He will interact with a diverse panel about how we can harness technology that, without the right control may threaten our very existence.  

The talk will be followed by a panel discussion with experts and visioners.
