Leaders in the artificial intelligence sector from the United Nations, the University of Cambridge and leading global AI policy consultation firms will be heading to Malta this February for the debut AI In Business Malta Summit.

This will set the stage for the "bigger and more intensive" AI in Business Malta Expo, set to take place in September.

“Artificial intelligence is everywhere these days,” said Matthew Fenech, an AI Policy Consultant who has advised the UK and Welsh Parliaments. “It has been described by world-leading economists as ‘the most important general purpose technology of our era, on a par with electricity.’ Stephen Hawking himself said that AI could be ‘the best […] thing ever to happen to humanity'."

The one-day seminar and networking event will take place at the MFCC in Ta Qali' on the 22nd February

The much-anticipated event will feature three world-class speakers, who will provide a practical overview of AI technology and the ways it is already changing the world and businesses.

Leading the panel will be Matthew Fenech, who will be joined by the Head of the Centre of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at the United Nations, Irakli Beridze, and Charlotte Stix, a Research Associate and Policy Officer for the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence at the University of Cambridge, an advisor on European AI Policy, and a Fellow of the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Neurotechnologies and Brain Sciences.

“With this Expo, we want to make sure that Malta can bring its great strengths to the AI revolution,” Fenech continued.

“With its world-class connectivity, the Government’s forward-thinking policy around new technology such as blockchain, and its highly-skilled ICT workforce, Malta has a fantastic opportunity to position itself as the foremost centre for AI in the Mediterranean.”

The one-day AI in Business Malta Summit will be the launchpad for September much bigger AI in Business Malta Expo

The expo will bring together a range of international experts to explore the impact and benefits of this phenomenon on various fields. These include financial services, manufacturing, logistics, transport, and health – all addressed from the perspective of the local business community.

“Both the Summit in February and the Expo in September have the same aim, that of giving local businesses a better understanding of how AI could help them revolutionise the way they work, change the way they interact with their clients, and up their targets,” Matthew ended.
