Whether you are creator or user of AI technologies, this is a unique opportunity to have a seat at the table and actively participate in shaping AI policy, alongside key regulators from Switzerland and abroad.

“Nestlé is a global company, so we want to operate using the same standard in all the markets where we are, but if we make the regulation more complex we are limiting the opportunity to innovate.”
– David Campos Pavon, Nestlé

GOVERNMENT

In this exclusive event you will be able to align with all stakeholders and listen to their concerns and challenges first hand. This is certainly a powerful opportunity to set common ground and define next steps.

“Governance needs to evolve too. If everybody is at the table this is when we find solutions that may actually not just be what the people want but also work in the end.”

– Ambassador Thomas Schneider

ACADEMIA

With 2 academic paper sessions – led by ETH Zürich – we provide a forum for cutting edge research in AI Governance.

“The ubiquity of AI, and the scale of Big Data already means that we have a complex governance challenge. How do you trace lines of responsibility and liability through a system that has a learning component that is adapting?”

– Ron Chrisley, Stanford University

STUDENTS

A unique opportunity to learn directly from the experts, share your views and concerns, and actively take part in shaping AI policy.

GENERAL PUBLIC

Our AI Governance Conference is an unbiased platform where you will learn about the current state of AI policy. A safe space for you to be heard and highlight your concerns to key decission-makers, as well as challenge both regulators and businesses.
