By ITU News

Founder and Executive Chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, Peter H. Diamandis, welcomed participants to the AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva, Switzerland this week by stressing the opportunity to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to solve the world’s grandest challenges.

“Today we have a literal technology arms race going around the world, where every major tech company is investing billions of dollars into AI,” Mr Diamandis told Summit participants.

“AI is probably the most important technology the human race will ever create, to allow us to create a world of abundance […] to create a world in which we uplift every single human on the planet.”

Diamandis also emphasized the importance of creating guidelines that will allow us to use this powerful tool for good.
