Nobel Peace Prize Recipient Irakli Beridze to present at AiDecentralized Summit in Toronto

Published: April 26th, 2018 By:

Toronto – On May 22, Irakli Beridze, Head of the United Nations Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (UNICRI), joins an impressive lineup of thought leaders in blockchain and artificial intelligence at AiDecentralized, the first in a series of global summits initiated by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

A stellar, full-day event designed to connect the AI (artificial intelligence) and blockchain communities, AiDecentralized promises compelling insights into just what’s possible when two revolutionary technologies come together for a common goal. Each is transformative on its own, but together blockchain and AI achieve a synergy that has critical implications for data accountability, security, and oversight.

Beridze initiated and managed the first United Nations Program on AI and Robotics and has organized high-level events for the United Nations General Assembly and other international organizations. Renowned for his efforts to enhance understanding of AI’s risk-benefit duality, he advises governments and international organizations on issues related to global security, sustainable development, emerging technologies, and political trends. Prior to joining UNICRI, Beridze undertook missions in politically sensitive areas around the globe as a special projects officer at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). In this capacity, he was the recipient of recognition on the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to OPCW in 2013.

AiDecentralized takes place on May 22nd in Toronto at the storied Fairmont Royal York. The five-star event features presentations by the experts in today’s two hottest technologies, including ACM Turing Award recipient, Silvio Micali, former Wikimedia CEO, Lila Tretikov, ColliderX and Canadian Blockchain Co-founder, Marc Lijour, and IBM Master Inventor, Neil Sahota.

“The extraordinary challenges that face our global society require extraordinary solutions,” says Irakli Beridze. “AiDecentralized is one of these solutions. By combining the skills, expertise, knowledge, and brain power of the AI and blockchain communities, this summit has the potential to be a real game-changer in our quest to build a safe, prosperous, and happy future.”

ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society, delivers resources that advance computing as a science and a profession. ACM provides the computing field’s premier Digital Library and serves its members and the computing profession with leading-edge publications, conferences, and career resources.

Other sponsors for the event are TODA, ITWC, SingularityNET …
