What is the current status of Artificial Intelligence as an Existential Risks? In our debate, policy-makers, experts, academia and decision-makers will go head-to-head to decide what the best way forward will be.

The development of AI has been incredible fast over the last decade. We seem to be able to keep up less and less, while the abilities of AI will soon outpace us.

And what is their responsibility to do something about it?
