WIRED Live: Exploring the challenges facing the Middle East's future economy
Experts from the Technology Innovation Institute, Google, the University of Waterloo, NYU Abu Dhabi, and more discuss the future of AI and quantum computing in the Middle East.

AI: FUELING THE AUTONOMOUS AGE
Artificial intelligence will soon underpin our cars, drone swarms, and a host of other devices in an impending autonomous age. But what are the implications of this game-changing technology? In this 35 minute panel moderated by McKinsey partner Vinay Chandra, attendees have a chance to learn how senior academic researchers and corporate policy heads are approaching the technology's ability to disrupt businesses and challenge our ethics. You'll hear from the Technology Innovation Institute's chief AI and telecoms researcher Prof Mérouane Debbah, Google's global policy lead for emerging technologies Charina Chou, and the provost of the Mohammed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence, Prof Fakhri Karray.

QUANTUM SECURITY: How to stay safe in the next computing age
Quantum computers are moving the world of theory to reality around the world, spurring excitement about how they can unravel mysteries in nature and science—and raising concerns in the world of cybersecurity. In our second panel, moderated by NYU Abu Dhabi Professor Hisham Sati, we explore how these qubit-powered machines carry the potential to crack the security protocols protecting our online systems. Sati, the director of NYU Abu Dhabi's Center for Quantum and Topological Systems, leads a discussion on how companies can protect themselves in the new quantum age. Attendees will have a chance to hear from Dr Najwa Aaraj, chief researcher at TII’s Cryptography Research Center, Michele Mosca, the co-founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, and Avast’s chief information security officer Jaya Baloo. After hearing their insights, we think you'll walk away feeling reassured about the future of security.
