The Panel, moderated by MC Rose Senesi, was attended by the Deputy Premier of the Government of South Australia, the Honourable Susan Close, as guest of honour.

A highly topical subject of growing importance on the international agenda, Artificial Intelligence is a theme present in the Italian program of the G7 Presidency as this technology can generate great opportunities but also enormous risks, affecting geopolitical balances. Hence, the need to develop governance mechanisms and ensure that AI remains human-centric and human-controlled.
