Workshop Details

Digital Raign’s Conscious AI Summit is an invitation to both experiential and conversational sessions with a focus on actionable outcomes. This segment of The X Series will go beyond the technical possibilities and application potential of artificial intelligence to include the intersection of AI, consciousness, human potential, and social impact. Our investigations will illuminate and explore the positive implementations and activations of this powerful technology. We will delve into the concerns voiced by science and technology leaders such as Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and others about the future impact of this potent technology, and initiatives focused on the ethics of AI’s development and deployment. Now is the time to establish the ethos of AI; this technology is projected to dominate all forms of software in the next five years, and be equal to a single human's intelligence by 2030 and the collective intelligence of civilization by 2045.
This is an invitation to technology, business, government, and cultural leaders to convene, ideate, and co-create positive, impactful strategies focused on tech for good as the Fourth Industrial Revolution continues to rapidly take shape and accelerate.
Based on Esalen’s history as the birthplace of the human potential movement and the Institute's emerging edge of exploring technology for good, we will be navigating the social impacts of this exponential technology and themes related to inclusion, responsible AI, the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, policy frameworks, and intelligence augmentation, among others.
