Topic: AI, ChatGPT, Blockchain, and Digital Currency (CBDC): Current Impact & Trends in 2030
Abstract: As we move towards a more digitalized world, the importance of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), generative pre-trained transformer (ChatGPT), blockchain, and digital currency (CBDC) continues to grow. These technologies have developed at an exponential rate, and their impacts on the financial sector, industry, and people’s lives are inevitable. In the past decade, technology has dramatically transformed how we live, work, and interact, and as we look to the future, it’s clear that emerging technologies will continue to shape our world. This panel discussion will explore the trends we can expect to see in the intersection of AI, ChatGPT, blockchain, and digital currency (CBDC) by 2030.
Our industry expert panelists will examine the potential impacts of these technologies, discussing topics such as the integration of artificial intelligence and ChatGPT into financial systems, the use of blockchain for secure and transparent transactions, and the potential for CBDC to revolutionize the way we think about money. The discussion will also consider the ethical and societal implications of these technologies, such as the potential for increased surveillance and the impact on employment and income inequality.
This panel discussion is a must-attend event for everyone interested in the intersection of finance, technology, and society in the near future—particularly finance professionals, policymakers, and anyone interested in the future of artificial intelligence and money. Attendees will gain valuable insights about the trends and challenges shaping the future of finance and technology as well as the potential implications for society.
