The third Qubic AI Summit took place in Costa Rica, following successful events in Madrid and Hong Kong. These summits aim to raise awareness about decentralized AI, with Qubic representatives Alberto Fernández and Aleix Ordeig advocating for a decentralized and collaborative approach to General AI development. They emphasize how Qubic addresses the ethical challenges associated with this revolutionary technology.

Key Highlights from the Costa Rica AI Summit

AI Governance and Ethics

Experts from UNESCO, Microsoft, and Accenture highlighted the importance of AI governance by users, voicing concerns about the concentration of computational power and energy supply.

Current AI Intelligence

Didier Mora Calderón, Microsoft’s AI Strategy Director, emphasized the transformative potential of AI across industries, enhancing productivity, efficiency, and cost savings. However, he also highlighted the urgent need for clear regulatory guidelines at corporate and governmental levels. Microsoft's AI principles focus on fairness, reliability, privacy, inclusion, transparency, and accountability.

General AI by 2027

Alberto Fernández projected that by 2027, we could achieve General Artificial Intelligence (AGI) that integrates multiple narrowly focused intelligences into a coherent whole, similar to human intelligence. This aligns with predictions by influential figures like Elon Musk and former OpenAI employees. AGI could revolutionize sectors such as finance, education, technology, and business.

Ethical Governance and Decentralization

The summit stressed the risks of AGI due to AI centralization in large companies. A decentralized and collaborative approach, as proposed by Qubic's founder Sergey Ivancheglo, ensures continuous participation and improvement by the global community. This model promotes a robust, universal network and a fair distribution of AI power and control, advancing technology ethically and equitably.

Qubic's Infrastructure and Partnerships

Qubic leverages its advanced infrastructure and Useful Proof-of-Work (UPoW) for AI training, ensuring broad miner participation and optimizing platform efficiency. Collaborations with companies like Microsoft and Accenture highlight Qubic’s positive impact across various sectors.

UNESCO's Human-Centered Governance Framework

Giselle Burbano from UNESCO emphasized the institution’s commitment to addressing inequalities and risks associated with AI, particularly in regions like Latin America. UNESCO promotes intergovernmental cooperation to face global technological challenges and empower local AI production and development.

AI Regulation

Daniel Rodríguez Mafioli from CAMT stressed the importance of adapting AI regulation to local needs rather than copying models like the European Union’s. He advocated for regulations that balance promotion and control, emphasizing education, data access, and ethical considerations.

Challenges and Sustainable Growth

Daniel Díez from Accenture highlighted the importance of open-source solutions and ethical standards in advancing towards General AI. He called for inclusive hubs involving SMEs, large companies, and governments, stressing the need for accessible innovation environments that drive progress and improve lives.

The 3rd Global Qubic Summit underscored the importance of decentralized AI development and ethical governance. Experts agreed that leveraging AI in sectors like health, science, logistics, education, and sustainability will create innovative solutions that drive progress and improve lives. The summit set the stage for future collaborations and developments, emphasizing the need for strategic investments that lead to sustainable growth and social welfare.
