AI conference to be held in the Cayman Islands

AI Forum, a leading research and information source on Artificial Intelligence, has launched an annual conference focused on several hot button industry topics such as the intersection of AI and Human Rights and how AI is disrupting the global economy.

The all-day event will be held at the Grand Cayman Marriott Resort on 28 November 2022.  Featuring senior and experienced AI industry professionals from top tier organisations including Google, Meta, IBM, Morgan Stanley and Harvard Medical School, attendees will be able to join sessions and take advantage of in-person networking opportunities.

Ian Gilmour, Chair of AI Forum’s Advisory Board, said that AI Forum’s first annual conference will provide an opportunity to meet AI thought leaders in the fields of Enterprise, Financial Services, Healthcare and Education.

“The Cayman Islands will deliver a stunning backdrop for the event. We are delighted to be working closely with Cayman’s public and private sectors as this world class international financial centre adds Artificial Intelligence to existing sophisticated capabilities in financial services and technology,” he said.

The Hon Andre Ebanks MP, Minister of Financial Services and Commerce, and Minister of Innovation, Investment and Social Development will be providing the opening address.

“I am thrilled to support events that showcase the Cayman Islands as a centre of excellence in technology and innovation. AI is emerging as a powerful tool in so many areas of our professional and personal lives, including financial services, healthcare and education, and the Cayman Islands is poised to develop in this area, which presents potentially significant opportunities for young aspiring Caymanians. I look forward to meeting the delegates and sharing important updates from the Ministry of Financial Services & Commerce as well as the Ministry of Investment, Innovation and Social Development,” he said.

Focal points of the day include Aditi Joshi of Google who has conducted privacy reviews for Google products and contributed to the US National Privacy Framework drafted by the White House federal agency NIST, leading a Roundtable on AI Legislation, and Utpal Mangla, a recognized Global Leader of IBM’s Telco, Media, Entertainment (TME) Industry presenting on the power of AI and Edge Computing and why the combination of these two technologies will disrupt multiple industries.
