ArmInfo. It is important for Armenian citizens to overcome fears of new technologies. Fear is the very factor that daily hinders the development and progress of the country, the movement towards victory. This was announced on October 16 at the opening of the Global Innovation Forum, initiated by the Aurora Initiative, said Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
According to him, the problem of regulating the relationship between man and technology has always been relevant. During the first industrial revolution, human fear of machine tools was also noted. And when they were introduced into production in order to replace manual labor with mechanical labor, artisans, who at that time had serious weight in societies, burst into manufactories, smashing these machines. "And their concern was completely legitimate and understandable. If the work that we do should be done by machines, then what should we do," the head of government said, adding that time has led to interesting phenomena. First of all, the thought of man was freed up, which made it possible to conquer new spaces. New technologies, continued Nikol Pashinyan, are new thinking.
He also emphasized that the most important and urgent issue on the agenda is the development of artificial intelligence, which will free a person's thought in the same way that a person's hands were released at one time. "The freed thought will provide an opportunity for the development of thinking and the conquest of new spaces," the head of government concluded, wishing success to the forum participants. Note that the Global Innovation Forum (GIF) on the topic "Transforming Intelligence" is aimed at studying the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on science and society from the point of view of science, technology and industry. At GIF19, leading scholars and ideological leaders will take part in academic discussions and debates about the vision of the future, sharing experiences and results of their research. GIF19 will be held in an atmosphere of futurism and will be filled with meaningful events. The forum will serve as a platform for bringing together academia, industry, governments, politicians, international organizations and financial institutions, gathering in one place outstanding minds and experts from all these diverse worlds in order to determine the future of scientific and technological transformations.
