This week we are “On a Mission” with global innovator and thought leader, Mo Gawdat for an eye opening conversation about the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on humanity.

As someone who has experienced the development of AI first-hand as the former Chief Business Officer of Google X, Mo shares his insights on the potential dangers and benefits of AI technology. He discusses the fundamental differences between Eastern and Western values, highlighting the need for a balance between individualism and collective action.

We discuss the urgency of addressing the ethical and societal implications of AI, warning that the rapid advancements could pose significant threat to humanity.


"The core values of the West are freedom and a focus on the individual."

"Humanity didn't survive the dangerous years because of any intelligence of any single one of us. We survived because we could actually be together as a tribe."

"We're going through the most defining moment in human history… We rate wisdom by the one who dispenses it and our love and hate to them."

"AI is now on track to develop. It's inevitable. It's going to be part of our life. It's already part of our life."

"AI could be a dystopia that really destroys humanity as we know it. Or it could be a utopia that really creates an amazing dream life for all of us."
