On 30th September 2018, we organised the second edition of Les Entretiens d’Abu Dhabi, focusing on the future of Artificial Intelligence and the arrival of the robot age.
This conference was an extension of the discussions in December 2017 at the Entretiens de Royaumont, and it was held with the participation of its founder Jérôme Chartier. In the UAE, the topic holds a particular importance in view of the newly created UAE Ministry of Artificial Intelligence.
AI is transforming daily life, in education, culture, sustainable development, economy, security and defence. Through round-tables, conferences and networking opportunities, participants heard the views of experts, thinkers and entrepreneurs from France, Abu Dhabi and all over the world on Culture & Knowledge; Security & Human Society; Mobility; Sustainability and Energy; Banking.
Several ministers of state, CEOs of major organisations, experts and advisors shared their latest developments in AI technology and practical advice for applying them to your business.

Grown out of meetings and exchanges organised in the 1st half of the 20th century in the Abbey of Royaumont in France, Les Entretiens are a yearly cycle of conferences aimed at imaging the future and opened to unrestricted discussions. Since 2003, major decisions makers, entrepreneurs and recognised experts deliberate and exchange with complete freedom of expression on topics ranging from politics, economics, social sciences, foreign affairs and technology. The theme of the 2018 edition is « Being a Woman ».
The first edition of the Entretiens d’Abu Dhabi was held in 2016, devoted to the future of energy and the protection of the environment.
