The Innovation Forum took place in Manama, Bahrain, on the 27th and 28th of September 2017, bringing together global, regional, as well as the biggest players in the Bahraini scene. The event was organized by the MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab in partnership with Bahrain EDB and Investcorp. It managed to attract global names and companies such as John Deftererios from CNN, and personnel from the likes of Kaspersky, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services.
Artificial Intelligence was a big part of the event, talks by the scholar at Yale University Wendell Wallach highlighted the promises and dangers of the technology on how to keep it from slipping beyond our control. A live demo by Denis Batalov showed what AI can currently do. Privacy and cybersecurity took a huge part of the event as well, with a panel led by Investcorp’s Gilbert Kamieniesky, who also moderated a fireside chat on cloud.
