The CogX Festival, a premier global gathering, attracted a diverse group of leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, policymakers, artists, academics, and activists. This exclusive event provided attendees with a unique opportunity to gain insights from influential individuals shaping our era.

With its promise of three days filled with enlightening talks, exceptional networking opportunities, and access to the latest innovations, the festival aimed to immerse participants in the limitless possibilities offered by technology while acknowledging the challenges that must be addressed.

Among the esteemed speakers such as Yuval Noah Harari, Tom Graham, Tania Bryer, Steven Bartlett, Reid Hoffman, and others, our own Anna Bulakh, Head of Partnerships and Ethics at Respeecher made her mark in two panel discussions.

In the first panel, "The Weaponisation of Generative AI," Anna Bulakh, along with Nina Schick and Henry Ajder, focused on the significant implications of the misuse of generative AI technology, particularly concerning deep fakes. They also engaged in a captivating conversation about the ethical concerns surrounding generative AI. Drawing on her extensive background in security and defense, Anna emphasized the importance of ethical frameworks and responsible AI practices to mitigate the potential misuse of emerging technologies. 

The second panel, titled "Reel Ethics" showcased Anna's profound understanding of the ethical considerations associated with AI integration. Addressing concerns and apprehensions about AI replacing human creativity, Anna highlighted the value of thoughtful reflection and a collaborative approach to creating a harmonious synergy between human ingenuity and technological advancements. Her emphasis on demystifying fears and fostering collaboration resonated deeply with the audience, instilling a sense of courage and responsibility in embracing AI's transformative potential.

This session also delves into the ethical concerns that arise when technology infiltrates the creative sphere. It tackles the challenges of obtaining explicit consent when incorporating an artist's work into AI models, explores fair compensation, and examines methods to preserve artist recognition in AI-generated content. The session also addresses the potentially trust-eroding effects of deepfake technologies and scrutinizes how AI can authentically represent diverse cultural experiences.
