Mr. Wagmaister’s session, entitled “Artificial Intelligence: Responsible Growth for Maximum Impact” will take place in the Miami Room, from 2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. The full panel lineup includes:

  • Marcelo Cabrol, Manager, Social Sector, Inter-American Development Bank

  • Moderator: Erich de la Fuente, Partner and Chairman, LLYC U.S.

Issues related to the proliferation of AI include privacy protection, data prejudice, manipulation and misuse. “As more businesses begin using artificial intelligence, the challenge is how to leverage/capture all the benefits that AI provides to human beings and at the same time prevent the threats and mitigate risks that the use, without the necessary control could create. Latin American business leaders must take into account factors such as accountability, fairness, and transparency issues,” said Roberto Wagmaister, gA’s President & CEO.

The Annual Council of the Americas (COA) Symposium/Bravo Awards event is the premiere full-day business conference for the Western Hemisphere, gathering 500 top minds across the spectrum of innovative business and government influencers, entrepreneurs, humanitarians, and industry pioneers.
