Impacting Trends in Key Sectors This powerful list of AI stakeholders at the World Governments Summit highlights the major global momentum the event enjoys, as well as its impact on shaping the global trends of key sectors. Similarly, the huge participation at its various sessions and workshops proves WGS has become the ideal and largest global platform for governments, organisations and businesses to share knowledge, forge partnerships and come up with creative concepts and ideas to maximise the benefits of positive change and global progress.

An Agenda to Boost the Role of Governments The World Governments Summit agenda is full of sessions, workshops and side events addressing the various aspects of AI and its applications. The Artificial Intelligence Forum will act as a catalyst for international cooperation and multi-sector partnerships, further driving responsible AI-centric progress for the benefit of all communities.

The Forum looks into reaching a global consensus on developing and adopting principles of responsible AI, by launching global dialogues that bring together private and public sector officials. It also addresses enhancing AI capabilities by developing education and infrastructure sectors and formulating future policies.

The WGS agenda also features special dialogues with developers of major AI programmes, a panel discussion about governments’ ability to keep up in the age of AI, and the role of governments in shaping the future ethics of AI.

Separately, the World Governments Summit (WGS) 2024 plays a key role in forecasting the future of digital healthcare and global health priorities. The summit will hold qualitative sessions within its agenda to discuss the future of global health in light of the urban growth that governments are witnessing and the acceleration of technological transformation to search for innovative solutions in this field.

These solutions are expected to contribute to shaping a better future and achieving the well-being of societies.

Digital health has been an exceptional addition to the health sector, as digital transformation has contributed to opening up new and promising horizons after keeping pace with the developments of modern technology, such as the use of artificial intelligence (AI). The World Health Organisation (WHO) confirmed in a previous press release that AI tools have transformed the health sector. The organisation realises the potential of this field in terms of improving medical diagnosis, enhancing clinical trials, healthcare and self-care, and bridging the gap in medical skills shortages in environments that lack specialists.
