Szkoła Główna Mikołaja Kopernika

"I gave a talk on the regulation of #AI at the fabulous SGMK - Nicolaus Copernicus Superior School in Warsaw last week, emphasising themes of value pluralism and democracy. Many thanks to the organisers for a brilliant first time experience in Poland".
"Thanks to Piotr Turek for the invitation as well as Szkoła Główna Mikołaja Kopernika for organizing the event. Remarkable lineup with Nobel Laureate Didier Queloz, Michael Brodie from Harvard, Nick Bostrom from Oxford, and futurist Gerd Leonhard among the many.".
"Last week I had the pleasure of speaking in front of impressive 180-degree LED walls (aka "superkeynote format") at one of the most exciting #AI conferences in my career so far: "The Futurist of the Year", hosted by the newly established Szkoła Główna Mikołaja Kopernika in Warsaw.

Off stage I had some very inspiring conversations with fellow speakers Michael Brodie Mark Coeckelbergh, Jonathan Brill, Gerd Leonhard and Wesley Rosslyn-Smith - just to name a few.

This week will stay with me forever. Thanks for making it possible, Piotr Turek and team, and all the best for your future work!"
"The visionary congress was unlike any congresses in my career and a very intellectually stimulating week. It was the brainchild of Piotr Turek, Rector of Szkoła Główna Mikołaja Kopernika innovative initiative – bring brilliant people based on expertise and not on national boundaries nor on current university offerings to elevate what the future may hold to be considered for the university.

The Congress reflected his emerging vision of a modern university – addressing the most advanced, influential disciplines and issues of our time, by collaborative, multidisciplinary means.

"The Rector of Szkoła Główna Mikołaja Kopernika together with his colleagues and the Polish Government is launching an ambitious and unusual effort – the creation of a modern university to address modern education and research needs, not bound by hundreds of years of academic practice. It is a very impressive charter and effort even in its first year".
"Rogue waves occur when energy focuses in a time and place. We see them in ocean waves. We see them in optics. We also see them in innovation.

Visiting SGMK this week, I experienced one of those places. Nobel prize winning astronomers, Generals, medical researchers, economists, educators, philosophers, theologians, legal scholars all having a common conversation. It's rare to have the best people in so many fields all looking for ways to build the potential of Poland and acting with such generosity to help build an institution".
