The University of Oxford's Saïd Business School will host the prestigious “Round Table Conference”, organised by MIT World Peace University, Pune, India, chaired by founder president Dr Vishwanath Karad. This will be a one-day round-table conference bringing together leading experts around the globe on a broad discussion on leveraging both AI technology and education systems to promote peace and global harmony.

The round table conference at the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School is themed “Establishing a Peace-Loving Global Society through Value-Based Education System”. The participating global leading speakers will also address all the questions raised by UNESCO on giving adequate attention to teaching peace.

"The pathway to higher education is a journey that takes learning beyond classrooms, beyond degrees. At MIT-WPU, we groom generations who will be the architects of tomorrow, drivers of positive global change and ambassadors of world peace”, said Dr Vishwanath D Karad founder of MIT WPU.

“In a time of AI and when AGI is around the corner the way we define the Digital sentients we are creating will rewrite our new evolutionary next steps.

AI can and must be programmed and used to foster the best of humanity and its tools need to be integrated into the very integrated fabric of how to educate and coach people on peace-building and conflict resolution techniques but needs total focus. 

By creating better understanding tools and platforms that provide education across cultural and national boundaries, AI can foster the way we learn DNA understanding and tolerance. 

Gandhi's emphasis on education as a powerful tool for change is apt here: 

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. 

Learn as if you were to live forever."

Education and Awareness are the critical elements but are hard and continuing work as we are dependent on our humanity duality”, Said about the topic Dinis Guarda, CEO of ztudium, author, academic, influencer & serial entrepreneur.
