Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on everyone's mind, with the power to either disrupt democracy or make the world a better place. As AI experiences massive growth, the race is on to outpace challenges in cyberspace and harness its potential for the greater good.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a hot topic of discussion, especially with its potential to both harm and help society. The recent Global Stage livestream conversation 'Risks and Rewards of AI,' hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft at this year's World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, brought AI experts together to weigh in on this critical issue. As a quantum computing evangelist, I'm excited by the possibilities that lie ahead. As AI continues to grow rapidly, so does the ability for malicious actors to use it for nefarious purposes. In these uncertain times, the United States and other countries must work tirelessly to stay ahead of the curve in cyberspace. Microsoft Vice Chair and President Brad Smith emphasized at the Munich Security Conference that, with the right engineering team and commitment, problems in AI can be corrected far faster than most issues we face in life. It's time we take these challenges seriously and leverage our resources to harness AI's potential for good. The future of AI is not all doom and gloom. If we can navigate the risks and harness its power responsibly, AI holds the potential to make the world a better place. As we continue to push the boundaries of technology, it's essential to keep a keen eye on the ethical and societal implications of AI's growth. The conversation surrounding AI is just beginning, and it's up to us to shape its trajectory for the greater good. Let's embrace the possibilities that AI and quantum computing hold for our future and work together to ensure a bright and prosperous tomorrow.
