The Institute for Advance Studies and Cooperation (IASC), in partnership with the London Intercultural Center, organized the “AIMS Conference 2024: World Tech Summit” on Sunday, May 19, 2024, at the Habtoor Resort in Dubai. The summit, titled “Redefining Tech Horizon: Navigating New Frontiers of Innovation and Culture,” brought together experts, innovators, and researchers from around the world to explore the latest advancements and future directions in technology.

The opening speech was held by Sheikh Dr. Eng. Abdullah Ali Al-Saihati, Honorary President of the London Intercultural Center, followed by a keynote speech from Hadi Brenjekjy, Executive Director of the Center. Brenjekjy emphasized the uniqueness of human intelligence amidst the vast opportunities, capabilities, possibilities, and challenges that artificial intelligence presents in the vmodern era of digital transformation.

Prof. Gabriele Pao-Pei Andreoli, President of  IASC, highlighted the institute’s pioneering support for innovation in artificial intelligence, biohacking, and their ethical implications. Throughout the year, IASC propel forward transformative initiatives such as H.I.T Malaria, Regenesis, Transcend, Heritage and more. Each project represents steadfast commitment to driving positive change and innovation across various spheres.

“With 249 million cases recorded globally and 608,000 malaria-related deaths, the task of combating this parasite remains monumental. However, with remarkable strides in Holographic Information Transfer technology and our collaboration with Regenesis, we stand poised to meet this challenge head-on. Join our vibrant community of extraordinary individuals as we endeavor to provide universal, affordable healthcare, safeguard the environment, and elevate and harmonize human existence. Together, we possess the power to transform the world, save countless lives, and forge a more sustainable and advanced society.” – said Prof. Andreoli

Referring to the Transcend project, he elaborated on the idea of generating a parliament of life-sized holographic avatars that are exact replicas of selected historical personalities representing all nationalities, cultures, and civilizations. The avatars would be placed in a designated physical area and interact with one another and with guests, elaborating on philosophy, history, and many other areas of human knowledge.  Also, Transcend come together with Heritage to pioneer a new era of technological and cultural integration. This collaboration ensures not only the preservation of cultural heritage but also the accessibility of these treasures through secure, transparent investments.

He emphasized IASC’s commitment to fostering groundbreaking research and development in AI, aiming to revolutionize various industries. These include healthcare, where AI can enhance diagnostics and treatment; finance, where it can improve decision-making and risk management; education, where it can personalize learning experiences; and environmental sustainability, where it can optimize resource use and conservation efforts. Andreoli noted that IASC’s projects are designed to push the boundaries of technology, focusing on both practical applications and theoretical advancements to achieve significant societal impact.
