AI and Misinformation at the Top of the World Economic Forum Global Risk Report 2024

In this week's episode, Ricardo addresses the Global Risk Report recently released by the World Economic Forum. He emphasizes and validates some clear risks, such as climate change and extreme weather, as well as long-term risks, noting that although they are not new, they are reaching a critical point of no return.

Beyond the immediate risks, there is something he talks and posts about almost every week: the combination of AI and social polarization that brings enormous pressure to the truth, signaling the possibility that, soon, the distinction between what is true and what is not may become increasingly difficult to discern.

Ricardo also highlights a surprising omission in the report: the absence of the pandemic among the risks discussed. Despite being at the top of the global agenda in recent years, it is now not even among the top ten. This fact, unfortunately, shows the human tendency towards short-term memory.
