"The Power and Perils of the 'Artificial Hand': Considering AI Through the Ideas of Adam Smith"
Gita Gopinath, First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, will present the first lecture in this series which will touch on what Adam Smith would say about the state of globalisation.
This will then be followed by a fireside conversation with Kirsty Wark, BBC Newsnight presenter.
Prior to taking up the role of First Deputy Managing Director Gita Gopinath held the post of Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund and was a Professor at Harvard University Economics Department.
She was also named amongst the Financial Times most influential women in 2021.
About the Hunter Foundation Lecture Series
The Hunter Foundation Lecture Series form part of the University of Glasgow's Adam Smith Tercentenary celebrations which mark the 300th anniversary of one of our most famous alumni, whose pioneering work has had a lasting impact on the way the world considers economics, politics and society.
Sir Tom Hunter, entrepreneur, philanthropist and founder of the Hunter Foundation has noted:
"As the founding father of modern economics, it's important we celebrate Smith’s role in the Enlightenment and learn from his legacy. It is our hope in supporting the University of Glasgow’s Adam Smith 300 lecture series, that we as a nation reassess business creation and its role in supporting the public services we all rely upon. Without the economic growth business delivers, those services, as we are already seeing, diminish and those least well off in our society suffer the most."
