SUMMARY

This report on AI by the World Economic Forum analyses global risks - including health risks such as the coronavirus pandemic - to economic stability and social cohesion.

From the health perspective, progress against pandemics is being undermined by vaccine hesitancy and drug resistance, the report says. These burdens are making it very challenging to beat some of humanity's biggest threats. This is more current than ever as it can be seen with the global COVID-19 outbreak. The study explains that as existing health risks resurge and new ones appear, past successes in humanity in overcoming health challenges are no guarantee of future results.

The research also takes a look at the pessimistic economic outlook which is increasing citizens' discontent. However, economic and social stability is essential to face key global risks.

Climate change also deserves a mention as it's striking harder and much faster than what many expected, the document notes. On the other hand, digital fragmentation poses a significant global risk too. Digital technology is bringing huge economic and societal benefits to a good share of the global population, but problems such as unequal access to the internet, the lack of a global technology governance framework and cyber insecurity should be addressed as all pose a global risk.

The paper concludes that there is still margin for stakeholders to tackle these global risks, however, the window of opportunity is getting narrower.
