Updated: Apr 9

It is definitely a Monaco annual reference point in the crucial debate on finance and technology towards a more sustainable future. The 7th edition of the Monaco Women Foru, held at One Monte Carlo congress centre on the 22nd March 2024, marked a further step into a peer-review rendezvous made of inspiring speakers moderated by Cinzia Sgambati Colman, founder of the event, journalist and entrepreneur, and Laurent Marochini, Head of Innovation at Société Générale Securities Services in Luxembourg. This year's meeting, in the presence of H.E. Yvette Lambin Berti, Secretary of State, on behalf of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and of H.E. Brigite Boccone-Pagès, President of the National Council, tackled some of the most topical issues, notably: Artificial Intelligence (AI), New Mobility, Space Sector Security, Quantum Computing, Digital Currencies and Crypto Assets.

The Forum questioned on how to apply the principles of sustainability to technological automation and high-tech 'biodiversity', tailored to local communities, and the growing need to security measures in a widely interconnected world marked by instant communications.

Faustine Fleuret (ADAN) and Émilie Allaert (Luxembourg Blockchain Lab) highlighted the importance of ensuring adequate blockchain instruments to protect transactions in cryptocurrencies in Europe, in the footstep of the incoming cash-less society.

Professor Sergio M. Savaresi and Engineer Mario Marcello, from Milan Politectico, underlined the potential of Artificial Intelligence in developing new sustainable forms of urban mobility.

Petra Scudo and Isabella Cerutti, researchers at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre - JRC, deepened the pivotal role of quantum technology, 5G and new 6G telecommunications to make connections more secure. Domitilla Benigni, expert of cybersecurity, underlined the importance of informing the large public of the risks they run on the network whenever we provide personal data within insecure platforms.

Professor Cordelia Schmid was awarded the 2024 Monte-Carlo Woman of the Year as for her Lifetime Achievement after a 25-year in-depth experience in computing sciences, author of over a hundred technical publications. The use of Artificial Intelligence is involving many professional sectors and it can ethically and sustainably improve living conditions, if properly used. The evening Awarding Ceremony witnessed the special participation of H.S.H. Stéphanie of Monaco and H.E. Giulio Alaimo, Ambassador of Italy to the Principality of Monaco.

As reiterated in the final session "we need to adopt a proactive mindset, focusing on collaboration, ethical considerations, education and socio-economic policies in order to harness the potential of Artificial Intelligence and other advances to improve our society". ***
