Overall, the disciplined debates and conversations addressed how technological innovation can change the course for humanity within the next half decade and the foreseeable future.

What’s more, in this safe paradise away from everything else, we pushed the edge of what is currently spoken about in the AI field. In Richard Branson’s own words,
“Some of the most world-changing conversations nowadays happen while sitting in the sand.”
In the words of Bryan Talebi, Ahura AI’s Co-Founder and CEO,
“We are bold in our quest to develop AI to foster learning culture and community with lasting impact. Our vision is to create a new sector for lasting knowledge, to better understand the way we learn, and to provide a powerful AI platform for all humanity to thrive.”
