The humanoid robot Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen, will arrive in Dubai on March 8 to participate in the largest smart conference for internal auditors.

The 20th Annual Regional Audit Conference (ARAC) will be held from March 7-9, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Sophia became the world’s first robot citizen after Saudi Arabia granted her citizenship in October 2017, and will conduct an interactive session on the future of artificial intelligence on the second day of the annual regional conference on internal auditing, official news agency WAM reported.

The conference, which is sponsored by the likes as KPMG, Bee’ah, Protiviti and PricewaterhouseCoopers, provides an opportunity for attendees to receive more than 22 CPE credits, in order to enhance their professional development process.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from over 40 international speakers, leaders and authors who will share their experiences, best practices, trends and case studies, through more than 44 sessions.

Some high-profile speakers include Terry Cutler, CEO, Cyology Labs Canada and Ethical Hacker, who will conduct a session on “Insider Secrets to How hackers are getting in, and why“, while Jordan Belfort, American author, The Real Wolf of Wall Street, motivational speaker and former stockbroker, will talk on “Leveraging Risk to Elevate your Business and Life”.

Henrik Stein, former president of European Confederation of the Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA), will address the participants on “Continuation and Innovation: A Challenge to evolve Internal Audit in a strongly regulated environment”.

Panel discussions and workshops will cover topics such as digital, cyber security and resilience trends; and tech talk: reimagining digitisation of the information security world, among others.
