BABL AI’s Chief Ethics Officer participated in the 23rd Annual McCain Conference, sponsored by the United States Naval Institute (USNI). Dr. Jovana Davidovic attended the prestigious event that took place between April 18-19 at the Jack C. Taylor Conference Center (JCTCC) in Annapolis, Maryland. This prestigious event, made possible through the generosity of Mrs. Cindy McCain and Michael Bloomberg, commemorates the legacy of Senator John McCain (USNA Class of 1958). The conference serves as a platform for distinguished academics, military officers, faculty, and Midshipmen to delve into pressing ethical topics pertinent to military operations.


This year’s conference, themed “Liberal Democracy – Challenges, Critics, Solutions,” featured enlightening discussions on the complexities facing liberal democracies worldwide. Scheduled panel sessions and keynote addresses tackled issues ranging from economic populism to the ethical implications of emerging technologies. Dr. Davidovic was joined on stage by Dr. Cass Sunstein, as the two held a technology panel where they discussed democracy in the digital age, AI, regulation and other topics.
