Experts on global security are set to come together to discuss so-called “black swan events” in crunch talks tomorrow.

A black swan event is an unforeseen event that may have catastrophic consequences.

Experts from Germany and the US will discuss this risk in the presence of Russian, Armenian and other delegates at the World Congress on Information Technology tomorrow.

The panel will include national security expert and author Richard Clarke, who manned the White House’s emergency response during the September 11th terror attacks.

Ahead of the critical talks, organisers said: “The time has come to ask: are we doing the kind of hard-nosed vulnerability assessments that are necessary of our increasingly complex and fragile infrastructure systems?

“How do we build fault-tolerant technological and human systems that can withstand or help us better recover from catastrophic failures caused by ‘black swan’ and ‘perfect storm’ events?

“How do we do smart risk management in a world of sudden, unseeable and unforeseeable threats?”

The panel will discuss how the world’s internet and AI-controlled systems will cope in the event of a black swan.

Organisers said: “We take for granted that these technological systems will continue to function without interruption.
