In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence (AI), the quest for technological advancement is paralleled by a critical battle for influence over AI's global rulebook. As nations race to harness the transformative potential of AI, powerful actors are vying to shape its governance and regulation in ways that align with their strategic interests. This tug-of-war is not only shaping the ethical and operational boundaries of AI, but also underscoring the geopolitical implications of who gets to set the rules in this new digital frontier.
As Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies become increasingly integrated into different sectors of society, the need for robust governance mechanisms becomes paramount. While multistakeholder governance of the Internet brought together diverse actors to manage the Internet's resources, rulebook, and technical standards, AI governance represents a radically different evolution and in a dramatically different geopolitical context. It is characterized by disparate regulatory approaches, standards, and practices adopted by different stakeholders, often with conflicting interests and priorities, and with an appetite for ethics rather than governance.
Join us as we unpack the complexities of AI governance and explore the power play that will determine the future trajectory of AI's global impact.
