The geopolitics of: AI

General Politics

Welcome back to 'The Geopolitics of", our miniseries exploring the geopolitical questions that will define the future of international relations.

On today's episode, International Policy Practice Director Jon Garvie is joined by Kay Firth-Butterfield, Head of Artificial Intelligence and a Member of the Executive Committee at the World Economic Forum. Kay is one of the world's foremost experts on the governance of artificial intelligence---and a fellow podcaster.

They talk through the complicated questions around AI ethics, the difficult problems policymakers face from AI disruption, and how these issues are becoming yet another point of tension in US-China relations.
