AI Governance in the Digital Age: The Great Struggle for Control and Regulation

The debate on policing AI technology is just a small part of a much larger ongoing political struggle worldwide to control the rules that govern this era-defining technology. This digital Great Game is far from over, and the winner will have significant influence over how AI is developed and used.

During the recent debate attended by prominent figures such as former British deputy prime minister Clegg, Washington, and European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, the challenges of regulating AI in a constantly evolving world were discussed. Amba Kak from the AI Now Institute described it as an alternate reality. By the end of the meeting, 29 countries signed a voluntary agreement to reduce risks associated with AI technologies like OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Policymakers anticipate finalizing many new AI standards by the end of 2024. POLITICO interviewed numerous politicians, policymakers, and tech executives to gain insights into the dynamics at play as the world navigates this disruptive technology. It feels like we are witnessing 19th-century European powers dividing the world again.
