Who Stands to Win in the Global Competition for Supremacy in Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence technologies have become a key factor in the success of technology companies and far beyond: the use of AI leads to competitive advantages in all areas of business and human endeavours. Artificial intelligence has long since become a part of our everyday lives. Many countries have adopted their own national artificial intelligence strategies (China, the European Union, and Canada, among others), striving for leadership in this field and gaining a competitive advantage for their economies. Russia is also actively pursuing the development of its own national AI strategy, which will identify the goals, tasks, and approaches to the introduction of AI technologies as well as the regulatory scenarios for certain areas of the economy. The introduction of artificial intelligence technologies will help accelerate economic growth and form the Russian economy of the future, thus making it competitive on the global stage. What is AI? What tasks need to be addressed in the national AI strategy? What is the international experience in AI and what are the priorities of its development? While everyone is working to create strong AI, its potential is often compared to that of nuclear weapons. What stakes does Russia have in this global technological race? How can a balance be struck in terms of state regulation stimulating and restricting the development of AI? What are the key factors in the development of AI that require attention from the state? How can effective collaboration between business, science, and the state be organized for the development of AI?
