Foreseeing the Future AI-powered World

The world of Artificial Intelligence (AI), notably in its Deep Learning component, is already here. It impacts everything, even though the extent and depth of its impacts are still hardly perceptible.

With this ongoing in-depth series, we seek to understand and envision how a future AI-powered world will look and what it will mean to its actors. We explore the AI-world’s drivers, forces and stakes, from Big Data to sensors through High Performance Computing Power, including the Quantum Supremacy Race.

We notably look at the AI revolutionary potential impacting three major emerging functions within polities: AI management, AI governance and AI-power status, when AI is most likely to be part of the relative power ranking for world actors.

Start with When Artificial Intelligence will Power Geopolitics – Presenting AI, where we explain what is AI and Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning – The New AI-World in the Making, where we explain further AI, before to deep dive into the other articles and reports.

On 12 October, Chinese Huawei launched its new Quantum Computing Simulation HiQ Cloud Service Platform (Press Release).  On 13 September 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the “H.R. 6227: National Quantum Initiative Act” with $1.275 billion budget from 2019 to 2023 on quantum research. The Chinese government yearly investment in quantum science is estimated to$ 244 million (CRS, … Continue reading The Coming Quantum Computing Disruption, Artificial Intelligence and Geopolitics (1)

This article focuses on the race to exascale computing and its multi-dimensional political and geopolitical impacts, a crucial response major actors are implementing in terms of High Performance Computing (HPC) power, notably for the development of their artificial intelligence (AI) systems.  It thus ends for now our series on HPC as driver of and stake for AI, … Continue reading Winning the Race to Exascale Computing – Artificial Intelligence, Computing Power and Geopolitics (4)

In this article, we shall focus on the strategic meaning of the rapid integration of artificial intelligence (AI) by the Chinese military, at the level of command and management of warfare operations.
In the first article of this series, we saw how the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is working to integrate AI to numerous weapons systems thus developing its “AI (fire) power”. … Continue reading Militarizing Artificial Intelligence – China (2)

2018 could be the year when the U.S. takes back the lead over China with the most powerful supercomputer in the world. It could be the year when the AI-power war over computing power started.
2017 is the year when Artificial Intelligence started creating Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is the year when China overtook the US in the total number of ranked supercomputers and in aggregate computing performance.Continue reading When AI Started Creating AI – Artificial Intelligence and Computing Power
