The geo-politics of artificial intelligence

Alexandra Mousavizadeh

In December 2019, Tortoise launched the Global AI Index, the first index to benchmark nations on their level of investment, innovation and implementation of artificial intelligence. Over the last few years, they’ve expanded the index, and now include 62 countries with deep analysis on the battle for AI domination.

In this talk, Alexandra Mousavizadeh will talk through the key findings from the latest update of the Index - the key breakthroughs in AI-led technology; which nations are leading the way on talent, research and investment; and the geopolitical implications of AI development.
