In 2013, Abishur coined the expression “Next Geopolitics,” launching the modern day field around geopolitics of technology. Today, he is the leading authority on how new and emerging technologies, like artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, will transform geopolitics.
Abishur is a geopolitical futurist at Center for Innovating the Future (CIF), where he helps companies succeed in tech-driven geopolitics.
An original, millennial thinker, Abishur has authored four books, including Next Geopolitics: Volume 1 & 2, Go.AI (Geopolitics of Artificial Intelligence) and The Age of Killer Robots. His books are available in English and Hungarian. His thoughts have also been published in leading media outlets like Scientific American, Forbes and BBC, among others.

As nations compete around AI, they are part of the biggest battle for global power since World War II. Except, this battle is not about land or resources. It is about data, defense and economy. And, ultimately, how these variables give a nation more control over the world.
This is not a cold war. It is an algorithmic war.
Take South Korea. In an effort to replace Chinese labor with a domestic alternative, the government in Seoul asked Samsung to start manufacturing robots last October. The shift would allow the country to grow more independently and attract new investment.
But China needs to keep manufacturing at home. It could retaliate against South Korea (and other countries with similar initiatives) by turning to its most powerful tool—access to its market.
“China is betting on AI and investing in AI and deploying AI on a scale no other country is doing,” says Abishur Prakash, a futurist and author of books about the effect of artificial intelligence (AI) on geopolitics.
“What the Trump administration is doing is a sign… the US knows that its geopolitical power will be redefined and reconfigured by this era,” said Mr Prakash, who works at the Toronto-based Center for Innovating the Future.
