Robotics & Geopolitics: AI Strategy Must Hinge on Local Strengths, Markets

A nation or region’s artificial intelligence strategy is viewed as essential to future economic and geopolitical competitiveness, but we can see a number of approaches. Making sure that machine learning is localized, centralized hubs, and targeting niche markets, are among them. How are China, the U.S., and other nations developing — or not pursuing — an AI strategy?

Robotics Business Review has partnered with Abishur Prakash at Center for Innovating the Future to provide its readers with cutting-edge insights into recent developments in international robotics, AI, and unmanned systems. Are you ready to be updated?

Regular people, not programmers teach robots

Robotics development: Nvidia’s robotics research lab has developed neural networks that allow robots to learn new skills by watching and monitoring human behavior in an environment like a factory.

The power of this innovation is that it could allow robots to move beyond repeating actions. They could start to adapt to changing conditions, such as if a robot or a human drops a box on the factory floor. In addition, robots could be personalized by changing their behavior based on what they observe their owners doing.

Geopolitical significance: One of the big challenges for organizations that want to use advanced automation is the time it takes to train AI. The way a bank wants AI to behave is very different from how a coffee shop wants a robot to behave.

The World's First Book On The Geopolitics Of Artificial Intelligence

For the past 70 years, geopolitics has been defined by oil, natural gas, defense and much more. Now, geopolitics is being defined by technology. And, AI is the most important. Nations of all shapes and sizes are looking to AI to give them an economic and geopolitical edge. Everything from ethics to bias to warfare will be defined and redefined by the geopolitics of AI. See why nations are competing over a technology that nobody fully understands but everybody wants.
