AI National Plans, State Funding and Geopolitical Implications

10:20 am – 10:45 am

How governments and the private sector engage with AI may very well dictate their future economic strength and security posture. While many states are active in AI, only a few have a planned national strategy for employing the technology. This keynote and fireside chat bring together experts from FutureGrasp, an advisory firm founded by the first National Intelligence Officer for Technology (NIO/TECH) with the National Intelligence Council (NIC) in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the United Nations Interregional Crime & Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), and the World Economic Forum (WEF) to provide unique insights into what AI means for the future of geopolitics. Specifically, panelists will address national plans and government investments into AI, and their respective geopolitical implications.


Limited press passes are available to full-time reporters or freelancers working for established print, online, or broadcast news organizations.
