Nina Schick will discuss how Western liberal democracies will be surpassed by Chinese techno-authoritarianism in the coming age of AI superpowers.
Liberal democracies as a the leading global system of governance will diminish in the next two decades. Technological advances are eroding the foundations on which liberal democracies rely to survive and thrive.
These developments herald the end of the US-led liberal international order, which emerged victorious at the end of the Cold War.
In its place a new unipolar geopolitical order led by China will emerge in a system of techno-authoritarian AI superpower.
China will not just be another player - but the biggest player the world has ever seen - fuelled by an artificial intelligence revolution powered by data.
This new phase of geopolitics will lead us to an hitherto unimagined future. Although dystopian from a Western perspective, it may be the only way that the planet is able to fend off existential technological and environmental threats.
This talks will primarily be aimed at helping audiences to understanding the coming geopolitical revolution in the age of AI.
