Since its inception, digital humanism has included questions of power and geopolitics in its discourse about digital technology and directions for its development. This debate has significantly intensified in the light of geopolitical power shifts and increasing calls for the international regulation of technology powerhouses such as online platforms. The recent progress of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, for example in the field of large language models, has once again intensified the debate. AI is becoming a key infrastructure and enabler of technological innovation. It is often regarded a central driver of innovation and productivity and a key factor for national productivity. This poses the question of international competition or cooperation, especially between leading nations such as the USA and China. And it also poses the question of what is happening in Europe and the rest of the world. Three experts in the field of international AI technology will debate the current state of affairs, the recent push for technological sovereignty, and the geopolitical dimension of approaches to regulation and governance.
