046 - Guest: Rajiv Malhotra, author and historian, part 1
This and all episodes at: https://aiandyou.net/ .
Are the benefits of AI equally distributed across countries? Or is it another tool for agents of globalization and imperialism to tighten their grip and shut out the smaller players on the global stage? Rajiv Malhotra has a new book, Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Power: 5 Battlegrounds, that addresses that issue, and draws attention to how India in particular is collateral damage in the struggle for dominance between AI superpowers.
In this episode, we talk about how Western universalism and Chinese nationalism shape geopolitical structures that AI is now entering into, and how the history and geography of Asia affects them.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.
