The United States is only one of many players in artificial intelligence (AI), and many nations are taking steps to ensure their competitiveness in AI. Increasingly, nations worldwide are mobilizing policy support for advances in AI technologies and applications, recognizing its importance to future economic dynamism and military capabilities. Although some experts predict the emergence of a “duopoly” between the U.S. and China as AI superpowers, there will be opportunities for a range of contenders, including small and middle powers, to take advantage of AI to enhance their national power. At the same time, developing and integrating AI into military affairs, particularly for small states, poses significant challenges – AI is not be just about the technology itself, but about how military organisations manage the technology.
