2023 Global AI Infrastructures Report
A report authored by the AI Strategies team with a foreword from the Stimson Center's David Bray
The 2023 Global AI Infrastructures Report uses computer science techniques to analyze national and sub-national AI policies published by 54 different countries. It’s the most comprehensive analysis to date on national AI policies. It provides important comparisons and contrasts of national and global priorities for the development and deployment of AI. The report analyzes the empirical determinants of dominant strategies for developing AI around the globe and shows where countries are converging and diverging in their approaches to AI. The cross-national and global comparisons are important for a host of important players in AI including policy-makers, governments, businesses, and civil society organizations,
"Collectively we present the most detailed and comprehensive empirical analysis undertaken of national AI infrastructures to date. This analysis provides comparisons and contrasts across 54 national strategies and a granular look at what these strategies contain. We note the priorities that are contained in documents, but our analysis also points out the policy depth for particular countries."
Commentaries on the Report
Dr. David A. Bray is a Distinguished Fellow with the Stimson Center and the Business Executive for National Security (BENS).
“Pundits globally have indicated both excitement and concerns about whether machines may be able to perform work previously thought only performable by humans as well as whether they may be able to produce content and interactions that appear human. It is precisely at this moment that this 2023 Global Artificial Intelligence Infrastructures Report by J.P. Singh, Amarda Shehu, and their doctoral students is so prescient. By bridging together multiple fields, including the best of computer science, economics, political science, and public policy, in a collaborative manner akin to the best work of Herbert Simon – Singh and Shehu have produced a valuable compass reading pointing to where different nations have decided to steer their approaches to AI for the future ahead. Their report presents both rigorous and much needed insights that demystify some of the current fervor around the future AI and societies.” - From the Foreword of the Report

"Examining the intricately structured '2023 Global AI Infrastructures Report', it stands as a pivotal contribution to understanding the evolution and nuances of AI strategies and a comprehensive and in-depth exploration of AI infrastructures on a global scale. Its meticulous structure, blending both qualitative narratives and empirical findings, offers an unparalleled and comprehensive lens through which we can discern the trajectory of dynamic AI developments across nations. I wholeheartedly endorse this report, not only for its depth and rigor but also for its profound relevance in guiding stakeholders through the ever-evolving maze of AI developments and implementations -- policymakers, researchers, industry leaders, CEOs/CxOs organizations, investors and sovereign fund communities, startups and their ecosystems, global summits and much more--in the AI domain."
