Cyberspace Evolution and AI The International Competition and the Regional Posture In GCC.

We are pleased to release the paper by Luigi Martino - researcher at the Center for Secure Cyber Physical Systems (C2PS) at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi - produced within the framework of the “Digital Geopolitics” project, promoted by Med-Or Foundation, in collaboration with the Center for International and Strategic Studies (CISS) of Luiss Guido Carli, thanks to the support of the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation.

The proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our digital age is a direct consequence of the evolution of cyberspace. In this context, on one hand governments and regulatory bodies are increasingly focused on creating frameworks that address concerns related to AI, such as privacy, surveillance, and ethical decision-making. On the other hand, in the global AI race, states are trying to cover a pivotal role based on a dual capacity: able to face the confrontations inherent in international competition and technological challenges, while simultaneously being able to conceal strategic advancements and intentions to maintain a competitive edge.

This research aims to elucidate the strategic deployments of cyberspace within the complex matrix of global and regional dynamics, emphasizing the challenges and opportunities that arise as AI evolves. Notably, at the regional level, the case study will be focused on two major actors of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, namely the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
