This consortium provides a thinking space for social science research – across the Eurasian continent and beyond – in order to gather researchers, experts, and practitioners in the expanding field of AI aiming to channel their analysis regularly to policy makers. It aims at fostering and stimulating interdisciplinary collaborations as well as public conversations about the potential and the limit of AI. To fill the knowledge and research gap, systematic comparisons among different political systems, cultures, and regulatory environments are needed to understand better the transformative social and political effects of AI technologies: the co-evolving of new kinds of “social” relations, new forms of innovation and authority around the world. The co-evolving of new and different social relations represents as well a deep political process from global dimension.
