- Artificial Intelligence (AI) and 5G will become the most important emerging technologies within the next 10–20 years with the potential to fundamentally alter the global balance of power. They will most probably propel the 4th Industrial Revolution.
- Geopolitical and economic supremacy will be determined by those powers who manage AI and 5G to their advantage. Russia and China are challenging the U.S.-led world order by a new technological competition in economics, military modernization and means of social control that capitalize on the advancements that these technologies provide.
- Germany and the EU are lagging behind in both 5G and AI adaptation. Their global competitiveness will continue to decline unless they invest in EU-based, technology-capable companies that can manage big data and exploit the seemingly limitless opportunities such data offers.
