Social media and tech companies based in the US have developed what he calls "Weapons of Mass Disruption" — Eurasia Group's #3 geopolitical risk for 2023.
And guess who wrote the title? An artificial intelligence bot from ChatGPT.
To be sure, Bremmer adds, AI can be great for many things. But "no one talks about the flip side, the dangers of these disruptive technologies, until the crisis hits, until it's too late."
