The Technopolar World: A New Dimension of Geopolitics | Top Risks 2022 | GZERO Media

Kevin Allison, director of geotech at Eurasia Group, is concerned about the rise of very powerful tech companies disrupting centuries of geopolitics led by the nation-state.


The virtual world is in a worse shape than the G-Zero world, since it has not developed the capacity to govern the spaces they created.

Tech companies have created an entirely new dimension of geopolitics, a realm in cyberspace where they are more powerful than governments.

Technopolarity makes governments and Big Tech compete and attempt to litigate who ultimately will have control and sovereignty over cyberspace.

This scramble, in turn, instigates disinformation, fuels US-China competition, and continues to pose problems around privacy and the use of data.

"That is the heart of the risk. It's the heart of the argument.”
