Abstract

Global actors and various nations have introduced artificial intelligence (AI) agendas where AI appears as a slippery, politicized phenomenon. In this article, we reveal that AI is mythologized as a benevolent, heroic force shaping nations in accord with political ambitions; that policies communicate utopian beliefs stating AI will transform national concerns favorably; and that technological solutionist expectations present AI as the answer to national challenges.
