Artificial Intelligence

Sabrina Feng, Joanna Bouckaert, Luna Rohland (World Economic Forum) write that generative artificial intelligence offers organizations enormous potential but also carries risks. Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) will play a critical role in defining the concrete business case for the technology, articulating its risks and challenges, and defining key performance indicators that will drive targeted solutions

Sunny Cheung (The Jamestown Foundation) writes that, on November 24, 2023, DAMO Academy, Alibaba’s research division, unveiled three revolutionary processors based on the open source RISC-V architecture. The Xuantie C920, Xuantie C907 and Xuantie R910 processors promise to accelerate the application of RISC-V technology in diverse industries, from autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence to enterprise hard drives and network communications

Climate Action

1 – Landon Derentz (Atlantic Council) writes that COP28 in Dubai, in addition to the change of pace on fossil fuels, will be remembered for its efforts to promote an inclusive platform to public and private actions that reduce global emissions

3 – Edward Leo Davey (World Resources Institute) writes that there are crucial interconnections between food systems and climate. Food and land use determine a third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Food systems around the world are particularly vulnerable to drought, floods, extreme heat and other growing impacts of climate change. The issue is particularly critical in many developing countries. At COP28, food was placed at the center of climate efforts, with at least six noteworthy results: 159 Countries Signed the COP28 UAE Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture, Resilient Food Systems and Climate Action; food appeared in the Global Stocktake and Global Goal on Adaptation; the Alliance of Champions for Food Systems Transformation was launched; FAO released its Global Roadmap for Sustainable Food Systems; non-state actors committed to act on food systems; more finance was promised for food systems solutions

European Union – China

Tobias Gehrke, Filip Medunic (European Council on Foreign Relations) write that electric vehicles represent a sensitive challenge in relations between the European Union and China. The EU, compared to Beijing, needs a broader strategy that goes beyond tariffs and that strategically uses its interdependencies with other emerging economies and uses security tools to limit critical dependencies

European Union – Ukraine

Experts from the Atlantic Council think tank write about the European Council’s decision to open EU accession negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova (and to grant candidate status to Georgia). At the same time, Hungary has blocked Kiev’s proposed fifty-billion-euro EU aid package as Russia continues its war

Humanitarian Action 

Anna Bjerde, Filippo Grandi (World Economic Forum) write that, with respect to refugee crises, emergency humanitarian responses are not sufficient: a medium-term approach is needed. This involves changing the way we think about refugees and working to integrate them into host communities

Ghulam Omar Qargha, Chandni Chopra, Rachel Dyl, Srinidhi Lakshmanan (Brookings) write that the remnants of British colonialism have profoundly shaped the trajectory of policies and reforms in Indian education. We need to decolonize the Indian education system to ensure equitable access, inclusion and quality education for all Indian children

Near East

David Alibertiand, Daniel Byman (Center for Strategic & International Studies) write that, after Netanyahu’s statements on the need to destroy Hamas, US President Biden agreed that Hamas must be eliminated completely, as did various Republican presidential candidates. Understandably, after the killing of 1,200 people, the Israeli government is at war, with the Israeli people demanding that the threat of Hamas be eliminated once and for all. But what could this mean in practice?
