Renowned technology policy expert Pablo Chavez, affiliated with the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), underscores the necessity for each nation to assert sovereignty over AI. 

He emphasizes that harnessing AI’s economic potential while safeguarding national interests is imperative. Indeed, AI has become the modern-day equivalent of gold or oil, as articulated by Prof. Ahmed Banafa of San Jose State University’s College of Engineering.
