Fragmentation

The A.I. ecosystem is fragmented in two ways: infrastructure standards and governance.

The A.I. ecosystem spans hundreds of companies. They are building the network infrastructure, the custom chipsets, the consumer applications, the backend communications systems, the low-power radios in our smart home gadgets…we could go on.

Meanwhile, a large number of policy groups, advocacy organizations and governments are all developing guidelines, norms and standards and policy frameworks hoping to guide the future development of A.I.

As a result, the ecosystem is fragmented in two ways: infrastructure standards and governance.
