Unlocking AI’s potential in Emerging Markets


Emerging markets around the world are at a pivotal moment in the development of AI. We’re already seeing the progress it is making possible – sparking scientific breakthroughs, helping governments serve people better, and empowering workers and businesses.

At Google, we’re excited about the opportunities AI will create for people and businesses of all sizes, but we know unlocking AI’s economic potential in emerging markets won’t happen automatically. Across emerging markets, industries, government, and society need to continue to work together to deploy a deliberate strategy that ensures everyone can fully benefit from the opportunities of AI.

We can realize the transformative power of AI by adopting an enabling policy agenda that:

  1. Invests in AI infrastructure and innovation
  2. Develops a thoughtful AI workforce strategy
  3. Promotes widespread AI adoption

Since our founding, Google’s mission has been to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. AI can help us deliver on that mission in ways that once seemed impossible, and we’re committed to working with government, industry and civil society to build an AI-supported future that works for everyone.

The AI Opportunity across Emerging Markets

Through our AI Opportunity Agenda initiative, we have identified an enabling agenda that supports the effective deployment of AI in the public and private sector, ensuring it benefits and is useful to as broad a range of people as possible. This initiative includes a framework tailored to emerging markets: our AI Sprinters report provides a roadmap to help countries harness AI to accelerate economic development. Google is committed to advancing these goals in partnership with government and industry.
