The report focuses on the socio-political effects and consequences of introducing artificial intelligence technologies into the public and government sphere. First of all, the reflection of these processes and phenomena in modern academic discourse is revealed. The most significant directions and trends in studying the role of artificial intelligent systems in socio-political reality among domestic and foreign researchers have been identified. The problem of algorithmization of modern power is actualized. A conceptualization of the «digital ecumene» as an information system necessary for positioning and protecting the interests and agenda of the state generating it is proposed.
The talk will also outline the possibilities and limitations of reconceptualizing existing explanatory models and theories of policy in the context of digitalization.
