Abstract

This brief think-piece is intended to stimulate interest in knowing more about AI dependencies. The silent partner in digital transformation, and the fourth tech revolution is levels of dependency not previously experienced among all strata and locations of society. True it is that the discovery and operationalization of electricity has generated massive dependencies that are only now being critically valued and gauged as political unrest, resource depletion and a disrupted global economic order have shattered our once peaceful expectations for powering our daily existence. Without power, digital dependencies would be more keenly revealed as they become measured against critical social utility rather than cultures of convenience. That said, the information age and blankets of internet communication networks have meant that this epoch of globalization sees time and temporal space vanish , replaced by a myriad of modern mechanical and data-driven dependencies that keep us alive, fed, on the move and above all else conveniently and inextricably interlinked.

Keywords: dependencies
