Capital flows and power structures in the AI landscape:’s perspective

The AI world is experiencing an increasing dominance of Big Tech, recognizable by the monumental investments that corporations like Google and Amazon are making in AI companies like Anthropic. This development signals a shift towards market dominance.

There is concern about the financial dependence on AI start-ups and the overpowering position of Big Tech. AI-based systems stand in contrast to SaaS models, which only incur minor additional user costs. AI systems, on the other hand, generate considerable costs with every interaction due to the necessary data analysis and algorithm processing. This forces AI startups to rely on large investments to fund innovations with unclear ROI, increasing dependence on tech giants and cloud service providers.

Infrastructure and cloud service providers play a crucial role in the AI investment landscape, with Nvidia standing out in particular. As a leading player in hardware and software, Nvidia creates a cyclical flow of investment: startups supported by Nvidia often invest in their GPUs, which further drives the company’s growth.

The centralized accumulation of capital by a few large players requires increased attention and responsibility, especially in sensitive decision-making areas. Decision-makers in companies need to be aware of the far-reaching effects of these powerful technologies.

Despite the limitations in ML/DL models, which at best offer an approximation of reality, models such as ChatGPT have convinced many people of their “reality”, in some cases even replacing human thought processes and moral judgment, mainly through excessive automation and data dependency.

The methods of data collection are often questionable as they are not verified or confirmed by the data subjects, partly due to the different data protection regulations in different countries. Companies often use these laws to cover up their mistakes and refuse to take responsibility, especially in sensitive areas such as the healthcare and financial sectors.

The inability of governments to create effective legal frameworks without burdening companies willing to innovate is another problem. Despite the existence of antitrust laws, the technology ecosystem often seems to follow its own rules without adequate oversight.

Flawed data protection laws and resulting misinterpretations often lead to the majority of people being disadvantaged due to poor data quality and inaccurate results.
