Abstract:The overall aim of this research is to answer the main research question: In what ways does the EU envision the prospects of Artificial Intelligence in its green growth discourse? This is done by means of a critical discourse analysis. The green growth discourse generated and circulated by the EU and relevant stakeholders with a push for innovation leaves space for the problematic of being technological solutionist and digital utopian. Therefore, this critical discourse analysis aims at uncovering the myths behind the leading concepts presented as green growth, technological solutionism and digital utopianism. To do so, the embeddedness of AI in this discourse is investigated in terms of the expectations attached to it, how it is supposed to function and what are the future scenarios that are envisioned to be achieved by AI.
