To expand a bit on that thought: the decisions made by the guys who run the big search engine companies, the big social media hangouts and so on have so much influence on US elections one could argue they are in charge, but they only select political leaders.  In our world today, we realize it is a huge arms race for AI.  The first guy to create and control AI owns the world.
