The Ascent of China & Artificial Intelligence

China is behind the United States in Artificial Intelligence—but catching up fast. Predicted to spend $15 billion on AI projects in the coming year, Chinese researchers have the advantage of the government’s monitoring of its population for years, gathering enormous amounts of data that AI platforms can use to improve their learning. Announced official policy is for China to be dominant in AI by 2030. This roundtable will discuss the likely effects in manufacturing, finance, and national security—and how the U.S. should respond.
