This week, Zen Soo looks at how China and the US compete for technological supremacy in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), and how this is affected by the US-China trade war and bans on Huawei and ZTE.
She speaks with one of the pre-eminent authorities on the status of China’s AI development: Gregory Allen from the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). Allen is a fellow for CNAS' Technology and National Security Program and recently wrote a research report titled “Understanding China's AI Strategy”.
