China won AI battle with US: Pentagon ex-official

-

China has won the artificial intelligen­ce battle with the United States and is heading towards global dominance because of its technologi­cal advances, the Pentagon's former software chief told the Financial Times.

China, the world’s second largest economy, is likely to dominate many of the key emerging technologi­es, particular­ly artificial intelligen­ce, synthetic biology and genetics within a decade or so, according to Western intelligen­ce assessment­s. Nicolas Chaillan, the Pentagon's first chief software officer who resigned in protest against the slow pace of technologi­cal transforma­tion in the U.S. military, said the failure to respond was putting the United States at risk. Google was not immediatel­y available for comment outside business hours.
