Artificial Intelligence is gradually integrating into various aspects of everyday human life, from medical diagnosis and early detection ability, especially from infertility to remote surgical operations, from security, face recognition, voice recognition to enhanced security, to the world of entertainment in various aspects and Providing it videogame.
Of course, artificial intelligence is an integral part of the automotive industry that drives itself, and its reliance on internet search engines is inevitable, as well as other areas related to the business world, speculation on stock exchanges and international financial markets, or online shopping. They can not perform their functions today or grow in the future without greater reliance on artificial intelligence.
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers, global GDP will rise by 14 percent due to artificial intelligence, and the introduction of technology in the next decade will increase world GDP by nearly $ 15.7 billion. That is $ 7 trillion, and North America $ 3.7 trillion.
The book "Great Power: China, Silicon Valley and New World Order" Kai-fu Lee, a Chinese businessman and artificial intelligence expert, reveals some features of the future. The book describes the data with new oil so that China is trying to use it as Saudi Arabia managed to use it.
"If the standard on which we rely on when we evaluate how different it is, the United States will remain headed for the next decade," says Kai-fu Lee. "But if we measure the value of this research, its market value, the number of users and the amount of revenue, China is already in the lead.
Many experts believe that the current trade war between China and the United States is only part of a more complex scene involving violent conflict between the two sides in many areas, some of which are public and many are hidden.
The restrictions imposed by Washington on Chinese Huawija are just a part of the heaviest war between the two sides around the one who controls the world of technology, especially artificial intelligence, where the winner of that battle overwhelms the world's leading reward and center of superstition for two centuries. Present and most commonly said.
As China recognizes the importance of artificial intelligence to determine future supersedes, it has given this sphere of knowledge the utmost importance, but is often ambiguous.
"There is strong competition between China and the United States in developing the theory and skills of artificial intelligence," said economist Arthur Gilbert, an expert in the development of artificial intelligence. "Chinese development has reached a milestone in 2017 during the game at GO." China, one of the most complex games in the world, competed with the best player in China with the program designed by Alfabat and lost three games and almost two months after Beijing announced its ambitious plan for building the skills of artificial intelligence, divided into three phases, By 2020 and to make Elections data in this area by 2025 and become the world leader in artificial intelligence by 2030 "
"In order to know the difference between China and the United States, just note that 19 Chinese startups raised about $ 4.9 billion to invest in artificial intelligence in 2017, while in the United States, 155 companies raised $ 4.4 billion for investment in the same area. "
In line with Chinese official plans, government authorities will increase their investment in artificial intelligence by approximately 20 billion dollars by about 20 trillion dollars. With the current White House policy, many experts fear that America will survive the current leadership of this strategic area.
American companies still have their own distinctiveness in the industries associated with artificial intelligence, and innovations continue to come strongly from US territory, but the Chinese model of state care, as well as governmental and private capital wealth for investment in artificial intelligence, can prevail over American supremacy has led to a reduction in funding for scientific and technological research by 15 percent last year and increasingly hostile attitudes towards immigrants and immigrants in the United States. Pushing locomotives to American supremacy, both in space, medicine, or information technology research. However, some artificial intelligence experts believe that too much optimism among Chinese to rank first in the world by 2030. "Economist" Dr. Robert Scott, a software professor at Oxford University, explains that "China is a global force in artificial intelligence, its time schedule seems to be overwhelming by 2030. There are many obstacles: governments do not create innovations by throwing money into investment in artificial intelligence. For some, this view is self-assertion that the United States is far superior to China and a decade seems a short time to achieve an ambitious goal like China's goal, but it does not seem to be above China's potential, especially with the official commitment of the state and the ruling party to mobilize many Resources to achieve this goal.
Beijing has other factors that could qualify it for overcoming Washington over the long term, and China's data collection capacity is higher than US capacity, with less legal and moral constraints in China than in the United States to maximize its benefits.
Washington also does not stop accusing China of stealing Western technological secrets in general, and especially in the United States, even before Donald Trump came to power in the United States, the administration of former President Barack Obama was working to prevent the acquisition of some US technology companies in China , In the various Trump administrations, pressure on allied countries like Germany prevented them from selling some of the best German technology companies in China.
However, experts point to an important development in the Chinese intellectual structure to deal with artificial intelligence and the ways of its development. James Kiir, an expert on developing e-Learning mechanisms, points out that China gradually moves from old methods of absolute dependence on the state in the development process to further integrate the private sector.
"China now has an important advantage in developing the skills of artificial intelligence, working on recruiting the largest private sector companies in China to work within the framework set by the state, and finally ask the three largest Chinese companies – Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent – to be part of the state plan to develop the general structure of artificial intelligence in China so that China currently has what can be described as three weapons to develop its capabilities in this area, the government, the military and the private sector, and even if the United States has private sector companies that are working in the field of intelligence. More artificial than China, the sector is, etc. "China is closely related to government plans more than the US."
