For many Russian students, the academic year started last Friday with tips on planetary domination from President Vladimir Putin. “Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia but for all humankind,” he said, via live video beamed to 16,000 selected schools. “Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.”
“China’s Rise in Artificial Intelligence,” explains that the country is using AI to drive economic progress, and is therefore emerging as a major global contender in the field. Part of the reason for this is because both private industry and the government have identified machine learning and AI as the next major sources of innovation.
"DJI has done everything right," said Chris Anderson, co-founder of 3DR, which had been the No. 2 drone maker but has transitioned into an aerial software company, helping companies precisely capture images and data. "They've innovated. They have globally branded and distributed, which is unusual for a Chinese company."
China's stronghold as the leading BRICS economy could be up for contention by the end of the next decade, according to a new report which suggests that India is set to see a surge in innovation. India's innovation growth rate is expected to rise significantly over the next 15 years, placing it ahead of Russia and close to surpassing China, the study from China's Science Technology Exchange Center said Wednesday.
China said it will encourage more consumption of information technology-related products and services to help promote innovation and support economic growth.
China sees the use of Section 301 as an act of aggression because it allows the American president to act against the Chinese economy without consulting the World Trade Organization (WTO). China has been a member of the organization since 2001. The use of Section 301 fell out of fashion around that time because US leaders didn't see the point of using it anymore as the WTO's framework had more legitimacy. Even allies were complaining about its use.
Following President Donald Trump's recent executive order regarding China’s handling of technology and intellectual property, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued a response imploring the two nations to come to mutually agreeable terms.
The Trump administration formally launched an investigation into Chinese intellectual property theft on Friday in a signal that the departure of Steve Bannon, one of its most prominent economic nationalists, is unlikely to alter its tougher trade line against Beijing.
China has sent an "unbreakable" code from a satellite to the Earth, marking the first time space-to-ground quantum key distribution technology has been realized, state media said on Thursday. China launched the world's first quantum satellite last August, to help establish "hack proof" communications, a development the Pentagon has called a "notable advance".
China criticized President Donald Trump’s order for a possible U.S. trade investigation of Beijing’s technology policies as a violation of global rules and said Tuesday it will “resolutely safeguard” Chinese interests.
