China won the battle of artificial intelligence against the United States


The Times report quoted software chief Nicholas Chaelan as saying he spent most of his three years at the Pentagon "fixing cloud core stuff and laptops" rather than driving innovation.

The former Pentagon chief of software told the Financial Times that China has won the battle of artificial intelligence with the United States and is heading for global dominance due to its technological advancement, Reuters reported on Monday .

The failure to respond puts the United States at risk, said Nicholas Chailan, the Pentagon's first software official who resigned in protest at the slow pace of technological transformation in the US military.

"We don't have a competitive fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Now, it's already (a case closed)"; "It has already ended, in my opinion," he told the newspaper.

He said China is bent on dominating the world's future, controlling everything from media narratives to geopolitics.

Chaillan blamed slow innovation, the reluctance of US companies like Google to work with the state on artificial intelligence and intense ethical debates about the technology.

Reuters noted that Google was not immediately available for comment outside of business hours.

"Chinese companies are obligated to work with their government and make (huge investments) in artificial intelligence without regard to morality," Chailan said, adding that US cyber defenses in some government departments were at the (kindergarten) level.

The US National Security Committee has warned that China could overtake the United States as the dominant superpower in the field of artificial intelligence within a decade

Chailan announced his resignation at the beginning of last September, saying that military officials had been repeatedly tasked with cyber initiatives for which they lacked experience.

An Air Force Department spokesman said Frank Kendall, the secretary of the US Air Force, discussed with Chaylan his recommendations for developing the department's future programs after his resignation and thanked him for his contributions, the Financial Times reported.

Warning
Hugh Tomlinson wrote in a report in The Times, “The US National Security Committee warned this year (2021) that China could overtake the United States as the dominant superpower in the field of artificial intelligence within a decade. And he admitted Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said last July that the United States urgently needed to develop responsible AI as a priority, with an additional $1.5 billion allocated to AI in the coming years.

The Times report quoted Chaelan as saying that he spent most of his three years at the Pentagon "fixing cloud core stuff and laptops" rather than driving innovation. He added that there was "good reason to be angry" at the slow pace of US artificial intelligence and electronic development.
