Any US-China deal on AI can only help Beijing and hurt America, experts warn

Feb 15, 2024 | Political News

The U.S.-China dynamic has left Washington on the back foot in any effort to hash out an artificial intelligence deal with Beijing, even after Chinese officials indicated their willingness for talks. 

“Whatever China wants is almost certainly not in the interest of either the United States or the international community,” Gordon Chang, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute and an expert on China, wrote in an analysis on the issue. 

“The risk is that, in another unenforceable agreement, the United States will forego employing critical advantages that AI affords in targeting conventional munitions,” Chang argued.

The U.S. and China lead the global chase for AI development, with the U.S. possessing the most advanced chips used to train AI and providing a clear advantage over its rivals, according to Axios.
