Artificial intelligence is emerging as one of the most transformative technologies of our time. It powers autonomous vehicles, enables algorithms to operate, and is being applied in areas from health care and retail to finance and national defense. As AI begins to reshape entire industries and economies, the United States and China have emerged as pioneers at the leading frontier of this technological revolution. These two nations alone are expected to capture the bulk of the $15.7 trillion windfall that AI is projected to add to the global economy by 2030.
On March 12, The Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution hosted a discussion on the potential impact of AI on U.S.-China relations, with an eye toward new developments, opportunities, and risks. Panelists examined where each country stands in its AI developments, how the two nations are cooperating and competing, and what lies ahead.
After the session, speakers answered questions from the audience.
