I wouldn’t talk about other areas or stolen technologies but as far as the AI is concerned, China is apparently way ahead of USA, leave alone Europe that is trailing far behind the US. Chinese are using AI in so many different areas (including finance, social sector, law enforcement, military, aerospace, etc.) Their AI infrastructure and state of the art AI applications are at a much higher level than in the US. You can blame dictatorial rule in China (where no one can raise privacy or other legitimate concerns) for so rapid progress in AI. But that is not the issue being discussed here.tsh tsk... so much self glorification.... using stolen technology... nothing to be proud of.
