'America is already overtaken by China in the AI development competition,' Google former CEOs warn

A comprehensive final that the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI), chaired by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt , recommends a roadmap to secure America's dominance in AI. We have released a report. In this report, NSCAI points out that AI development in the United States and AI response by government organizations have been delayed.

Eric Schmidt's National Security Commission on AI issues China warning

NSCAI includes Google co-founder and former CEO Eric Schmidt, Amazon's next CEO Andy Jassy , Oracle CEO Safra Catz, and Microsoft's chief scientific officer Eric Holwitz. , Google Cloud AI CEO Andrew Moore , and other 15 experts. Since the 2019 (PDF file) Defense Act was passed in the United States, NSCAI has been studying advances in AI, machine learning and related technologies for almost two years.

NSCAI told President Joe Biden, 'We will more than double the R & D cost of AI and increase it to 32 billion dollars a year by 2026.' 'A broader AI policy 'Establishment of a new organization to manage' 'Relaxation of migration restrictions for talented AI experts' 'Establishment of an educational institution for the purpose of training the digital skills of civil servants' 'Active adoption of new technology in the American intelligence agency' ..

In a report, NSCAI also noted that 'America's technological superiority could be lost within the next decade,' and 'calls the world to ban AI-controlled autonomous weapons.' 'It should be stopped.' 'Even if we conclude a treaty, it is unlikely that China and Russia will comply.'

China is reportedly aiming to be at the top of AI technology by 2030. Mr. Schmidt said, 'Even if the United States is ahead now, I am concerned that China will catch up soon.' 'AI technology development with China, which is making a large investment in AI technology development. Competition will intensify. '

More than 2,500 professionals and business people, including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, DeepMind co-founder Demis Hassabis, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, have said about using AI for autonomous weapons. It was reported that he had signed a pledge that he should not develop autonomous killing weapons.

Schmidt's recommendation goes against the trend that 'the development of autonomous weapons using AI should be prohibited.' Professor Toby Walsh, a professor of AI at the University of Sydney, told CNBC, an overseas news media, 'The crisis is closer and more serious. Autonomous weapons must be regulated.'

German AI researcher Samim Wagner said, 'Everyone knows that the adoption of AI weapons is a brutal madness, but think tanks of the US and Chinese governments have said that the development of AI weapons is'advanced. We continue to insist that it is necessary. Humanity should truly discuss the peaceful use of AI, but Pentagon operatives and billionaires like Eric Schmidt think that's exactly what it is. I don't. '

On the other hand, NSCAI is cautious about face recognition technology. 'We are concerned about the Chinese government experimenting with surveillance technology, and we are pleased that American companies are cautious about developing facial recognition software,' said Moore, a member of NSCAI. I am.

In addition, NSCAI has called for increased self-sufficiency in computer chips and warned of the dangers of relying on Taiwan's semiconductor foundry TSMC. 'Microelectronics is a necessity for all AI, but the world's most sophisticated chips are no longer manufactured in the United States. The United States needs to reassess the resilience and security implications of its semiconductor supply chain. There is. '
