Can China’s People’s Republic defeat America’s the United States in AI?

The race for artificial intelligence has kept watching the world raptly. Could China’s People’s Republic defeat America’s the United States? If so, what are the consequences? In his novel AI Superpowers, Kai-fu Lee, a former executive at Apple, SGI, Microsoft, and Google, argues that China’s abundant data, enthusiastic entrepreneurs, well-educated and trained scientists, and a supportive policy environment would outperform America in terms of AI growth. But the dispute needs to be reframed: it’s not a U.S.-China conflict, but it seems to be a tug-of-war between seven technology companies— Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft on the U.S. team, and on the Chinese side, Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent. Such seven companies were portrayed by Kai-fu Lee as the leaders of the movement.

Dive further into this game and the key players become clearer: not even among the above-mentioned seven firms. It’s just a two-giant battle that pioneers consumer goods access: Amazon and Alibaba. Finally, the combination of consumer data from these two firms and extremely precise supply chains not only influenced retail but also mastered the so-called third level of AI called perception. In AI Superpowers, Kai-fu Lee defines four levels of AI: Internet as a recommendation agent (e.g., Gmail offering feedback when drafting emails) Business applications, especially with big data perception, in particular, facial recognition and speech recognition Autonomous software, such as self-driving cars

The third layer of AI reflects the increasing sophistication and use of AI. Alexa just comes to mind when talking about how these two firms are enhancing “perception,” but can Amazon take it further? How do you intend to catch up with Alibaba? Or is it already going forward?
