The Pentagon’s former software chief says that the U.S. has already lost the artificial intelligence battle against China. Nick Chaillan, who recently resigned from the Pentagon says that China is already well on its way to global dominance in artificial intelligence (AI) while the U.S. struggles to keep up.

The Hill reports:

“We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it’s already a done deal; it is already over in my opinion,” the Pentagon’s former software chief Nick Chaillan told the Financial Times, adding that some of the U.S.’s cyber defense systems were at “kindergarten level.”

Chaillan announced his resignation last month as an act of protest against the U.S.’s slow paced tech development. Chaillan said America’s failure to aggressively pursue AI capacity was putting the nation at risk, according to Reuters.

In the next decade, western intelligence reports predict China will dominate with many emerging technologies like AI, synthetic biology and genetics, Reuters reported.

Chaillan also attributed the sluggish pace to company’s like Google hesitating to work with the government on AI and ongoing debates about AI ethics in the U.S., while China pushes forward without consideration for the potential ethical consequences.

So Nick Chaillan resigns and now shoots off his mouth about how bad the USA is. Bet he won’t say bad things about the pension that he will receive via the taxpayers!

What a stupid remark! We all know China has been stealing our goverment secrets for years! Senator Dianne Finestein’s driver for 20 years was a spy….imagine that! Thank God we have brave people like Chaillan that tells the truth, no matter how long it takes. I am sure he has put his life in great danger!

Wasn’t there also an issue with China using TIC TOC to recruit for BLM?
How about the new revelation about the billions in illegal donations China gave to our Universities?
Who benefits from that?
Too much anti-American influence from a Communist nation, leading our children down a path of lies and deception.

Do you know why China has won this AI battle? Because Chinese children are disciplined to learn, to go one step further to accomplish their goals!

THE CHINESE EXPECT THEIR CHILDREN TO BE OVER ACHIEVERS. NOT SO AMERICANS.

Most American parents are too busy with their adult toys to monitor their children’s education! So liberal teachers have taught POLITICAL IDEOLOGIES instead of the factors needed to live a successful adult life AND feel the Spark of Intelligence! In other words, American students are no where as intelligent as the Chinese students in Technology!

No wonder the Chinese are leading us in that field! Our students just aren’t SMART enough but basically dumbed down! Whose fault is this? The Parents of our youth hold this responsibility because they didn’t monitor their child’s teachers and what they were teaching their students. Sad for the students, sad for America!
