China's AI Innovation Ecosystem

September 30, 2019 • 1:00 – 2:30 pm EDT

The CSIS Technology Policy Program invites you to a discussion and release of a new report on the state of China's AI innovation ecosystem. 

Around the world policymakers have recognized the critical importance of AI to economic growth and competitiveness, as well as national power. Few countries have embraced this view as fervently as China. China sees an opportunity to catapult itself into a position of global leadership in the AI age. The world has taken notice. AI has taken center stage in the “technology cold war” between the United States and China, and the “AI race” between them has become a central theme in global debates around the future of emerging technologies. Please join us for an interactive discussion with senior experts on the state of the Chinese AI ecosystem, and how the U.S. should respond to China’s progress in AI. 

This report launch is part of the China Innovation Policy Series, and made possible by support from our partners: Microsoft Corporation, the General Electric Foundation, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Semiconductor Industry Association, and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).
