The rapid developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) present a multitude of challenges that demand regulatory attention. And if the U.S. and China can’t reconcile some of their differences on AI regulation and safety, the whole world will suffer.

New investment restrictions from the Biden administration will serve to stimulate China’s research and development efforts. In the long run, the measures could also weaken the United States’ dominant position in the global high-tech industry by stimulating substitution in the industrial chain.

An executive order issued recently by U.S. President Joe Biden to restrict outbound investment will have many unintended negative consequences. Other countries will need a healthy dose of vigilance regarding America’s duality and changeability, as the U.S. moral position is undermined.

As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more sophisticated, its impact on international stability also increases. China and the U.S. should draw from historical arms treaties and adopt a cooperative approach to regulating AI to prevent conflict and promote global stability.

In his now-classic 2018 book, AI Superpowers, Kai-Fu Lee threw down the gauntlet in arguing that China poses a growing technological threat to the United States. When Lee gave a guest lecture to my “Next China” class at Yale in late 2019, my students were enthralled by his provocative case: America was about to lose its first-mover advantage in discovery (the expertise of AI’s algorithms) to China’s advantage in implementation (big-data-driven applications).

New international institutions, mechanisms and laws — as well as the reform and improvement of existing ones — should no longer be dominated by the West. The shaping of a new global order should be done through multilateral cooperation.

Artificial intelligence may transform human society for the better by releasing people from repetitive work and improving the speed of innovation. But no one is immune from its potential negative social impacts and security threats. Some worry about becoming its victims.

While the United States is focused on competition with China, when it comes to artificial intelligence cooperation is the better choice. In applications such as retail, finance, manufacturing, self-driving cars and telemedicine, the two countries can both win.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became the highest ranking American government official to visit Taiwan in decades - raising the temperature of the already-tense Taiwan Strait. The current situation reflects not only a history of conflict, but also China’s concerns about U.S. influence in its backyard.

Recent events in the Taiwan Strait have led to an outpouring of international concern regarding potential war between the United States and China. AI technology advancements, which these two superpowers are leaders in research, resources, and patents, would mean that the world has yet to see the most AI-driven conflict in history.
