- According to CNBC News, the National Security Commission on A.I. on Monday, March 1, released a 756-page assessment that warned about the possibility of China taking over the global stage as “the world’s A.I. superpower'” which could subsequently lead to serious implications for the U.S. military that the government needs to consider addressing.
- Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, and the group’s vice-chair Bob Work, insist the United States must prepare to face a difficult reality in the A.I. era. “America is not prepared to defend or compete in the AI era,” wrote Schmidt. “This is the tough reality we must face.”
- According to Schmidt and Work, artificial intelligence systems will likely be used for the “pursuit of power” and “will not stay in the domain of superpowers or the realm of science fiction.” They wrote, “We will not be able to defend against AI-enabled threats without ubiquitous AI capabilities and new warfighting paradigms.”
