Kai-Fu Lee: China, Silicon Valley, and the Dual Visions of AI | Town Hall Seattle

The United States has long been the global leader in Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Kai-Fu Lee—one of the world’s most respected experts on AI—reveals that China has suddenly caught up to the US at an astonishingly rapid pace. He joins us with insight from his provocative book AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order to envision China and the US forming a powerful duopoly in AI—one that is based on each nation’s unique and traditional cultural inclinations. Dr. Lee predicts that Chinese and American AI will have a stunning impact on traditional blue-collar industries—and a devastating effect on white-collar professions. He outlines how millions of suddenly displaced workers will need to find new ways to make their lives meaningful, and how government policies will have to deal with the unprecedented inequality between the haves and the have-nots. Join Lee for a sobering prognosis on the future of global advances in AI and the profound changes coming to our world sooner than we think.
