Officials warn against China’s advanced technologies
Officials from the National Counterintelligence and Security Center issued a warning on Friday about China’s ambitions and capabilities within artificial intelligence and advanced military technologies.
The officials warned business executives, academics, and government officials of the risks of accepting Chinese investment in key industries.
Some figures within the Biden administration have called China the most significant strategic threat to the US.
The National Counterintelligence and Security Center’s acting director, Michael Orlando, recently said the US “can’t afford to lose” ground to China in the following areas: artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, quantum computing, semiconductors, and biotechnology.
“Although we’ve been saying this for year after year, people are not digesting this,” Orlando said.
