Schmidt also said that the U.S. investment in the AI field may eventually weaken the country's military and commercial competitiveness.
China's goal is to become a leader in AI technology by 2030. Schmidt believes China will reach its earliest goal by 2025. He said: "China will catch up before 2020 and will do a better job than us before 2025, leading the AI industry by 2030. Believe me, the Chinese are quite good, and there are indications that China will be in business and Military aspects of the introduction of AI technology. "
Schmidt also cited examples of why China became an AI leader. To many people, China's education system lags behind the United States, but Schmidt said that in the Google programming competition, the Chinese are getting more and more powerful and will once again boast the highest point. Schmidt believes that Americans accept the new software more slowly, and even did not develop AI strategy.
In order to recruit talent, Schmidt suggested that the U.S. government should open its arms and clear the obstacles so as to open the door for foreign talents to work in the United States. Schmidt said: "Some of the top talent in some countries, the United States does not allow people from these countries to enter is really shocking and we hope they can come to work in the United States, hoping they can work for Google, Alphabet. It's crazy to go in. "
Schmidt also stressed that if no action is taken, the military competitiveness of the United States may be jeopardized. He believes that computers can monitor monotonous affairs for a long time and notify humans if abnormalities are found. If humans stand and watch, they often make mistakes and can not compare with computers. He also warned that the military industry could not benefit from AI technology if AI experts were not able to make money. He also said there is a huge demand for the top AI talent in the industry. They graduated from Carnegie Mellon and other universities and got high salaries in their 20s, which cost millions of dollars. Judging from the current market conditions, Their valuations are so high.
