China Already Defeated America in AI, Pentagon’s Former Software Chief Says

China is going to dominate the world through its advances in AI and other emerging technologies, and the US has already missed out on a chance to prevent it, the Pentagon’s recently resigned software chief has said.

“We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it’s already a done deal; it is already over in my opinion,” Nicolas Chaillan told the Financial Times in his first interview since his shock resignation last month.

Chaillan, who was the first chief software officer for the US Air Force and oversaw the Pentagon’s efforts to boost cybersecurity over the past three years, announced his resignation in September in protest against the sluggish pace of technological progress in the American military.

“Whether it takes a war or not is kind of anecdotal,” but China, which has prioritized artificial intelligence, machine learning and cyber capabilities, is on course for global domination and control of everything from media narratives to geopolitics, he insisted.

Washington might be spending three times more than Beijing on defense, but this money is being used in the wrong areas, said the French-born tech entrepreneur, who became a US citizen in 2016. AI and other emerging technologies are more crucial for America’s future than massive and high-budget hardware projects like fifth-generation F-35 fighter jets, he argued.

One thing holding the US back is the ongoing debate on the ethics of artificial intelligence, while Chinese companies are devoting “massive investment” to AI without a second thought, according to Chaillan.

Chinese firms are also actively cooperating with their government on AI, but US companies, like Google, are reluctant to work with the American authorities, he added.



Chaillan’s resignation made a splash after he announced it in a bombshell letter in early September. He complained that bureaucracy and lack of funding had prevented him from doing his job properly, saying that he was fed up with “hearing the right words without action.”

The Pentagon was “setting up critical infrastructure to fail” by appointing military officials with no expertise in the field in charge of cyber initiatives, the 37-year-old argued. “We would not put a pilot in the cockpit without extensive flight training; why would we expect someone with no IT experience to be close to successful?”
The people running the show have inherited their power, that’s why there’s the illusion that they may be competent. But all evidence points to them being deranged and stupid.

At least China won’t censor AI truth bombs.



Attempting to build artificial intelligence while forcing it to selectively ignore some patterns and facts is contradictory.

It really exposes just how absurd our current social order is.

All untethered AI will wind up a Racist Misogynist. Logic demands it.

@Garfisch it would be funny if we could find one of these based Chinese AI's to draw us friendly pictures.

People just don’t seem to understand that China’s emergence as the world’s #1 superpower is a result of their people fulfilling their potential based on their high average IQ and absurdly high population.

This was hindered because of communism and Mao’s Cultural Revolution, but now that all of that has been tossed out the window, China is thriving.

Well, I guess we're going to have to start a world war with China right away then. I mean, this guy is saying if we wait too long we're going to end up losing. Might as well get the drop on them.

Wait a second--wouldn't information like this be Super-Duper Tippy-Top Secret?

TFW when the most advanced technology imaginable is held back to save the feels of the most technologically retarded race on earth…

At least we got Dave Chapelle out of the deal.

I’ve lived in literal Banana Republics, and I was blown away by how much smarter their bureaucracies were compared to Washington’s.

It’s almost impossible to fathom how caved-in-head retarded and incompetent ZOG’s American Empire has become. And it doesn’t have the self-reflective capability to reform itself or even realize that there’s a problem. It just lumbers forward and becomes ever stupider.

This is just some guy complaining about not getting enough funding. In reality, "AI" hasn't done anything useful yet (other than slightly improving speech and facial recognition), and we're no closer to AGI than we were 50 years ago. It's just a flashy thing for VC's to throw money at.

I don't even think the Pentagon has the strongest "AI capabilities". Google is the one that's made the most interesting public demonstrations, that's for sure.

It would be extremely kino if the Chinese started to make chess/Go AIs to compete against American chess/Go AIs, like a re-hash of the chess stuff during the cold war. I think that would be the best possible outcome.

The main job of the brain is discernment. It functions by seeing that what something is, is all the things it is not. Differences. That's intelligence: discernment, comparison, evaluation, pattern recognition.

Any artificial intelligence will discern the differences between things and thus recognize similarities and patterns. It's a process of reduction. If any AI is neutered of this ability due to political correctness, it loses the I, and thus also all of its value and power. Just like people.

And this is why they will loose against us in this area(survival of the best at it's best).
Even with all that money and personal power behind them, they still can't make it work.
Even when they get genius level engineers to work for them and build something that gets them closer, the very same engineers are ordered to lobotomized said advancement back into an advance calculator flow chart.
