The United States and its partners must use the AI moment to renew their commitment to protecting individual rights, restore commercial competition built on fair rules, and strengthen defence alliances that have kept the peace in Europe and the Pacific for 75 years, argue Eric Schmidt and Robert Work.
Dr Eric Schmidt is the chair of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI). Robert O. Work is the vice-chair of the NSCAI.
The artificial intelligence (AI) revolution playing out today is shaking the strategic terrain beneath our feet. We are now in an AI-charged technology competition fusing economic competitiveness, great power rivalry, and a contest between authoritarianism and democracy. Strong AI partnerships will be important to all aspects of the competition.
