Interesting article, thanks for posting. For sure that initiative can only be lip service; an empty response to the chinese Ai drive, to try to keep potential voters happy. The Chinese government are investing many billions in new “Ai” research. If anyone is characterised by the phrase “Money talks”, Mr Trump certainly is. So if there is no money being invested, there is no real initiative. I don’t think it will change anything, not even slightly. Which is a shame, because that would probably be a much more worthy arms race than the one he seems keen to restart.
