Politico published the article “China wants to dominate AI. The U.S. and Europe need each other to tame it” on March 02, 2021, with a cameo from MDI and CAIDP:
“Strategically, both the U.S. and the EU are concerned about China, so they need a tech policy that acknowledges a very aggressive position that China has taken in AI,” said Marc Rotenberg, director of the Center on AI and Digital Policy at the Michael Dukakis Institute, a technology and leadership think tank in Boston.
Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.), who has championed a U.S. national strategy on AI, asked her European counterparts during testimony to be “narrow and flexible” while pushing ahead with their “desire to be the first to write regulations.” The U.S. and Europe need to stand together as China seeks to write the global playbook, she added.
“Nations that do not share our commitment to democratic values are racing to be the leaders in AI and set the rules for the world,” Kelly said. “We cannot allow this to happen.”
