A research arm of the U.S. intelligence community just wrapped up a competition to see who could develop the best facial recognition technology.The competition was one of many examples cited in a report by a U.S.-based think tank about how China's military might leverage its country's rapid advances in artificial intelligence to modernize its armed forces and, potentially, seek advantages against the United States.Schmidt noted that China's national plan for the future of artificial intelligence, announced in July, calls for catching up to the United States in the coming years and eventually becoming the world's primary AI innovation center.An unreleased Pentagon document, viewed by Reuters, warned earlier this year that Chinese firms were skirting U.S. oversight and gaining access to sensitive U.S. AI technology with potential military applications by buying stakes in U.S. firms.
