Enhancing Transtlantic Cooperation on AI
Countries competing to be leaders in the use of artificial intelligence face a common threat in the prospect that China could rise to dominate the field, which would put them at a disadvantage across key sectors of the economy. Given this challenge, and the risk that China will use unfair practices to achieve its goal, it may be time to strengthen the historic economic partnerships between North America and Europe with a new focus on AI. In particular, there may be opportunities to deepen research ties, coordinate government projects, promote global standards, and protect common values for their citizens and businesses. This kind of transatlantic investment and research on AI can help all partners make more rapid progress in embracing AI-driven automation and digitization.
