China is overtaking America in Artificial Intelligence and IoT

It is estimated that there will be eight billion devices in China that will be connected to the new technology Internet of Things by 2030. Those devices would include cars, infrastructure equipment, robots, and other types of equipment.

China is now overtaking the US in the research of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This has been said in a report by the website NikEasia.com. According to him, this happened for the first time in 2020, when China’s academic research about AI was cited most often. This has been considered a sign of the improving quality of research being done in China. Before that, America was very ahead in terms of AI research.

Nikkei Asia has said in its analysis that one of the main reasons for China’s strong position in the field of AI is that there is a huge amount of related data being generated there. It is estimated that by 2030, there will be eight billion devices in China that will be connected to the new technology Internet of Things. Those devices would include cars, infrastructure equipment, robots, and other types of equipment. Weilin Zhao, the senior researcher at the Tokyo-based Itochu Resort Institute, told the website Nikkei Asia – China sees AI as a way to meet the labor shortage. She is apprehensive of the declining population.

AI is being used today in a variety of industries. Experts say that this has a big impact on the competitive ability of the country. The National Security Commission, set up regarding artificial intelligence in the US, warned in March last that the initiative that America currently has in the field of AI could be lost to China. The chairman of this commission is Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google company.

It is believed all over the world today that the competition between America and China is increasing in the field of AI. Now, this happened for the first time in 2020 when research done in China in this area was cited more often than research done in America. According to a study conducted at Stanford University in the US, the percentage of citations of research done in China in academic documents was 20.7 percent. While the percentage of quotes from American research remained the same at 19.8.

According to a British research expert, since 2012, about two 240,000 research papers are prepared about AI in China every year, while in America this number has been only about 150,000. Experts say that now the research being done in China, especially in the matter of image recognition, is of high quality.

The development of AI requires massive human and financial resources. Mamoru Komachi, a computer language expert, and professor at Tokyo Metropolitan University said that there are only a few countries that have these resources. China has created many such institutions and companies, which have such resources. Those institutions include Xinhua University, Peking University, and Chinese Academy of Sciences, Baidu, and Xiaomi. According to observers, so far America is ahead in the field of AI. But the growing power of China is also gradually becoming clear.
