The best tech we can steal - make it happen (again)!
China has given itself a goal to become a world-leading source of AI infrastructure by 2027, the country's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced in a policy document released on Monday. The document lists facilities and technologies that Beijing has declared important to a technologically advanced …
The US saw itself as a “developing” country back then, so it gave itself exemptions from having to abide by the “intellectual property” laws of “developed” countries.
It seems less keen to pay it forward to today’s “developing” countries, for some reason ...
A little something posted elsewhere about A.N.Others ..... and definitely not anything for the fainthearted and/or lily-livered.

Only in your dreams, Will, for AI knows it different and sets another path/other paths forward into the future.
Ultimately the one limitation which no amount of "Defense Production Act" will be able to overcome is that we're running a structural deficit (currently $34 trillion) and China is not. This, plus the general restrictions on private investment due to the need for a RoI, will act as a ceiling on what we can do.
And foreign governments and businesses accepting dollars and dollar debts as viable instruments of constructive reward rather than realising its unfettered and manic Federal Reserve dollar printing and quantitative easing exercises are as a captive and capturing bottomless pit honey trap for the ignorant and arrogantly unwary and easily led, is another problem being finally recognised as unacceptably self destructive to both public and private investments in need of safe and secure RoI .... and everything else out there in Wild Wicked Wests and Erotic Exotic Easts.
Given China's significant investments in technology and education, as well as its rapid development of technological and manufacturing capabilities, there is a strong likelihood that it will be able to make significant progress towards its goal. but this will also be influenced by global economic conditions, international relations and technological developments in other countries. I recently read an interesting article about trade between Africa and China here https://globy.com/blog/africa-china-trade-and-the-new-focus-on-food, very informative.
