U.S. tops other countries in the use of China’s students for their A.I technology development
Chinese-educated researchers top other countries in A.I technology but the majority of them live in the U.S.
U.S. top other countries in the use of China’s students for their artificial intelligence (A.I) development as a new study shows that Chinese-educated scientists who are talented in the field of artificial intelligence (A.I) technology innovation help U.S. schools and industries dominate in the cutting-edge technology.
China’s top talent in A.I technology ends up in the U.S. more than anywhere else globally. About 53% of the researchers with undergraduate degrees from universities in China whose papers were presented at Neural Information Processing Systems, NeurIPS2019, a top A.I conference work in the US to develop its A.I technology.

The Paulson Institute, which promotes constructive ties between the U.S. and China, estimated that Chinese-educated researchers comprised nearly one-third of the authors of the papers accepted and promoted at a prestigious A.I. conference in 2019, more than from any other country, and most of them lived in the U.S. and worked for companies and universities in the U.S.
A team of about a dozen engineers working at Google, mainly Chinese, was used by the U.S. Defence Department in Project Maven in an effort to remake U.S. military technology through A.I.
The U.S. Defence Department in the Pentagon was fine with many Chinese being in the team despite the rising tensions between the U.S. and China because the American military needed the most qualified A.I experts for the job.
Many Chinese, who studied in the U.S., grew comfortable living there and got work with U.S. employers including included Google, Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Microsoft Research.
The study also shows that they are helping U.S. dominate other countries in the leading-edge A.I technology field particularly in the areas of enabling future computers to make decisions, facial identification and recognition, finding and tracking criminals, picking military targets and driving vehicles.
Matt Sheehan, an analyst with MacroPolo and a co-author of the study, said that Chinese researchers in the field of A.I technology are some of the brightest minds in China and China is leading the U.S in A.I technology and they choose to carry out researches in the U.S. labs, teach their students and work for their companies.
