AI News, Will China lead the world in AI by 2030?

사람을 아는 재미, 지식을 얻는 기쁨 - 한민족과학기술자네트워크 -

인공지능 기술은 의료, 교통 통신 등 다양한 분야에서 발전을 가져올 것이라고 기대하고 있으며 이 분야에서 기초적인 연구를 하는 나라들이 미래의 방향을 결정하며 많은 혜택을 보게 될 것이라고 예측하는 이들이 많이 있다.

미국 일리노이주 시카고에 미국-중국 관계에 대한 씽크탱크인 Paulson연구소의 Joy Dantong Ma는 “만약 미국이 개방성의 장점을 잃게 되면, AI인재들이 중국을 포함한 경쟁자들에게 가게 되는 결과를 낳게 될 것이다”라고 말했다.

그러나 또한 이러한 중국의 계획을 좌절시킬 수 있는 인자들로 이 분야를 뒷받침하는 이론들에 중국의 공헌도가 낮고, 중국의 회사들의 관심이 낮다는 점을 들었다.

중국에서 최근에 8가지의 원칙을 발표하면서 이 분야에서도 면모를 갖추어 가고 있으나 그 핵심 가운데서 조화, 공정, 정의, 프라이버시의 존중, 안전, 투명, 책임, 협력이 있는데 이는 OEDC에서 지난 5월에 발표한 것과 비슷하다.
