Is China or the U.S. ahead in artificial intelligence? What is the best way to counter security threats in 5G technology? How do we best maintain American leadership positions in fundamental research and biotechnology?
These and other questions about a new strategy for U.S.-China competition in science and technology will be addressed in the press conference as we launch a policy report on "Meeting the China Challenge: A New American Strategy for Technology Competition."
The report is the culmination of over a full year’s deliberation and study by the Working Group on Science and Technology in U.S.-China Relations. It sets forth broad policy objectives as well as specific recommendations for the new U.S. administration in four domains of science and technology: fundamental research, 5G digital communications, artificial intelligence and biotechnology.
