artificial intelligence, as the strategic rivalry between the two countries raises fears of a new type of arms race. Fu Ying, a former Chinese vice-minister for foreign affairs, said the two sides, which are world leaders in the field, should work together to build a global governance system for AI technologies.
“Experts think that since the weaponisation of artificial intelligence is inevitable, we need to find an appropriate governance path,” she told a forum at Tsinghua University on Friday, according to a transcript of her speech. “I hope we can set up a very inclusive international governance committee … and come up with international norms through joint discussion, research and by listening to good opinions and suggestions. This is very necessary and urgent,” she said.
