AI world has room for both US and China: ex-Google and Baidu insider

Scientist Andrew Ng urges all countries to develop strategies like Beijing's

SAN FRANCISCO -- One of the few researchers who has led the development of artificial intelligence in both the U.S. and China dismisses the notion of an "AI race" between the trade war foes and thinks they could even learn from each other.

Andrew Ng, the former leader of the AI teams at Baidu and Google Brain, told an event in San Francisco on Sept. 5 that the two countries have their own advantages in developing AI. The U.S. still has the edge in fundamental research, he said, but Chinese companies have easier access to the consumer market thanks to Beijing's national AI strategy, which promotes the spread of the technology.
