< Previously, Observer Network had extracted the book "Global Pattern of Artificial Intelligence" just published in September. The book mentioned that in the early days of Trump's appointment in 2017, the government's response to artificial intelligence was relatively cold. But this situation is changing. The Trump administration has made some changes and sublimation of the artificial intelligence development strategy of the Obama era, and began to seek a completely different, free market-oriented artificial intelligence strategy.

And China, the development of science and technology has long been in the running position, but in the industrial 4.0 era, China has been catching up and has been leading the way in many fields. China has entered the first echelon of global artificial intelligence development and regards artificial intelligence as the dominant strategy of the future. As the world's second largest economy, China has announced its ambition to lead the world in artificial intelligence theory, technology and applications at a time when countries are making intensive development strategies for artificial intelligence.
