CHINESE and Russian Artificial Intelligence (AI) are set leave US systems in their dust as the emerging superpowers bid to become the world’s most powerful nation.
Kari Bingen, Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (SDI), warned the two powers were making huge advances in their tech and were advancing on the US.
The findings came form an earth shattering report that claimed the US has rapidly fallen behind its rivals and must now decide if it wants to “lead the coming revolution, or fall victim to it”.
Former deputy SDI, Robert Work, said the Pentagon needed to pour billions into researching advanced computing and robotics, or risk Russia developing murderous AI machines.
Moscow hardman Vladimir Putin believes the country will develop the best AI and become “the ruler of the world”.
Russian military eggheads are now building drones, robots and cruise missiles that could make deadly decisions without the need for humans.
The advancement has panicked US billionaire Eric Schmidt who said China was also gaining on the US and could overtake Washington in five years.
“It feels, as an American, that we are fighting this conflict with one hand behind our back” – Eric Schmidt
