The report, published by the Center for Security and Emerging Technology in July 2022, seeks to review the steps taken by various Chinese entities towards artificial intelligence in general. It has been pointed out that artificial general intelligence (AGI) or general AI cannot be related to human-level machine intelligence.
This paper examines whether a path to general AI is available in principle. This paper identifies five theoretical paths to AI in general. a) attempts to understand intelligence from cues from human behavior and create machine algorithms that emulate it, b) reverse engineering the human brain based on the assumption that intelligence is what emerges, c) Coercion theoretically allows intelligence to emerge by running algorithms fast enough, d) expanding the definition of intelligence, and e) arranging both human and machine elements to achieve human goals. use a brain-computer interface to In addition to these, the report identifies three broad areas of his Chinese studies that may be closely related. machine learning, brain-inspired AI research, and brain-computer interfaces (BCI).
The report also records top Chinese institutions engaged in one or more of three archetypal research areas, including AI in general, computational approaches, brain-inspired approaches, and brain-computer interfaces. is showing. Prominent companies involved in such research include Baidu Research, his DAMO Academy on Alibaba, Tencent AI Lab, and Huawei. Chinese enterprises are also committed to the integration of artificial intelligence and biointelligence. The enterprises that have taken important steps include the Beijing Academy of Artificial Intelligence, the National Key Research Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning at Beijing Normal University, and the China Brain Research Institute. and national key research institutes. of brain and cognitive science.
In this report, researchers from Tsinghua University’s BCI Lab, Tsinghua University’s Brain-Inspired Computing Research Center, Neural Matrix, and Tianjin University’s Brain Science and Brain-Similar Research Center are all involved in brain-computer interfaces or neuromorphic chips. It also provides a list of Chinese organizations pursuing AI in general. To name a few.
In addition to this, the report also provides a sneak peek into China’s AI surveillance system in operation. For this reason, the report also provides some case studies. Last but not least, some recommendations are also outlined.
Validity of the report
The report provides a good backdrop for the various steps taken by Chinese entities towards artificial intelligence in general. We also describe the methodology used to build a database and prototype watchboard that will allow analysts to capture and potentially predict AI-related events in China.
- Five theoretical paths to AI in general are identified to help give an open-minded understanding of China’s AI development.
- There are three approaches to advanced AI: brainstreams, brain-inspired, and brain-computer interfaces.
- There is a clear record of top Chinese institutions engaged in one or more of three archetypal research areas, such as compute-intensive big data approaches to advanced AI.
- AI surveillance systems form an integral path to safety.Apart from the United States, China is another country that has been able to create advanced forms of artificial intelligence that pose unknown and potentially catastrophic risks.
- China systematically monitors US AI development, and China’s general AI development carries potential risks.
