Artificial intelligence will bring about changes as fundamental as t

hose enabled by electrification, argues Li Kaifu, Chinese artificial intelligence specialist and fo

under of the venture capital firm Sinovation Ventures. He says that China is leading in real-world applications of AI to bus

inesses, factories and cities, and is catching up with the United States in basic research.

Li’s technological optimism contrasts with a widespread pessi

mism about technology prevalent among thinkers from Silicon Valley.

For example, famed venture capitalist Peter Theil uses the slogan “We wanted flying cars, ins

tead we got 140 characters” as the subtitle of his investment fund. In many interviews, he ha

s explained that we’ve seen “innovation in the world of bits, but not in the world of atoms”.

onomic and cultural exchanges and cooperation with Taiwan, offering the same opportunities as m

ainland residents enjoy in education, doing business and living on the mainland.

To date, 72 local authorities in 25 provinces, autonomous

regions and municipalities have formulated implementation measures, with many pub

lishing more details, including policy interpretations, public services and contacts, An said.

Over the past year, more than 2,000 enterprises from Taiwan on the mai

nland have benefited from a new favorable tax policy. More than 100 Taiwan companies ha

ve received special funds to support green, intelligent manufacturing and upgrades. A number of companies joined m

jor mainland projects including Beijing’s new airport and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.

More young people in Taiwan have chosen to pursue their dreams on the mainland, with the number of students w

Most US media outlets have congratulated China for landi

ing a probe on the far side of the moon. For instance, Jim Bridenstine, NASA administrator, took

to Twitter to describe the mission as “a first for humanity and an impressive accomplishment”. China, on it

s part, said that scientists from the two communicated closely before and during the Chang’e-4 launch process.

While the US side informed Chinese scientists about its satellites in orbit around the moon, Chi

na shared with the US scientists the longitude, latitude and timing of Chang’e-4’s landing. The int

eraction was in sharp contrast to the tense relations between the two sides in other areas of science and technology. W

hich means there is huge room for cooperation between the US and China in space exploration.

Cooperation more important in spaceina have both made great progress in

Although the US and Ch space technologies, they are still in the primitive sta

ge of developing and using space. As of today, neither country is capable of building a new permanent sta

tion in space, let alone building one on the moon. But through cooperation and collaboration, which will reduce the cost of

space development for both countries, the US and China can aim at more ambitious targets.
