Why the United States Is Winning the AI Race—for Now
Paul Scharre expands on his FP cover essay.
Artificial intelligence has gone from being a relatively niche area a year ago to a topic that the broader public seems obsessed with. Some of this new interest, to be fair, is because of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. When it launched late last year, its performance resonated with non-experts because it started doing well at human tasks such as school tests or the bar exam. As a result, it spurred a bigger debate about AI’s role in society, its impact on jobs, the economy, and much else.
