Nicolas Chaillan, Former Pentagon Software Chief, on What the US Must Do to Win China AI Battle Before ‘Point of No Return’

“We’re losing this battle.” The United States is losing the AI race against communist China, says Nicolas Chaillan, who recently resigned from his position as the chief software officer for the U.S. Air Force.

U.S. companies still lead in technological advancements, but they are unwilling to share their technology with the Department of Defense. “If we stopped over-classifying information … they might see pretty quickly that [the communist China threat] is going to become a real problem even to their day-to-day lives,” Chaillan says.
