Fight for No1: U.S., China Take The Lead In Race For AI

China and the United States are ahead of the global competition to dominate artificial intelligence (AI), according to a study by the U.N. World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) published on Thursday. The study found U.S. tech giant IBM had by far the biggest AI patent portfolio, with 8,920 patents, ahead of Microsoft with 5,930 and a group of mainly Japanese tech conglomerates. China accounted for 17 of the top 20 academic institutions involved in patenting AI and was particularly strong in the fast growing area of “deep learning” - a machine-learning technique that includes speech recognition systems.
“The U.S. and China obviously have stolen a lead. They’re out in front in this area, in terms of numbers of applications, and in scientific publications,” WIPO Director-General Francis Gurry told a news conference. The single most popular AI application was computer vision, used in self-driving cars, and mentioned in 49 percent of all AI-related patents.

AI is expected to be the most disruptive technology and will be instrumental and an integral part in bringing up a technological revolutions - we call Industry 4.0 . People have no idea how fast the world is changing. As per Moore's law  technological developments what we have achieved in last 100 years will take place in less than 10 years in 21st century. Once the adoption of 5G services is complete Internet of  Things (IoT), Big Data Analytics &  AI ( Machine Learning & Deep Learning) will revolutionize Industry 4.0 .  AI has already surpassed human Intelligence. The Deep Blue computer is a better chess-player since 1997. In 2016, Google's Deepmind Challenge match 18 times world champion Lee Sedol was defeated by AlphaGo in Go games 4 times in a five match series. The data science machine analyses data better than humans and AI is faster and smarter at visual recognition than humans. Alibaba built AI that can read better than the average human and an AI music program writes better pop songs. This AI system is better at strategy games too. Self-Driving Cars will reduce deaths and save money. Countries like China, USA, Russia, Germany, Japan , India and UK are building the necessary hardware and software to shape the AI . Who is taking lead and who is behind is not important, what is important is that we will be able to see the changed and technology driven world within our life time. Welcome to the world of Singularity Hub.
