Competing in the Superpower Marathon with China
How should we think about China's growing influence in the realm of AI and the attendant geopolitical risks and implications? This session will explore China’s bid through Huawei to build and control the world's 5G networks, and what that implies for human rights and national sovereignty and security; China's export of surveillance technology to authoritarian regimes around the world; China's global partnerships to research and develop AI; and the problem of illicit technology transfer/theft.

It builds on the Hoover Institution's highly successful report, China's Influence and American Interests, to track the multiple ways that the Chinese Communist party-state is trying to penetrate and sway democracies and global institutions and norms.
