Whether or not Lee is correct in evaluating how the two nations stand in relation to each other, it makes sense for US policymakers to assume more could be done to reduce barriers to AI advancement and encourage the technology’s development. And to that, it’s certainly worth taking a look at “Reducing Entry Barriers in the Development and Application of AI ” by Caleb Watney of the R Street Institute. The analysis finds that one goal of policy should be to increase the supply of AI talent and speed AI diffusion by importing more AI talent and allowing companies to better deduct the cost of training AI workers.
