AI Superpowers - now a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestseller, talks about how China's rise in entrepreneurism is leading to a new model of innovation, which has provided the basis for AI co-leadership with the United States of America (USA). The book goes into detail about what this competition entails for the USA and China, as well as what Dr. Lee’s proposed duopoly between the countries would mean for the global geopolitical situation.

In addition, Dr. Lee discusses the future of AI, and how the countries have many opportunities to collaborate to solve the big challenges created by AI (e.g. jobs, privacy, security, etc.). This is not so much a tech book as it is a book that is educational, accessible to all and serves as a wake-up call for many who misunderstand AI. There is something for everyone within its pages — those who know AI, those who don’t, those who are fascinated by it and those who fear it.

In this conversation, Dr. Kai-Fu Lee will talk about the four waves of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how AI will permeate every part of our lives in the next decade. He will be sharing on how this wave will be different from previous technology revolutions — it will be faster and be driven by not just one superpower, but two, the USA and China.

AI will add $16 trillion to the global GDP but, at the same time, will cause many challenges that will be hard to solve. In particular, he will focus on AI replacing routine jobs – the consequences, the proposed solutions that do not work (such as UBI), and end with a blueprint of co-existence between humans and AI.
