U.S. Government Proposing to Restrict Exports Of Tech Such as Quantum Computing & AI to China
(WebProNews) The Trump administration has floated a proposal that would limit high-tech exports such as quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI), robots, image recognition and self-driving tech would all be prohibited from being exported to China.
“If you think about the range of products this potentially implicates, that’s massive. This is either the opening of a big negotiation with the industry and the public or a bit of a cry for help in scoping these regulations,” R. David Edelman, the director of the Project on Technology, the Economy, & National Security at MIT, told The Washington Post.
At the very least, the administration seems intent on extending the restrictions to those countries that are already subject to U.S. arms embargoes, including China.
