China’s Pursuit of Next Frontier Technology


Technological competition between the U.S. and China is heating up. The “Made in China 2025” plan will continue to enlarge China’s industrial robotics market, and China also aims to surpass America’s lead in artificial intelligence research.

Henrik Christensen, director of the UC San Diego Institute of Contextual Robotics, explains how China is investing in these cutting-edge sectors. Barry Naughton, Sokwanlok Chair of Chinese International Affairs at GPS, discusses these trends in the context of China’s industrial policies and economic reforms in the Xi Jinping era.

This event is part of the China Policy Turning Points series, sponsored by the UC San Diego International Institute and the 21st Century China Center.
