I've been reading a new book by AI expert Kai-Fu Lee with great interest. The book, AI Superpowers, which is due out this September, underscores a race between China and the U.S. for AI's development. It delves into the tech innovation upgrade and entrepreneurial energy that are leading China to catch up to the U.S. leadership position in AI at an astonishingly rapid rate. This insightful book by Lee who is both an AI pioneer and a China venture capitalist as head of tech-savvy Sinovation Ventures in Beijing, lays out how China is set to dominate the AI era due to having more data. It's a wake-up call for Silicon Valley, a message I understand well as the author of Silicon Dragon, published a decade ago when most Sand Hill Road VCs did not want to hear that the Chinese are coming.

In his pre-Wuhan Virus book, "Artificial Intelligence (AI) Super-Powers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order," Taiwan-born American computer scientist, Kai-Fu Lee, having spent considerable time in China, awakens the reader to a new world of dramatic changes, realignments and sociological challenges. It is the end of the world as we know it. And the future is already here, although the author gives us about 20 more years to see it implemented. In Kai-Fu's opinion, the world has moved from theoretical discovery to practical applications and from the age of expertise to the age of data. AI is the energy of the new age.
When I entered Stanford, I was considering becoming a doctor or neuroscientist. I really enjoyed the sciences in high school, but had never written a line of code. I took my first Computer Science course as a freshman without plans to pursue it further, but by the end of freshman year I wanted to major in it. I was less sure about a career in Computer Science though. I questioned if I would be good enough for the tech industry, or even like working in it.
