In the race for artificial intelligence
dominance, it is currently just a two horse race when looked at on a national level. As our chart shows, when looking at patent applications, investment, talent, research and companies in the sector, the United States and China are top of the charts when it comes to these key metrics. Between these two leaders, there are areas in which one or the other is far stronger, with China well ahead in terms of investment and financing - China accounted for 60 percent of global investment since 2013. The U.S. on the other hand is most dominant from the perspective of the number of companies operating in the field.
