Small but mighty Canada fights for space in highly competitive artificial intelligence world

“The U.S. used to be the scientific centre of the world, he says, but it’s very clear China is going to take over that leadership role. Things take a long time to happen in North America, he said, because grant systems here are so bureaucratic.

“There’s one aspect that makes it fundamentally different and why they’re going to pull into the lead and build an enormous lead that will be very difficult to overcome, and that is nimbleness,” he said.

“They have lots of money and they’re not afraid to spend it.”

“That nimbleness means the U.S. will be eclipsed, Canada is eclipsed,” he said.

‘That gap between China and the rest of the world will grow very quickly.'”
