Report: Countries That Are Leading The Artificial Intelligence Race

Artificial Intelligence

The battle for AI supremacy: Yet after years of threatening U.S. leadership in artificial intelligence, China is still lagging behind the U.S. in investment, innovation, and implementation of artificial intelligence (AI).

Although America still ranks number one, a new study has placed China second in the world for the development and implementation of AI. China was followed by the United Kingdom, Canada, and Germany in the ranking.

The rankings had France in sixth place, followed by Singapore, South Korea, Japan, and Ireland. European countries were prominent on the list, of the top-twenty nations, 11 were in Europe, 6 in Asia, two in North America, and one in Oceania.

Australia, Israel, Switzerland, Finland, and Spain ranked 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th, respectively.

It’s worth noting that China was ranked first among 54 countries for “government strategy” and “AI development.” However, the report found that the U.S. leads in AI in four of the six categories: talent, infrastructure, commercial, and research.
