More than 300,000 papers on AI have been publish

ed globally from 2013 to 2018, among which around 74,000 were published by Chinese researche

rs and 52,000 by their US counterparts, and the US dominated in fields such as citation impact, number of p

atents, and the scale of companies and funds, the report said, adding that China lacks basic theoretical research.

The report was compiled by the Research Center for AI Develo

pment, which was established last year by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

“China and the United States are the two main pillars of the world’s AI r

esearch network, and the most cooperation on AI research happened between the two n

ations-the link between them is the strongest,” said Li Xiuquan, deputy director of the center. “But more and mo

re countries have realized the importance of AI, and paid a lot of attention to this area.”
