Carnegie Foundation: Chinese AI Tech Dominating The Globe
By Daniel Taylor
A September, 2019 report from the Carnegie Foundation found that Chinese artificial intelligence surveillance systems are rapidly overtaking the planet. Chinese companies (with Huawei leading) are dominating by supplying 63 countries with these systems, while the U.S. supplies only 32.
The report states,
“China is a major driver of AI surveillance worldwide. Technology linked to Chinese companies – particularly Huawei, Hikvision, Dahua, and ZTE—supply AI surveillance technology in sixty-three countries, thirty-six of which have signed onto China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).”
The Chinese, of course, have strings attached to their systems. The report says that,
“Chinese product pitches are often accompanied by soft loans to encourage governments to purchase their equipment“.
The United States follows China in supplying the world with AI surveillance systems. US based company IBM supplies 11 countries, Palantir 9, and Cisco 6.
Using the new AI Global Surveillance (AIGS) Index, a map from the report shows the spread of AI surveillance around the world:
According to the report, AI is starting to “transform basic patterns of governance”:
“…not only by providing governments with unprecedented capabilities to monitor their citizens and shape their choices but also by giving them new capacity to disrupt elections, elevate false information, and delegitimize democratic discourse across borders.”
If Chinese AI systems continue to spread around the world, freedom will be absolutely crushed. Recent examples of hollywood and corporations bowing to Chinese censors are a bad omen for the world. America needs to take a stand for freedom and fight for a culture that values liberty before it is too late.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
