So the other day i was investigating potential artificial intelligence investments and was looking at an index fund for AI and got the listing of companies in that fund. The vast majority of companies in there weren't even American companies which was quite disturbing. If other countries get ahead of us in AI research, who knows what their bots will do and who will be in control once this technology matures in those countries while America falls behind.

Are these fears reasonable? The only major American companies that seem to be doing a lot of AI research are Google, Nvidia, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, and the auto companies researching self driving cars.

what makes you think American AI companies have to be listed on the stock exchange?

pretty sure the big military companies are working on AI, and ones that no one know about as well

Don't look at number, look at market cap. There is only one company that Elon Musk is afraid of in terms of AI and it's a huge American company:

Don't know about IA, but we have been falling behind in human intelligence for some years now.

Well, there is a limit to the type of technology the general public will be allowed to have, There is just no way they are going to let everyone have all kinds of things we expect to come, it would be a disaster for them and the control they hold over us.

One example is invisibility cloaks, they have been working on them for awhile and probably have one that truly works, but think about it, if anyone could pop into walmart and buy something that makes you totally invisible to the naked eye (or surveillance cameras), that person could go out and rob every bank in broad daylight and no one could see them do it, there are also many other things they could do that would be very bad for society in general.

There was even an act in 1951 to suppress such technology, 'Invention secrecy act of 1951', in short, if its too good for the people, or too destructive to govt, industry, etc, it is suppressed. I can only imagine what they have kept from us so far!

There is no real A.I. going on.

They are simply making walking/talking Alexia/Cortana ( non-halo )/Google/ Apple speech programs.

They had them for years. Like you say "Lights On" or even "clap" like the clapper .................................................. .................................................. .................. Modern day A.I. are response mechanisms with sex-doll bodies. Like in the following example
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqlhYcPx4K0



So it will be like all of the gentiles will be playing with China-ware muff toys. While the world will be over-runned with, Lesbians, and cheap whores you think are self-serviant women.

I strongly suspect the U.S. will need to partner with Europe and other western states just to keep up. But our current numbskulled political environment will make that more of a challenge than it needs to be.

Resuscitate Rust Belt manufacturing through tariff war is at higher priority than 5G & AI chip. Even pollution standards are lower now to facilitate trade war for bringing back manufacturing jobs. China actually moved on from manufacturing to other things.
