Peter Singer was quoted in an article by Wired Magazine about artificial intelligence:

A White House report last October revealed that China overtook the U.S. as the world’s most prolific producer of research papers in deep learning publications sometime in 2013—and that the gap is widening. 
“This is not like us having stealth technology and Soviets not having it. China has made artificial intelligence a clear priority area to both its economy and military,” says Peter Singer, a senior fellow who studies technology and national security at non-partisan think tank New America. “Even if this proposed legislation went through, it wouldn’t stop them from continuing to engage successfully with this technology—they’re a superpower and the world’s second largest economy.”
