We must get over Huawei’s 5G victory and focus on the real threat https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2020/01/28/must-get-huaweis-5g-victory-focus-real-threat/?WT.mc_id=tmg_share_tw via @telegraphtech
Like the launch of Sputnik in 1957, Huawei is not really a fight about technology. Rather, it is emblematic of a superpower showdown, a simple, scary signifier to the West that its preeminence is being challenged …
To my mind, there is only one technology on which we must stay ahead: AI. Because it is a catalyst, an accelerator which will bestow a greater pace of discovery on whoever best harnesses it.
So, let’s stop moaning and make sure that we Brits can still be world leaders in ‘future technology’ – and get on with nurturing our youngsters to be at the forefront of AI.
