THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE RUSH
2018 EDITION
During the 15th century, Chinese civilization was probably the most advanced in the world. By
1433, the Chinese admiral Zheng He had already sailed from China to India, Indonesia, and
even Africa on caravels twice as large as those Christopher Columbus used 59 years later
for his fateful journey. China could have been the country to discover America. Instead, its
government surprisingly decided to put an end to its naval activities and burn its entire fleet
of ships, indirectly allowing Spain to conquer America and bring prosperity to Europe. It took
more than 5 centuries for China to recover from this political decision. What could make such
an advanced country deliberately turn away from its future? Officially, Chinese elites decided
to cease naval exploration for budgetary reasons. But in reality, they burned their fleet of 317
ships because of the new wealth and power bestowed upon a rising class of merchants,
seeing this change as a threat to their internal stability (and likely to their sovereignty).
AI is an extremely powerful trend. It offers humans and machines a brand-new perspective
thereby fueling changes that disrupt our economy today and tomorrow will impact our society
as a whole. China is currently leading the AI race, spending nearly half (48%) of the $12.5
billion to be invested globally in 2017 (*). Europe is lagging behind but experiencing some
strong momentum (+190% YoY), with $2.3 billion invested in AI startups in 2017. In the EU,
the AI ecosystem has created 32,000 jobs at 888 amazing VC backed companies ❤️, up
from zero just 5 years ago.
The time for AI adoption has come. For European policymakers, it’s more a matter of how the
EU will use AI as a competitive edge and lever for society than pouring money into its
development. With populism and isolationism in full swing, the AI revolution must be
legitimized and guided by our institutions, so it can be accepted by the population and keep
us from falling into technological obscurantism.
The faster and the smoother the EU adopts AI, the more advanced it will be compared to
other nations.
