Waste, mismanagement, and a general unwillingness to adopt new ways of doing things are preventing the United States military from contending with China in several critical and emerging technology fields, according to one former Pentagon official.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is threatening to leapfrog over the United States in developing AI, machine learning, and hypersonic weapons technologies, said former chief software officer of the Air Force, Nicolas Chaillan.
“[There’s] a lot of silos and egos, kind of slowing the urgency or, at the very least, not admitting often that China is leading the way in some of these fields that will define who is going to win the next battle,” Chaillan said during an Aug. 30 interview with NTD, a sister media outlet of The Epoch Times.
