Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Britain's Ambassador to the United States, Karen Pierce, explained that they do not want Russia and China to be the winning parties to the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Pierce said: "when we wake up one morning, we don't want to encounter Chinese standards in areas like artificial intelligence and cybernetics. The second big challenge is the strategic rivalry that will be held by Moscow and China. China's highly authoritarian development and new technologies should benefit Open Markets. That is why the US and UK must do everything right so that open societies can counter the strategic challenge posed by China and Russia."
Pierce, who said that they found the possibility of China setting the rules for future technological development in these areas dangerous, likened the situation today to the period when nuclear technologies became widespread in the 1950s.
