A study of 2020 data by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation confirmed the U.S. leads the world in the development and use of artificial intelligence (AI), with China rapidly gaining ground, and the European Union trailing.

Analysis of metrics including human talent, research activity, commercial development, and hardware and software investment on the survey gave America a score of 44.6 points out of 100, with China following with a score of 32, and the EU scoring just 23.3.

The U.S. is outspending rivals in startup investment and research and development funding, while China controls more of the world's 500 most powerful supercomputers (214) compared to the U.S. (113) and Europe (91).

The foundation's Daniel Castro said both the U.S. and Europe should respond to China's progress, "because nations that lead in the development of and use of AI will shape its future and significantly improve their economic competitiveness."
