In September, USSC conducted a survey to test sentiment toward different areas of the alliance agenda in the United States, Australia and Japan. One area of strong alignment was around expanding collaboration on emerging technology. A strong majority in both Australia and Japan favour working with the United States on everything from AI to quantum computing. In Australia, 69 per cent agree or strongly agree they should be working with the United States, compared to 64 per cent of Japanese respondents. This highlights the opportunity for the Quad and other partnerships to take an even stronger stance on a collaborative tech agenda.
Should your country collaborate with the United States on the development of technologieslike artificial intelligence, quantum computers and semiconductor manufacturing?
