The United States is supposed to be a technology giant.
Former Pentagon software boss Nicolas Chaillan says that is not true.
Chaillan recently left his Pentagon job because he believes that China has already won the tech war against our country, and the globe, for that matter.
We have all seen the massive cyberattacks that have taken place against our country in recent years.
Many of these breaches are believed to have been the work of Russian and Chinese operatives.
The only question is whether their governments were behind them or not.
Chaillan stated that the United States is operating at levels nowhere near what China can do, and it is only going to worsen.
He stated, “We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years.
“Right now, it’s already a done deal; it is already over, in my opinion.”
Chaillan believes the United States erred when devoting less funding to AI research in favor of stockpiling military equipment and weapons.
He was also very critical of tech giants in this country not working with the government as they do in countries like China.
He stated, “While we wasted time in bureaucracy, our adversaries moved further ahead.”
Chaillan continued, “At this point, I am just tired of continuously chasing support and money to do my job.”
He added that this position at the Pentagon was “probably the most challenging and infuriating of my entire career.”
This is beyond alarming, especially when considering the hacks and data breaches we have seen over the last year.
