The Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem report, featuring Wayne Sadin of PriceSmartCIO and Acceleration Economy analyst, delves into the US government’s landmark $8.5 billion funding initiative for Intel to support chip factories and development in the United States.

Wayne expresses concern about the decline in US manufacturing in the computer chip sector, which now represents only 12% of global capacity. He points out that even more advanced semiconductors are made in Taiwan, which makes the US decline in this area a worrisome problem. However, while not a proponent of government intervention in free markets, Wayne acknowledges the U.S. government’s responsibility to protect national security, which could justify funding to help the U.S. compete in the global chip industry.

As for Intel’s competition with companies like NVIDIA in areas like artificial intelligence, Wayne talks about Intel’s CEO’s goal to become the world’s leading chip designer and foundry. It highlights the huge investment required to develop artificial intelligence, turning it into an arms race in which the winners are those who produce the necessary technology.

As both a CIO and an American citizen, Wayne sees potential benefits in this initiative to ensure a stable supply chain, especially during uncertain times that could disrupt the flow of parts from overseas. He believes a strong capability in the US is critical to meeting future demands.
