I originally intended to jump forward to the pages 88-99 that were highlighted by the submitter. Instead, I read or skimmed every page in the document. This is the most riveting presentation I have seen in years. Mass surveillance coupled with AI is only one of many sections.
It also addresses:
- China's homegrown digital innovators
- China's dependence on imported semiconductors
- AI in transportation and medicine
- Banking and payment systems
- The future global manufacturing landscape
- The future of global development and governance
 Mostly candid. I found it a bit self-congratulatory toward Google's TPU technology and Waymo.
I have no idea how COVID-19, global power struggle, effects of quantitative easing, etc. will play out but I will enjoy watching the show.
In a crazy world, it is up to us as individuals, family groups, and friend groups to make life as good as possible given constraints we live in.
My wife and I have a strategy for investing a small amount of money as donations for the upcoming elections. Doing that and voting is all I can do, so otherwise it is kicking back and watching the show.
Sorry if my previous comment sounded cavalier in any way.
From my perspective, AI seems to have more draconian potential than liberating potential. I get that it's a technology we should pursue, but it's got loads of ethical risks that China will pay no mind to. Will that recklessness and wanton disregard for human rights (including the right to privacy) lead to Chinese dominance in AI tech? Maybe.
Will we be at a strategic disadvantage without draconian AI tech? I'm not so sure.

I found this interesting given the target audience of this presentation and what we know from Snowden about the American intelligence community's integration with Google.
