The General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party Xi Jinping declared in 2015 that big data and AI are China’s most important national resources. He predicted China would catch up with America by 2025 in AI and lead the world by 2030. China might be reaching that goal earlier.

Through interviews with Chinese AI insiders and American military and technology experts, as well as deep research into the effectiveness of prior CCP propaganda efforts, Zooming in with Simone Gao uncovers the extent of the danger that China’s big data offensive through popular apps such as TikTok represents.
