Defense analyst Francis Tusa highlighted China's rapid advancements in AI and military technology, stating that the country is not restrained by fears over AI, The Sun reported.

"They are developing new ship designs, new submarine designs, and new fighter aircraft designs at a dizzying rate," Tusa said. "They are moving four or five times faster than the States."

Tusa predicts that autonomous machines from China could emerge within two years.

Last month, Chinese firm Unitree Robotics showcased its robotic gun dog during a military exercise with the Cambodian military.

China's drive to surpass the West appeals to the country's leader, Xi Jinping, and could embolden Russia's Vladimir Putin.

Tusa noted, "For the Chinese, it’s the issue of have we beaten the Americans and the UK in getting a fully autonomous fighter aircraft. There’s huge prestige. I think they’ll go all out on autonomy and harnessing AI and I think Russia will follow suit."
