Half Moon Bay, the United States, June 29 (Xinhua) -- The U.S.- China AI Tech Summit took place on Friday in Silicon Valley, seeking to start an open dialogue between tech leaders of the two countries on the major challenges ahead with the acceleration of AI adoption across various industries.

"We are one of the most diverse places in the Unite States. We welcome totally... cooperation." Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak told Xinhua. "I think it's much better to talk and communicate and share and get more done than I just stay narrow and compete, and keep what we have from them."

"I'm hoping there are more and more joint ventures and investment both directions," said Wozniak.

This gathering is co-hosted by the AI Alliance of Silicon Valley, the Future Society and China's AI Industry Alliance (AIIA), the official industry body behind China's AI Strategy, and the host of AI Forum at the Wuzhen Summit.

"This is the first ever U.S.-China AI Tech Summit in Silicon Valley," Helen Liang, Co-President of The Al Alliance of Silicon Valley told Xinhua. "This elite gathering will help shape global AI strategy, industry best practices and AI governance policy."

The summit catalyzes a subsequent series of industry forums, working groups, and other collaborations, focusing on Future Mobility, AI in Healthcare, AI in FinTech, AI in the Law, AI for Enterprise and Robotics and Drones, etc.
