Funding from the CHIPS and Science Act is expected to build new semiconductor manufacturing plants, but to staff new fabs, Research Analyst Will Hunt estimates a need for more than 3,000 high-tech workers.

Drawing from his CSET report "Silicon Twist," Research Analyst Ryan Fedasiuk shares how the U.S. can mitigate the Chinese military's acquisition of U.S.-manufactured AI chips in an interview with FedScoop.

A CSET report highlights the potential for China to supplant the U.S. as the world leader in leading-edge semiconductor production.

A recent CSET study finds that China is receiving access to artificial intelligence chips developed by U.S. companies.

In his latest CSET brief, Research Analyst Will Hunt explains why exports controls on semiconductor manufacturing equipment against China are an important leveraging tool for the U.S. and its allies.

In his CSET report Research Analyst Will Hunt makes the case that even with the construction of new U.S. fabs through the CHIPS Act, a few thousand foreigns workers with semiconductor manufacturing experience will need to be hired.

Between 2012 and 2018, the amount of computing power used by record-breaking artificial intelligence models doubled every 3.4 months. Even with money pouring into the AI field, this trendline is unsustainable. Because of cost, hardware availability and engineering difficulties, the next decade of AI can't rely exclusively on applying more and more computing power to drive further progress.
