To sound the alarm about U.S. outcompetence China, first U.S. Chief software Officer steps down

Nicolas Chaillan (US Air Force Chief Software Officer) resigned on September 7. His post was posted to Linked in titled “It is Time To Say Goodbye!”

“I am more aware than ever,” he said. “Our children…will no longer have any chance to compete in a world in which China has the vast advantage of population over America.”

Chaillan told ‘Fox & Friends First’ Thursday that his goal in resigning was not to admit defeat, but to implore people to understand that ‘we’re running out of time.’ 

“If we fail to act now, we’ll be in a difficult situation.

He said that he resigned because he wanted to sound the alarm so we could take corrective action before it was too late.

Chaillan feels that the problem lies partially with U.S. top officials. “The Pentagon is reporting China is catching-up…when it really is a threat to our democracy,” he stated.

Chaillan, who was first to have that title in 2019, joined the Pentagon as the Chief Software Officer. He also co-led the Department of Defense’s Development, security, and operations division, DEVSECOPS. 

He immediately identified the key differences between China and the U.S. in how they interact with private sector technology companies. 

China can mandate companies to work together, to access data and artificial intelligence at a quicker pace,” he stated, underscoring the United States’ inability to “reach out to our U.S.” companies.”

AI is the way to go if you’re looking to win in an age of 10-20 years, he stated, emphasizing the need for the United States to act quickly. It is possible to fall behind over time, and it will make it very difficult for you to catch up.

“Those who claim that they only have five years or ten to wake up…that’s false. By that point it will be too late.”

Fox News’ Chailian stated that while he doesn’t believe the U.S. is in a losing technology war with China already, he wanted to make it clear to Fox News that he believes that we must wake up and realize that we will not be able to defeat China for 15 years if we do not.

He said, “We are facing 1.5 billion people.” We either win or our intelligence and agility are greater. It doesn’t matter what.
