CIPHER BRIEF REPORTING — As a response to concerns about U.S. involvement in Chinese high-tech industries, President Biden this month signed an executive order that aims to preclude American companies from aiding Beijing’s development in a number of spheres – from semiconductor technology to artificial intelligence to quantum mechanics – in addition to implementing a new slate of constraints regarding U.S. private investment.
