An emerging study revealed China as a global leader in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence.

The study ranked each countries based on an AI maturity index compiled by Infosys, giving each a correspondent percentage score. China got the highest with 56 percent, clearly reflecting its growing reputation as one of the world's most innovative technological powers.

Trailing behind is India and Germany with 55 percent and 53 percent, respectively. Interestingly, the US, which is the home of Silicon Valley and the birthplace of the World Wide Web, only scored 46 percent, while the UK only notched 44 percent.

According to Computer Business Review, the survey blamed the index results on legacy systems. It said that the maturity gap is likely high since China and India have fewer legacy systems and business processes to contend with, "making AI adoption and integration easier to accomplish."

The 'maturity' index should boost AI efforts on countries, particularly because an association was found between an organization's revenue growth and AI maturity. Moreover, the report showed that organizations that report faster growth in terms of revenue in the past three years are more likely more advanced in AI maturity.

More than three-fourths (76%) of the respondents cited AI as an essential factor to the success of their organization's strategy. Furthermore, over half (64%) think that the future growth of their organization depends on large scale AI adoption.

"Artificial intelligence (AI) adoption is on the rise and we are excited to see the investments in AI that businesses are gradually making to derive meaningful and creative change," Sandeep Dadlani, Infosys' President, said.

Dadlani further added that their research revealed that AI maturity and gain momentum are expected to further increase in interest and general bullishness on core values and benefits through AI adoption.

"The achievements are remarkable and the opportunities AI is bringing forth are vast," he added.
