Trump administration orders research into AI

U.S. President Donald Trump

The aim of the new initiative is to boost AI development and funding in the US and also to ensure that America is a leader when it comes to helping shape global artificial intelligence policies.

The executive order instructs a number of federal agencies, from the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence, to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), to effectively pave the road for private companies.

Trump plans to sign an executive order directing federal agencies to prioritize research and development in artificial intelligence.

The American AI Initiative aims to ensure that the USA retains its research and development advantage in AI and other emerging technologies such as quantum computing and advanced manufacturing.

The race for AI dominance is heating up and other countries will likely make similar investments into AI and other emerging technologies to remain competitive.

United States president Donald Trump wants his country to spend more on artificial intelligence (AI) technology research. The administration says it's up to Congress to appropriate money. The White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy said in a statement during the speech on February 5 that AI was among the industries Trump was referring to, alongside 5G broadband, advanced manufacturing and others.

Resource availability: AI researchers should have access to federal data, algorithms and computer processing. It aims to set guidelines to ensure the new technologies are trustworthy.

Preparing workers: Agencies will train people to prepare for the changes resulting from AI (such as automaton), through apprenticeships, fellowships and training programs.

"AI is something that touches every aspect of people's lives", a senior administration official said on a conference call, recently.
