Trump Set to Announce 'American Artificial Intelligence Initiative'

Trump administration unveils order to prioritise and promote AI

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Monday directing the U.S. government to prioritise artificial intelligence in its research and development spending, the White House said.

This initiative, which will elevate federal funding for AI research and support USA -led AI worldwide standards, doesn't contain new AI development funding or additional details on next steps, The Verge reported. It urges other countries to open markets for American AI industries while ensuring the technology developed in a manner consistent with American values and interests.

The order will instruct federal agencies to focus on artificial intelligence in their research and development efforts, senior administration officials said, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

The plan, called the American AI Initiative, is meant to enhance national and economic security and improve Americans' quality of life.

"Heads of implementing agencies that also perform or fund R&D (AI R&D agencies), shall consider AI as an agency R&D priority", the order states, noting, "Heads of such agencies shall take this priority into account when developing budget proposals and planning for the use of funds in Fiscal Year 2020 and in future years".

Though there's no specific budget behind the "American Artificial Intelligence Initiative", the president wants government agencies to invest in research, promotion, and training to help workers prepare for the era of AI.

Vivek Wadhwa, distinguished fellow at Carnegie Mellon University, discusses how the expansion of artificial intelligence may affect US employment.

Resource availability: AI researchers should have access to federal data, algorithms and computer processing.

The executive order gives the NSTC Select Committee 90 days to pass along recommendations to the NSTC for how to implement such a program.
