Trump to call for investment in artificial intelligence

The Donald Trump administration will direct agencies to prioritise AI investments in research and development increase access to federal data and models for that research and prepare workers to adapt to the era of AI

The U.S.is the global leader in AI technology right now, but other countries are catching up fast.

According to Reuters, the President is set to sign a new executive order which will see federal government agencies not only invest more, but also promote and train AI solutions.

While there was no specific funding announced for the initiative, an administration official did reveal that it called for improved reporting and tracking of funds spent on AI research and development.

"Maintaining American leadership in AI requires a concerted effort to promote advancements in technology and innovation, while protecting American technology, economic and national security, civil liberties, privacy, and American values and enhancing worldwide and industry collaboration with foreign partners and allies", the Monday executive order reads.

Trump signed the directive Monday.

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




"It is the policy of the United States Government to sustain and enhance the scientific, technological, and economic leadership position of the United States in AI R&D and deployment through a coordinated Federal Government strategy, the American AI Initiative".

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.

Create resources: It will seek to make federal data, computer models, and computing resources available to AI researchers.

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be in charge of determining the technical guidelines to establish "reliable, robust, trustworthy, secure, portable, and interoperable AI systems".

The White House plan doesn't include any funding details.

Retrain workers: It will ask agencies to prioritize preparing workers for the changes brought about by AI through apprenticeships, skills programs, and fellowships.
