Trump to call for investment in artificial intelligence

President Donald Trump waves after arriving on Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Friday Feb. 8 2019. The President was returning to the White House after his annual physical exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Cent

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order later today that will direct the usa government to take a more active role in the development and regulation of artificial intelligence. According to the MIT Technology Review, the plan has five key aims: Redirect funding, create resources, establish standards, retrain workers, and engage internationally.

Trump signed the directive Monday. However, while the goals are lofty, the details are vague. The administration should request more funding from Congress to expand efforts, implement a light touch regulatory scheme, expand AI adoption within the government, and avoid roadblocks such as AI export restrictions.

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.

To prepare our workforce with the skills needed to adapt and thrive in this new age of AI, the American AI Initiative calls for agencies to prioritize fellowship and training programs to help American workers gain AI-relevant skills through apprenticeships, skills programs, fellowships, and education in computer science and other growing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.

The first principle emphasizes that the US should "drive technological breakthroughs in AI across the Federal Government, industry, and academia in order to promote scientific discovery, economic competitiveness, and national security".

Under the American AI Initiative, federal agencies will be asked to "prioritize AI investments" and to report spending on machine learning projects more transparency. It bases these conclusions on the amount of patents each country has, among other things, and IBM is the biggest company with nearly 9,000 patents.

In his 2019 State of the Union address, President Trump stressed the importance of investing in the cutting-edge Industries of the Future.

He has since filed for custody of his daughter in the wake of the alleged incident. The reason is simple: the Steelers won't want to do anything to help the Patriots.


The order however stops short of specific funding or a detailed strategy for deployment of artificial intelligence.

America is widely considered the world leader in artificial intelligence - however, many believe the Chinese government's vast access to data might give it an advantage in the coming years. Otherwise, companies have largely been left to their own devices to determine what is considered an ethical use of AI.

Many universities in the USA, including UTSA, are attempting to hire in order to build a larger pipeline of talent.

"China in many ways has very different values than we have in the West about things like surveillance, privacy, democracy, property rights", he said.

The US government has committed itself to playing a leading role in the global proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

Economists have also warned that AI advances could displace many USA workers in the coming years - something that Trump's plan doesn't do enough to address, said Bradford Newman, an attorney who is pushing for a new regulatory body to govern AI issues.
