On Tuesday, the White House officially announced the establishment of the national AI initiative office, led by Lynne Parker, deputy chief technology officer of the United States, to implement the national AI strategy. The main responsibility of the office is to coordinate the AI research and policy-making of the government, industry and academia.
The office of science and technology policy of the White House was established according to the national AI initiative act of 2020, which aims to ensure that a series of policies and initiatives of the United States’ leading position in the global technology field can be implemented.
Michael kratsios, national chief technology officer of the United States, said in a speech: “the national AI initiative office will become an integral part of the federal government’s AI work in the coming years, and will become the central hub of national AI research and policy for the entire American innovation ecosystem.”
Earlier this month, as part of the defense authorization act 2021, the United States also passed the national artificial intelligence initiative act 2020, which also codifies the U.S. AI initiative to increase research investment, improve access to computing and data resources, develop technical standards, build a workforce, and interact with allies.
Now the White House Based Special Committee on artificial intelligence has been expanded and become a permanent body to supervise the initiative. The National Institute of artificial intelligence and the national artificial intelligence research and development strategic plan have also been codified. The goal is to provide national AI research resources for existing computing power and data sets, as well as annual AI budget summaries for all federal investments.
The future industries act has also been incorporated into the NDAA and requires a plan to double the investment in artificial intelligence R & D, as proposed in the trump administration’s final budget proposal.
