The United States is Becoming a Technology Superpower: The State of Artificial Intelligence

Last year, the Government launched the American Artificial Intelligence Initiative to support AI innovation that will increase prosperity, enhance national security, and improve quality of life for American citizens. This is seeking to invest in AI research and development by collaborating with industry, academia, international allies and partners and other non-federal entities. This is part of the strategic plan to unleash AI resources to enhance access to high quality Federal data, modelling and computing models to maintain and improve privacy and confidentiality.

The initiative is also seeking to remove barriers to AI innovation and train an AI-ready workforce. The US is seeking to empower current and future generations of American workers through apprenticeships, skills programs, and educations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The President has recognised that, “Continued American leadership in AI is of paramount importance to maintaining the economic and national security of the United States and to shaping the global evolution of AI in a manner consistent with our Nation’s values, policies, and priorities.”

The significant investment in AI research and development will likely promote the US in becoming a technology superpower.
