Trump Signs Nebulous AI Executive Order With $0 Funding Attached

U.S. President Donald Trump

President Trump is expected to sign an executive order for an "American AI Initiative" today, which aims to prioritize AI development in the U.S.

The order, which comes amid concerns about China's ambitions to dominate the sector and the likelihood of disruption for workers as the technology automates millions of jobs, doesn't outline specific funding goals, but says it aims to ensure that AI develops in a manner that reflects USA values and to push training for the future workforce. While the order states that it hopes to "promote scientific discovery, economic competitiveness, and national security", it provides little in the way of financial support for that endeavor.

"AI is something that touches every aspect of people's lives", a senior administration official said on the call. 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.

"What we can do is come together as a White House... to provide high-level guidance to the agencies to give them at least a roadmap to use as they think about the issues that you've discussed, including ethics", a Trump administration official said Monday, according to The Hill.

Saudis don't know where Khashoggi's body is, foreign minister says
Al-Jubeir claimed Saudi investigators still don't know the location of Khashoggi's body. Al Jubeir called US criticism of Saudi leadership "a red line".

Establish standards: It will direct the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to create standards that foster the development of "reliable, robust, trustworthy, secure, portable, and interoperable AI systems". Additionally, the directive will authorize expanded access to government data for researchers to help advance the technologies. Eighteen other countries have beaten America to the punch in that regard.

The order directs federal agencies to make government data and computing resources more available to artificial intelligence experts while maintaining security and confidentiality.

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