White House launches AI portal
The Trump administration this week launched the AI.gov website, a collection of federal policies and strategies that are helping accelerate the development of artificial intelligence.
It features links and resources related to the Feb. 11 executive order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence, as well as a summary of the May 2018 White House AI summit that brought together representatives from industry, government and academia to discuss research and development efforts, workforce development, regulatory barriers and sector-specific AI applications.
The site also links to the R&D-relevant sections of the administration's proposed fiscal year 2020 budget, a list of key committees and agencies involved with AI and sector-specific examples of AI-based applications, such as fraud detection in the financial services market and improved weather forecasting. A section on workforce development links to agency fellowship, training and service programs.
