Trump to Sign Artificial Intelligence Order

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

The aim of the new initiative is to boost AI development and funding in the US and also to ensure that America is a leader when it comes to helping shape global artificial intelligence policies.

"Continued American leadership in Artificial Intelligence is of paramount importance to maintaining the economic and national security of the United States", Trump noted in a press statement attached to the order.

"Heads of implementing agencies that also perform or fund R&D (AI R&D agencies), shall consider AI as an agency R&D priority", the order states, noting, "Heads of such agencies shall take this priority into account when developing budget proposals and planning for the use of funds in Fiscal Year 2020 and in future years".

President Trump plans to sign an executive order that focuses on promoting artificial intelligence - but unlike his most famous science-based initiative, which called for an unrealistic "Space Force", this one is being slammed by critics for insufficient boldness.

"We can not sit idly by and presume that our leadership is guaranteed", according to a statement released by White House on Monday. It aims to set guidelines to ensure the new technologies are trustworthy. The White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy said in a statement during the speech on February 5 that AI was among the industries Trump was referring to, alongside 5G broadband, advanced manufacturing and others.

MIT Technology Review reported that the "American AI Initiative" has five main goals: Redirect investments, develop AI research resources, create AI standards, prepare American workers for AI changes, and engage in worldwide AI efforts.

The so-called American AI Initiative does not directly target the communist country, but some experts believe the approach leaves no doubt about the administration's designs.

Retrain workers: It will ask agencies to prioritize preparing workers for the changes brought about by AI through apprenticeships, skills programs, and fellowships.

"This initiative will devote the full resources of the federal government to develop AI", a senior administration official told reporters Sunday, according to The Hill.

But so far, New Zealand is behind other countries in encouraging AI, and creating an ethical framework, Callaghan boss Victoria Crone says.
