Trump orders government to prioritize artificial intelligence

US President Donald Trump ordered the government to give greater priority to artificial intelligence but critics said the executive order lacked key details

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.

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order directing federal agencies to prioritize research and development in artificial intelligence.

As The New York Times reported on Monday, "the order does not set aside funds for A.I. research and development, and the administration provided few details on how it will put its new policies into effect".

This technology-promoting initiative calls for protecting the advantage of the United States in AI "against strategic competitors and foreign adversaries", but without specifying its competitors or adversaries.

"I am eager to work with you on legislation to deliver new and important infrastructure investment, including investments in the cutting edge industries of the future", Trump said in a White House Office of Science and Technology (OSTP) press statement.

The race for AI dominance is heating up and other countries will likely make similar investments into AI and other emerging technologies to remain competitive.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday directing the US government to prioritize artificial intelligence in its research and development spending, the White House said. The administration says it's up to Congress to appropriate money.

Though there's no specific budget behind the "American Artificial Intelligence Initiative", the president wants government agencies to invest in research, promotion, and training to help workers prepare for the era of AI.

The plan, called the American AI Initiative, is meant to enhance national and economic security and improve Americans' quality of life. AI researchers will need to have computer models, computing resources, and federal data to kickstart projects.
