Trump signs executive order promoting artificial intelligence
The initiative aims to make sure the US keeps its research and development advantage in AI and related areas, such as advanced manufacturing and quantum computing.
Mr Trump, in his State of the Union speech last week, said he was willing to work with lawmakers to deliver new and important infrastructure investment, including investments in the cutting-edge industries of the future, calling it a “necessity”.
“AI is something that touches every aspect of people’s lives,” a senior administration official said on the call. “What this initiative attempts to do is to bring all those together under one umbrella and show the promise of this technology for the American people,” the official said.
