Statement of Support for the Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act

by Joshua New

WASHINGTON—Today the Center for Data Innovation welcomed the introduction of S. 1558, the Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act (AI-IA), which would organize a coordinated national strategy for developing AI and provide a $2.2 billion federal investment over five years to build an AI-ready workforce. The Center issued the following statement from senior analyst Josh New:

“The future of U.S. competitiveness in AI will depend on how effectively policymakers support key inputs for innovation, particularly R&D. Thus far, efforts to support AI R&D have been lackluster. By providing clear, concrete steps for the federal government to take to accelerate and strengthen AI R&D, Senators Heinrich and Portman’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act (AI-IA), like its companion bill in the House, would secure the United States’ status as the global leader in R&D.”
