Artificial intelligence uses data-based algorithms that enable computers to simulate human decisions and perform tasks such as recognition, imagery, or language processing, and are expected to revolutionize innovation in transportation, healthcare, and other industries. But at the same time, artificial intelligence is also highly dependent on access to large amounts of data to create efficient algorithms.
Currently, the United States is in a leading position in the field of artificial intelligence. But some experts say China may overtake the United States in the next few years. This is one of the reasons why the US government plans to promote the development of artificial intelligence.
According to the report, while increasing research and development efforts, the US government plans to develop the latest regulatory guidelines for the development of artificial intelligence to build public trust in the technology.
In addition, the US government will take steps to help those who may be affected by artificial intelligence, such as more effective training. Experts believe that artificial intelligence may subvert many labor groups, such as truck drivers, who may lose their jobs because of the emergence of self-driving cars.
Last week, Trump briefly talked about this effort in his State of the Union address. He said that he will cooperate with lawmakers in investing in cutting-edge industries in the future. Trump also said: "This is not an option, it is necessary."
According to government officials, Trump’s State of the Union address indicates that he is pushing the government to accelerate the development of emerging technologies, including artificial intelligence, 5G communications and quantum meters.
