Google, Amazon, Facebook to attend White House AI meeting

In the future artificial intelligence may overtake every aspect of human life

The Obama administration published two comprehensive reports on AI: Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and the Economy.

The White House convened more than 100 business leaders - in sectors ranging from energy and manufacturing to health care, technology and financial services - along with senior government officials and experts for a summit to address issues including supporting national research and development, helping the American workforce to take advantage of AI and removing barriers to AI innovation in the US. He says today's AI summit is an encouraging sign that the US can maintain its leadership role in the industry.

Naveen Rao, who leads the AI product unit at chipmaker Intel, said the United States enjoys "a nice lead that happened organically" and with help from prior investments going back decades.

As the latest indication of this, the White House announced the creation of a Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence during an organized AI summit of industry and academic partners Thursday. The development of AI is also fuelling concerns about bias in data use and whether the USA sector can stay ahead of fierce competition with China.

China has also said that it aims to be the world's leader in AI technologies by 2030. Instead, Kratsios, a deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, detailed the administration's AI strategy Thursday.

Nevertheless, the US with its unique strengths in AI in both industry and academia should be able to maintain its leadership role, especially with a close coordination between industry and government initiatives.

Dean Garfield, president of the Information Technology Industry Council trade group, told Bloomberg TV on Thursday that "jobs will change and where those jobs are may move".

While Seamans said the USA doesn't need to take a centralized approach, he said it could be useful for administration officials to discuss the impacts of the new technology, especially for consumers and workers whose jobs are becoming obsolete or who will require new skills.

"This is not a call for a swarm of new laws and regulations", Krzanich said. It will also look for federal government partnership opportunities with companies and academia and open up government data and resources to spur AI development.
