The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has launched the National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office.
The Office will oversee and implement the United States national AI strategy and will serve as the central hub for Federal coordination and collaboration in AI research and policymaking across the government, as well as with private sector, academia, and other stakeholders.
According to an official statement, “The National AI Initiative Office is established in accordance with the recently passed National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Act of 2020.”
The Act codified into law and expanded many existing AI policies and initiatives at the White House and throughout the Federal Government.
In addition, the bipartisan Industries of the Future Act recently passed by Congress requires a plan to double Federal AI R&D investment.
