White House to Create Artificial Intelligence Task Force

The private path
"As artificial intelligence transforms everything from agriculture to manufacturing to transportation, the potential for AI remains breathtaking", Kratsios said in prepared remarks.
At a White House AI summit that brought together representative from 40 companies including Google, Facebook, and Intel to address issues related to the technology, Michael Kratsios, the deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, said the government wouldn't restrict AI research and development. "We didn't regulate flight before the Wright Brothers took off at Kitty Hawk".
President Donald Trump hasn't said much, if anything, about artificial intelligence, but his administration is warming up to the idea of investing more in the technology and finding ways to build new skills for the USA workers it replaces.
The White House, which has previously clashed with scientists over issues such as climate change, conservation and budget cuts, said it would create a new committee on AI.
John Holdren, who was the top presidential science adviser during the Obama administration, warned that the Trump administration's late entry into outlining its approach to AI reflects broader concerns about its commitment to technological advancement.
AI and deep machine learning raise ethical concerns about control, privacy, cybersecurity, and the future of work, companies and experts say.
"Erecting barriers to innovation does not stop the future", Kratsios said. A report last month from the U.S. Congressional Research Service described China as a "leading competitor" in using AI to develop military applications, including autonomous vehicles and computer systems that can make faster and better-informed decisions. It will be comprised of the most senior research and development officials across the United States government, tasked with looking at R&D priorities and better coordinating federal investments.
"This is not a call for a swarm of new laws and regulations", Krzanich said.
Arvind Krishna, senior vice-president and director of IBM Research who attended the meeting, said in a statement that he emphasised that AI should be able to explain the predictions and determinations it reaches "so people can trust it". That perspective seems to have shifted, as Kratsios argued Thursday that job displacement is "inevitable" and that "we can't sit idle, hoping eventually the market will sort it out". STEM refers to a group of academic disciplines comprising science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
"We've got to invest heavily in training people to be able to work", said Garfield, whose group represents several companies attending the event including Google, Amazon.com and International Business Machines Corp.
"Today's White House meeting is critical to ensuring the potential of AI is achieved and advanced in a fashion that is broadly beneficial to Americans", said Dean Garfield, president of Information Technology Industry Council, a lobbying tech firm.

The agreement will strengthen Nestle's position in the United States, where it ranks fifth with less than 5 percent of the market. Nestle chief executive Mark Schneider described it as a "significant step". "This is all about growth", Schneider told analysts.
