SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: In 2016, the National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan was released by NITRD to guide government efforts in AI R&D. The plan called for seven strategic aims: Strategy 1: Make long-term investments in AI research. Strategy 2: Develop effective methods for human-AI collaboration. Strategy 3: Understand and address the ethical, legal, and societal implications of AI. Strategy 4: Ensure the safety and security of AI systems. Strategy 5: Develop shared public datasets and environments for AI training and testing. Strategy 6: Measure and evaluate AI technologies through standards and benchmarks. Strategy 7: Better understand the national AI R&D workforce needs. Subsequently, on May 10, 2018, the White House chartered the Select Committee under the NSTC in order to improve the coordination of Federal efforts related to AI and ensure continued U.S. leadership in AI. PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48655 Because AI is a cutting-edge technology with realized or potential impact on many parts of society and science, and both the private sector and the Federal government continue to invest heavily in AI Research and Development (R&D), NITRD NCO and the Select Committee seek to update the strategic plan to reflect current priorities. Following the receipt of comments, the Select Committee, in consultation with the NSTC Subcommittee on Machine Learning and AI (MLAI) and the NITRD AI R&D Interagency Working Group, will consider the input provided in updating the strategic plan.
