Bill introduced to study AI and provide competitiveness through P3s
A new bill, the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act of 2018, was introduced by a New York congresswoman that would create a commission focused on studying artificial intelligence and its impact on the country and national security. The AI legislation proposes an independent commission to examine artificial intelligence advances on a national level and provide recommendations on how to apply the technology to the federal government.
The commission would deliver annual recommendations through 2020. The commission’s recommendations range from crafting data standards to public-private partnership (P3) competitiveness and research opportunities, in addition to workforce recruitment incentives. The bill has been referred to the House Committee on Armed Services.
