U.S. President Donald Trump is set to sign an Executive Order Monday launching a government AI initiative. According to the MIT Technology Review, the plan has five key aims: Redirect funding, create resources, establish standards, retrain workers, and engage internationally. However, the initiative, details of which were released ahead of President Trump’s signing, reportedly failed to provide much substantive detail or cash.
The initiative is designed to boost America’s AI industry by reallocating funding, creating new resources, and devising ways for the country to shape the technology even as it becomes increasingly global. However, while the goals are lofty, the details are vague. And it will not include a big lump sum of funding for AI research
