Trump's Artificial Intelligence Order to Progress "AI Race"

Recommended Posts

Trump's artificial intelligence executive order will ensure America doesn't lose the AI race to China

Source: https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/trumps-artificial-intelligence-executive-order-will-ensure-america-doesnt-lose-the-ai-race-to-china?fbclid=IwAR0uqnw4UO-6G6u4iqQUHNyyeKBZrWjr2BP6t-ifMi-zvxH-qQUoWVjkvyI



“In July 2017, [China] unveiled a plan to become the world leader in AI aiming to create an industry worth $150 billion to its economy by 2030, and two Chinese cities promised to invest $7 billion in the effort,” The New York Times recently reported.


The U.S., on the other hand, has largely relied on private corporations to advance research into AI. But this model has come into question recently as numerous Big Tech companies, such as Google, have refused to work on AI technologies that could have beneficial military applications.

Probably for good reason. Few days ago the OpenAI or whatnot was considered too dangerous. 


The president’s new executive order serves as a direct response to China’s initiative by instructing the federal government to prioritize research and development of America’s own artificial intelligence capabilities.


“Continued American leadership in artificial intelligence is of paramount importance to maintaining the economic and national security of the United States,” President Trump rightly noted while signing the order.


According to the White House, the new initiative will give AI researchers more resources for innovation, encourage evolving applications of AI, and protect “critical AI technology” from foreign entities.


In addition, the executive order will direct federal agencies to help U.S. workers develop AI-related skills and promote educational programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Have to say this Fox site is pretty awful, but the main point is that Trump signed on this executive order (rightly so). I'm not so sure the US is actually that far behind compared to China, however there would be a strong reluctance to have their advanced AI control military equipment, not just from politicians, but the general public. If this stuff goes wrong it's not too far to 2025 when the Terminators take-over. Call me a tin-foil hat person if you like, I believe we already have the capability to use people to control the equipment - so why not provide employment and common sense?

AI can be dangerous, but seeing as how much YouTube's community guidelines and copyright infringement AI has f**ked up lately (for example), we need to make it better.


I like this move by Trump.  Letting other countries advance AI technologies without meaningfully doing it ourselves is a threat to national security.  AI will become truthfully intelligent before it becomes sentient, and so we need to be prepared for the former first.

We all know what happens when AI goes out of Control -> Skynet, since 1984/85 (depending on where you're from)...


Seems like that future might actually come true, somewhat...
