National Strategy for Machine IntelligenceMachine Intelligence (MI) is poised to create profound changes to our lives, jobs, and economy. In terms of the breadth and scale of impact, MI will rival or exceed past technological revolutions while potentially altering centers of economic power and regional and global influence. Many countries are already making significant policy decisions to prepare for the impact of MI, and investing in MI research and development to outpace allies and competitors across economic and national security dimensions. If the U.S. wants to avoid being left behind in the “MI Revolution” we need to develop a coordinated national strategy that covers research and development, industrial specialization, and the social impacts of these technologies.
These changes will necessitate a response from the U.S. government. CSIS in partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton is undertaking a project to address the implications of MI. This study will result in a framework for determining which guiding principles should shape U.S. policy in response to the growth of MI applications in defense, education, healthcare, and the economy. The study will offer recommendations for how the U.S. can maintain a competitive advantage in MI and navigate the risks and challenges associated with it.
