The US administration has released a comprehensive report on the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI). According to the White House blog, the report surveys the current state of AI, its existing and potential applications, and the questions that progress in AI raise for society and public policy.
The report includes a large number of recommendations related to the need for society, in general, and federal agencies, in particular, to pay attention to the impact of AI in the economy, security, safety and quality of life of the countries. These recommendations include, among others:
- investigating further the consequences of AI and automation in the job market;
- including ethics, security, safety, privacy and related topics in the university curricula of AI, machine learning and computer science;
- closely monitoring and reporting the advances in this area, by the subcommittee on AI and machine learning;
- prioritizing basic and long-term AI research by the Federal Government.
The report provides a rather comprehensive analysis of the impact of AI in fields as diverse as the job growth, national security, transportation safety and social justice, and may contribute to raising awareness in the society about the impact of this important technology.
