How Responsible AI is Moving America Forward

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is moving America forward.  We’ve been using AI safely and responsibly for decades to navigate traffic, search the internet, enhance research, and discover new movies and music.  Today, AI is being used to predict severe weather more accurately, protect critical infrastructure, defend against cyber threats, and accelerate the development of new medical treatments, including

life-saving vaccines and ways to detect earlier signs of cancer.

However, recognizing and addressing the genuine risks associated with AI is crucial for its responsible advancement.  When guided by ethics, transparency, and fairness, AI can spark creativity and help us usher in a more prosperous and sustainable future for all Americans.

TechNet’s “AI for America” initiative, which launched this week, showcases how AI is being used to improve lives, grow our economy, and keep us safe.  Learn more in this week’s Tech At Work.
