Washington, D.C. –  TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, today submitted comments to the Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) request for information on developing a national strategy on artificial intelligence (AI). The following can be attributed to TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore:

“Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize how we live and work and help us solve the most significant challenges of our time by enhancing productivity, expanding access to important services, improving product innovation, and powering medical and climate breakthroughs. A national AI strategy must consider these significant benefits to society and ensure the U.S. remains the leader in the development and deployment of responsible AI.

“It’s crucial the government works with experts to mitigate AI risks and concerns without stifling innovation. One way to do that is by establishing and funding the National AI Research Resource (NAIRR). This will lower the barrier to entry for AI research, help develop AI recommendations, and spur greater economic prosperity. A national AI strategy also must support student learning and upskilling opportunities for Americans to succeed in today’s modern economy. It should also bridge federal government needs and private sector capabilities through the creation of a National Digital Reserve Corps, something we have long supported.

“TechNet will continue working with the Administration, federal agencies, and Congress to develop a national AI strategy and to put in place the proper risk-based safeguards that will allow the U.S. to win the next era of innovation.”
