Investing in Artificial Intelligence: A Path for US Leadership

How the nation can better prepare its computing infrastructure to meet AI’s challenges and opportunities. I am fortunate today to be in Washington with leaders from three dozen companies, including many of our close partners, to discuss with administration officials how the U.S. can continue to lead the world in research, development and the adoption of artificial intelligence. I’d like to thank the Office of Science and Technology Policy for convening this important meeting. 

AI is becoming the world’s most important computational tool — applicable to a wide variety of industries including transportation, energy and healthcare. But AI is enormously demanding in terms of computation — it requires processing hundreds of millions of data points to extract insight. Therefore, it’s important for us to discuss how to improve our nation’s computing infrastructure to support AI and maintain leadership in this space.
