The US Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has updated its National AI R&D Strategic Plan for the first time since 2019, without making enormous changes.
"The Biden-Harris Administration is announcing new efforts that will advance the research, development, and deployment of responsible artificial intelligence that protects individuals' rights and safety and delivers results for the American people," the White House declared this week.
The updated plan [PDF] outlines strategies that are largely the same as those recommended under the previous administration. This version adds a ninth strategy – exploring and fostering international cooperation to develop AI technologies affecting global issues, such as the environment and manufacturing.
It also changes one of the plan's strategies: 2019's "Make long-term investments in AI research" becomes "Make long-term investments in fundamental and responsible AI research" in the 2023 document.
