"Maintaining American leadership in AI requires a concerted effort to promote advancements in technology and innovation, while protecting American technology, economic and national security, civil liberties, privacy, and American values and enhancing global and industry collaboration with foreign partners and allies", the Monday executive order reads.

President Trump is expected to sign an executive order today announcing the "American AI Initiative", reports the MIT Technology Review.

"Continued American leadership in Artificial Intelligence is of paramount importance to maintaining the economic and national security of the United States", Trump said. America is a bit late to the game when it comes to government action, falling behind countries like China, Canada, and France who have pledged millions of dollars and jobs to foster research and innovation.

Though there's no specific budget behind the "American Artificial Intelligence Initiative", the president wants government agencies to invest in research, promotion, and training to help workers prepare for the era of AI. AI researchers will need to have computer models, computing resources, and federal data to kickstart projects.

It also says federal agencies will establish guidance to ensure the new technologies are developed in a safe, trustworthy way. The White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy said in a statement during the speech on February 5 that AI was among the industries Trump was referring to, alongside 5G broadband, advanced manufacturing and others.

"AI is something that touches every aspect of people's lives", a senior administration official said on a conference call, recently.
