The U.S., one of the early starters to identify artificial intelligence as a strategic asset at the fag end of the Obama administration, appears adrift with regards to this promising technology, courtesy the indifference and lack of vision by the Trump government.

As international peers and rivals roll-out heavily-funded AI plans for research, data-sharing and setting ethical standards, America’s shying away from any interference into the technology could cost economy, wage growth and job creation, writes MIT Technology Review.

Experts stress that the U.S. should invest more in AI, brace for job losses, nurture talent, prioritize education and guide regulation to avoid being left behind and losing out to the world community.
