National Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Institutes: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has advanced tremendously and today promisespersonalizedhealthcare; enhanced national security; improved transportation; and more effective education, to name just a few benefits. Increased computing power, the availability of large datasets and streaming data, and algorithmic advances in machine learning (ML) have made it possible for AI research and development to create new sectors of the economy and revitalize industries. Continued advancement, enabled bysustainedfederal investment and channeled toward issues of national importance, holds the potentialfor further economic impact and quality-of-life improvements. The 2019 update tothe National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan, informed by visioning activities in the scientific community as well as interaction with the public,identifies as its first strategic objective the need to make long-term investments in AI research in areas with the potential for long-term payoffs in AI.The President’s Council of Advisors for Science and Technology has published Recommendations for Strengthening American Leadership in Industries of the Future, including AI, and calls for new and sustained research in AI to drive science and technology progress.The National AI Research Institutes program enables longer-term research and U.S. leadership in AI through the creation of AI Research Institutes.
