The government official said in a conference call that the plan did not announce specific sources of funding. He also said the plan calls for better reporting and tracking of research and development expenditures related to AI.
The plan aims to ensure that the United States maintains R&D advantages in artificial intelligence and related fields, such as advanced manufacturing and quantum computing.
Last week, Trump said in his State of the Union address that he was willing to work with members of Congress to make new and important infrastructure investments, including investments in future cutting-edge industries, which he called "necessary".
Enterprises and experts say that AI and deep machine learning have raised some concerns, such as the impact of AI on control, privacy and network security, and the possible loss of jobs in various industries.
