Artificial Intelligence: What Can We Learn from Other Countries’ Approaches?
The Institute for International Economic Policy at George Washington University, the Software & Information Industry Association, and the Institute for International Science and Technology Policy are delighted to co-present a free luncheon event:

Artificial Intelligence: What Can We Learn from Other Countries’ Approaches?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are changing the way that we live, work and learn. In many countries, policymakers and business leaders recognize the transformational importance of AI and are developing policies to ensure that their country is competitive in AI. To be competitive in AI requires not only significant capital, but also skills, research, an adequate supply of data, and effective governance policies. Hence, the United States has the “Artificial Intelligence for the American People” strategy. The EU has a Euros 20 billion AI investment strategy and the European AI Alliance. Canadian officials have drafted a Pan-Canadian AI Strategy and the Superclusters initiative. Germany has prepared a new plan, investments and a marketing strategy for AI services. In addition, Japan has created an initiative to fund collaborative AI projects between start-ups and large companies.

This event will examine what policymakers can learn from these distinct government approaches. Should governments take the lead in AI investment and in prioritizing areas for research, development and commercialization? Or should the private sector lead with taxpayer investment in basic AI R & D and public-private partnerships where needed?

Please join George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs, the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), and the Institute for International Science and Technology Policy for a lunchtime discussion on these important issues.
