Public Input and Next Steps on the Future of Artificial Intelligence

Today, OSTP is releasing public comments on AI, sharing insights from events across the country, and announcing a new White House event on AI this fall.

As part of the White House Future of Artificial Intelligence Initiative, OSTP is releasing the public comments submitted on artificial intelligence, sharing insights from five events across the country over the past months, and announcing a new White House event on artificial intelligence at the Frontiers Conference in October, 2016.

In June, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) announced a new Request for Information (RFI) on Artificial Intelligence (AI), to solicit feedback on how the United States can best prepare for the future of AI. We received 161 responses from a range of stakeholders, including individuals, academics and researchers, non-profit organizations, and industry. We are grateful for the insights and expertise invested by the public in submitting these responses. Today, we are releasing the public comments from the RFI, downloadable in human-readable PDF or machine-readable JSON.

The RFI follows an announcement by OSTP of a series of new actions as a part of a White House Future of Artificial Intelligence initiative. Read more about our work on this topic in this Medium post.
