President Donald Trump on Monday signed an executive order to launch a new program that will direct federal resources toward the development of artificial intelligence in order to build up economic and national security and improve the quality of life of citizens.

The American AI Initiative has five key principles and one of those is directing federal agencies to prioritize investments in research-and-development efforts related to AI, the White House said Monday.
