David Hoffman, associate general counsel and global privacy officer at Intel, has said government and industry should work together on a national strategy that would advance the adoption of artificial intelligence.
Hoffman wrote in a FedScoop article published Tuesday the national AI strategy should address four areas and one is to foster AI innovation across government and industry.
Federal agencies should come up with their own strategies to incite discussions about AI and develop ethical policies and guidelines with regard to the use of the technology, he noted.
The national strategy should advance the development and training of a strong workforce, promote data sharing and open data sources and establish a supporting legal environment.
“Additionally, to ease burdens and protect U.S. innovation, federal agencies should avoid requiring companies to transfer or provide access to technologies, source code, algorithms or encryption keys as conditions of doing business,” Hoffman added.
