The Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration is seeking information on industry concerns regarding current international policies, regulations and other measures that may impact U.S. exports of artificial intelligence technologies.
In a request for comments posted on the Federal Register, ITA calls on stakeholders to provide input on the current status of the global AI market to inform future efforts to promote U.S. competitiveness in the emerging technology space.
ITA seeks to have a better understanding of the global AI landscape to identify opportunities for increasing U.S. export competitiveness for AI-enabled technologies.
Specifically, the agency wants to learn how international policies can impact future AI design and development, what trade policies support small businesses that export AI products and services and how the government can protect intellectual property rights for U.S.-made technologies in overseas transactions.
Industry leaders, researchers, academia and civil society can submit comments until Oct. 17.
