Trump administration to allow AI to “freely develop”

Trump’s Technology policy advisor Michael Kratsios said that the administration will not stand in the way of the development of artificial intelligence in the country, at the same time acknowledging that the technology will displace some jobs, Reuters reports.

Kratsios said the Trump administration does not want to dictate “what is researched and developed.”

“To the greatest degree possible, we will allow scientists and technologists to freely develop their next great inventions right here in the United States,” he said, adding that “to a certain degree, job displacement is inevitable. But we can’t sit idle, hoping eventually the market will sort it out. We must do what Americans have always done: adapt.”

Experts are worried that AI and machine learning raise ethical concerns about control, privacy, cybersecurity and the future of work.

The White House has said it would create a new committee on AI, which will include the most senior research and development officials in the US government.
