House Bill Would Establish AI National Security Commission

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-New York) has introduced a bill that would establish an independent commission to review artificial intelligence technology advancements and identify the country’s AI needs.

The National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence Act of 2018 would also require the future group to recommend strategies for the White House and Congress to facilitate AI adoption in the federal government, the House Armed Services Committee said Wednesday.

“AI has already produced many things in use today, including web search, object recognition in photos or videos, prediction models, self-driving cars, and automated robotics,” said Stefanik.

“It is critical to our national security but also to the development of our broader economy that the United States becomes the global leader in further developing this cutting edge technology,” she added.

The commission would provide AI-focused recommendations encompassing competitiveness, technological advantage, cooperation, research investment, workforce and education, international law and data privacy.
