The White House is expected within the coming weeks to introduce an action plan on 5G technology, artificial intelligence and the National Quantum Initiative Act’s "first deliverables,” The Hill reported Wednesday.
An administration official told the publication the Trump administration could release such a plan designed to keep the country’s research-and-development leadership in those tech areas.
President Trump said in his State of the Union address that he backs investments in the “industries of the future.”
"President Trump’s commitment to American leadership in artificial intelligence, 5G wireless, quantum science, and advanced manufacturing will ensure that these technologies serve to benefit the American people and that the American innovation ecosystem remains the envy of the world for generations to come,” Michael Kratsios, deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, said in an email statement.
