Reps. Anthony Gonzales, R-Ohio; Anna Eshoo, D-Calif.; and Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., have unveiled a bill that seeks to form a committee that will draft a roadmap for a national artificial intelligence research portal.

The National AI Research Resource Task Force Act will work to gather a group of experts from the government, industry and academia to plan the development, implementation, management and sustainment of a cloud-based research portal, the office of Anna Eshoo said Thursday.

Eshoo noted the bill will collect compute power, educational resources and data to support AI researchers in the U.S. Eshoo filed a letter in March to the House Appropriations Committee to ask for the provision of funds for AI research and development efforts.

Sens. Gary Peters, D-Mich.; Cory Gardner, R-Colo.; and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., have introduced the Advancing Artificial Intelligence Research Act of 2020, a bill that will drive an AI research program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
