Members of the Interagency Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence held their inaugural meeting with discussions on regulatory efforts to boost AI research, training and partnerships with other working groups.

The committee discussed how it would further support the AI research community, as well as how it would collaborate with other AI-centered organizations such as the Subcommittee on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and AI Interagency Working Group, The Office of Science and Technology Policy said Wednesday.

The select committee also gave attention to several AI-related programs within the government, such as the Energy Department’s recent launch of the Summit supercomputer and the formation of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center to deliver AI-enabled capabilities within the Defense Department.

Michael Kratsios, deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, said the U.S. government provides its full support for research and development efforts in AI for the benefit of the American people.

The White House established the Interagency Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence under the National Science and Technology Council in May after the Trump administration set its R&D priority on AI.

The committee is made up of senior government officials in the R&D field such as those from the National Science Foundation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and Office of Science and Technology Policy.
