Join the ACT-IAC Emerging Technology Community of Interest for their regularly scheduled member meeting featuring a discussion of Artificial Intelligence strategy from the Executive Branch to DoD.

Michael Kratsios, the deputy assistant to the president for technology policy, explained in Wired op-ed why America needs a national AI strategy.  Darrell West at the Brookings Institution published a blog assessing the executive order which will be part of the discussion.  The Department of Defense also developed its own Artificial Intelligence Strategy in 2018.
