  • Artificial Intelligence R&D Interagency Working Group

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) advances the ability of computer systems to perform tasks that have traditionally required human intelligence; this includes R&D in machine learning (ML), computer vision, natural language processing/understanding, intelligent decision support systems, and autonomous systems, as well as the novel application of these techniques to various domains.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) advances the ability of computer systems to perform tasks that have traditionally required human intelligence; this includes R&D in machine learning (ML), computer vision, natural language processing/understanding, intelligent decision support systems, and autonomous systems, as well as the novel application of these techniques to various domains.




Overview

The Artificial Intelligence R&D Interagency Working Group (AI R&D IWG) was formed in 2018 to coordinate Federal AI R&D across 32 participating agencies and to support activities tasked by both the NSTC Select Committee on AI and the Subcommittee on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (MLAI). Through the NITRD Subcommittee, the AI IWG will coordinate AI activities to advance the mission of the National AI Initiative Office (NAIIO).

Guided by the eight strategic priorities of the National AI R&D Strategic Plan: 2019 Update, the IWG gathers information from AI experts to ensure that government investment in AI R&D results in innovative applications to address the Nation's challenges, take advantage of its opportunities, and promote U.S. leadership and global competitiveness. Details of many recent and ongoing Federal AI R&D programs and applications are available in the 2016-2019 AI R&D Progress Report.  The Video and Image Analytics (VIA) Team reports to the Artificial Intelligence R&D Interagency Working Group.

NITRD AI R&D Federal Investments Dashboard

AI R&D Federal Investments Dashboard

This dashboard illustrates the Federal budget for nondefense AI R&D investments across several fiscal years. It provides both an overall budget rollup, as well as breakdowns of investments by agency and by NITRD Program Component Areas (PCAs), major subject areas for Federal IT R&D.

Learn more about Federal Agencies investments in AI R&D which shows sustained investments in key priority R&D areas: AI R&D Federal Investments Dashboard.

 

The National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office (NAIIO)

National AI Initiative Office

The National AI Initiative Office was established in January 2021 to oversee and implement the National AI Initiative Act (NAIIA).

The NAIIO along with the NITRD Subcommittee directs the NITRD AI R&D IWG to coordinate Federal R&D investment in AI.

Visit AI.gov to learn more about the NAIIO, it’s charge, and its significant activities that advance U.S. leadership in AI.
