This report is a product of interagency collaboration, led by the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Select Committee on AI and Subcommittee on Machine Learning and AI (MLAI), that is one of several measures responding to the February 11, 2019, Executive Order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence. The report details four key recommendations for leveraging cloud computing resources for federally funded artificial intelligence (AI) research and development (R&D). Cloud platforms provide robust, agile, reliable, and scalable computing capabilities, which can help accelerate advances in AI. Cloud computing can also democratize access to the powerful computing capabilities needed for many types of AI R&D. This report is another step in the overall Federal Government strategy to position the United States as the world leader in artificial intelligence.
