Lawmakers on the Hill sees a gap in the government's artificial intelligence strategy, so they're filling in. Will Hurd, R-Texas, and Robin Kelly, D-Ill., published a workforce AI white paper that calls for the rethinking of American education and workforce development in order for the U.S. to keep pace in the global race for AI dominance. The lawmakers worked with the Bipartisan Policy Center to release the paper, which is the first in a series of four. Congressional staff told FedScoop the lawmakers' work is not necessarily in reaction to the White House's but meant to be "complimentary." The white paper was a year in the making after Hurd and Kelly announced their bipartisan collaboration on AI policy to make up for the Trump administration's "woefully underprepared" approach to support American AI development, as Kelly put it.
