Rep. Will Hurd continues to campaign for an American national strategy around artificial intelligence, and the Texas Republican told FedScoop it's something he hopes to get done before the end of his final term in Congress. After explaining his ideal outline for the strategy during a keynote at the Dell Technologies Forum on Thursday, he told FedScoop, "this is on my list for the next 14 months" before he leaves office. Hurd recently announced he won't run for re-election in 2020. "We have to ensure America leads in artificial intelligence, quantum computing and other technologies that are going to define the course of this century," Hurd said. "That's why government should work on things like a national strategy to coordinate across government and academia and the private sector to advance research and development and adoption of artificial intelligence."
