Universities and Tech Giants Back National Cloud Computing Project

#artificialintelligence

The national research cloud would address a problem that is a byproduct of impressive progress in recent years. The striking gains made in tasks like language understanding, computer vision, game playing and common-sense reasoning have been attained thanks to a branch of A.I. called deep learning. That technology increasingly requires immense computing firepower. A report last year from the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, working with data from OpenAI, another artificial intelligence lab, observed that the volume of calculations needed to be a leader in advanced A.I. had soared an estimated 300,000 times in the previous six years. The cost of training deep learning models, cycling endlessly through troves of data, can be millions of dollars.


Congress Seeks Creation of National Research Cloud for Artificial Intelligence – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

A bipartisan cadre of tech-focused legislators in the House and Senate have introduced legislation that would direct the federal government to develop a national cloud computing infrastructure for artificial intelligence research.Introduced by Sens. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., Thursday, the National Cloud Computing Task Force Act would convene a mix of technical experts across academic, industry and government. The group would develop a nuanced roadmap for how the nation should build, deploy, govern and sustain a national research cloud for AI."With China focused on toppling the United States' leadership in AI, we need to redouble our efforts with a sustained commitment to the best and brightest by developing a national research cloud to ensure our technical researchers get the tools they need to succeed," Portman said in a statement. "By democratizing access to computing power we ensure that any American with computer science talent can pursue their good ideas."The A report submitted to Congress by the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence outlined how quickly China is closing in on the United States' tech research hold.


Portman introduces artificial intelligence bill – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Sen. Rob Portman recently introduced a bill with bipartisan backing to develop a national cloud computer for AI research, which would allow those with barriers to entry or facing hurdles to more efficiently progress their work.The bill, if passed, would establish a task force to develop a roadmap for development of AI technology, which figures to have wide ranging impacts on fields such as health care, transport and communications, among others, over the next few decades.Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes, learning, in machines. According to a release from Portman's office, the legislation would convene a group of technical experts across academia, government, and industry to develop a detailed roadmap for how the United States can build, deploy, govern, and sustain a national research cloud.A companion bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives."We With China focused on toppling the United States' leadership in AI, we need to redouble our efforts with a sustained commitment to the best and brightest by developing a national research cloud to ensure our technical researchers get the tools they need to succeed," said Portman."This …
