Michael Kratsios, the deputy U.S. chief technology officer and deputy assistant to the president in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, will lead the meeting of cabinet officials, academics and more than 40 company officials to discuss ways the government can support AI growth and research.

The Computer & Communications Industry Association has advocated for open markets, open systems, open networks, and competition to drive innovation for 45 years. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“Much like the internet, the growth of AI will transform a wide range of industries and sectors. CCIA appreciates the administration for taking this step to examine the current constraints that may unnecessarily limit AI research and innovation.”
