With President Biden’s Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence, Office of Management and Budget guidance on government use of AI, voluntary commitments from AI companies, and deep engagement with countries around the world, the Biden-Harris Administration has taken important actions to protect and benefit all Americans and to lead the global community.

As we build this critically important foundation for responsible AI, it’s time to put AI to work to achieve a better future for all.

On Thursday, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy Arati Prabhakar convened leaders from across government, congress, nonprofits, and industry to project visions for transformative national capabilities—examples of the big advances that could be realized with AI.

  • Wade Shen, Director for Proactive Health at ARPA-H, discussed using AI to develop new medicines for seemingly intractable diseases in months rather than decades.

  • Dana Weinstein, Principal Assistant Director for Industrial Innovation and Special Advisor for CHIPS R&D at OSTP, discussed a vision to develop new high-performance, sustainable materials in years rather than decades for globally competitive semiconductor manufacturing.
  • Ben Levine, Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Department of Transportation, discussed using AI for transportation projects in every region of the country that save lives and keep America moving.
