White House Report Confirms Ramp-up in AI R&D Funding
Following yesterday's news anticipating President Trump's 2021 budget proposal and its projected allocations to AI, an official report from The White House has confirmed and expanded on those figures. The report opens with:
In a time of great power competition, President Trump's FY 2021 Budget puts America in position to maintain its global leadership in science and technology for generations to come.
Among the highlights from the budget are a doubling of "R&D spending in nondefense artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum information science (QIS) by 2022," which will result in "spending for AI R&D and interdisciplinary research institutes at the National Science Foundation to more than $830 million, which represents a more than 70 percent increase over the FY 2020 budget."
Yesterday's news did not have any projections for AI funding in Defense, but today's official report provided the following outline:
In regards to Defense AI R&D, DARPA [Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency] is investing $459 million in AI R&D, an increase of $50 million from FY 2020, and the Department of Defense's Joint AI Center is increasing its budget from $242 million in FY 2020 to $290 million in FY 2021.
