In addition to how to fund the project, we currently lack information on how the U.S. government intends to organize or restructure resources, who they intend to call on to participate in the effort, or how long we should see progress. Of course, Congress will ultimately decide how much money the project will receive.

1) Research and development: This will require government agencies to increase funding for AI research and report specifically on such research.

2) Infrastructure: This will encourage information sharing, although privacy issues may arise.

3) Management: Rules must be drafted by government agencies and participated by other civil and academic groups, but at least AI should be used safely and morally.

4) Labor force: support vocational training and re-education in computer science.

5) International participation: This will require cooperation with other countries on AI projects, without giving them the technological advantages the United States seeks.

Apart from this general framework, we know little about what will happen, although the government plans to release more information in the next six months.

The two subsets of AI are even more complex. They are called Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The purpose of machine learning is to enable machines to make accurate predictions based on the data provided by programmers. Now, in-depth learning is the culmination of our achievements in the field of AI. It is inspired by the human brain's learning and processing information patterns. Its goal is to enable machines to mark and classify people and items for classification and decision-making.

As far as AI strategy is concerned, the United States still lags behind other countries. In fact, the United States is the 19th country in the world to officially announce AI's future strategy. Canada was the first country to announce a similar strategy as early as March 2017. Since then, 17 countries, including France, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and China, have followed suit. For the United States, there is a special sense of urgency. Without a clear national AI strategy, the United States may lag behind other countries in AI innovation.

Earlier, companies such as Google had expressed concern about the use of privately developed AI technology by the government, especially in the war. Google had to stop working with the Defense Department on Maven last year after thousands of employees signed a petition demanding that the military stop using their technology. However, technology giants such as Amazon and Microsoft have promised to continue to work with the government, especially with the Ministry of Defense when they see fit.
